Listermann's is one badass homebrew shop. You can find about everything that you are looking for, and the staff is more than willing to help you with whatever you need. You can buy any and all brewing equipment, from the extract brewers to the hardcore all grain and keg applications. They also have a great selection of ingredients, and their ingredient kits are top notch. They also have a good amount of equipment that is made on site, which is great because it is always available. You can also visit them online to order anything they have in the store. I have visited the store, and ordered from them online, and been very satisfied both ways. If you want to venture into homebrewing, or are just wanting to pick up some extra ingredients/equipment, this is the place to go around Cincinnati.

Definitely a popular spot for locals, as I'm pretty sure everyone knew everyone. Service was great, portfolio is fantastic, definitely a major highlight from the trip

This brewery is right across the street from a university, so i am SURE they get a lot of business that way. However, they also have fundraisers, the ones i love include dogs/cats. LOL. I can usually find one or 2 beers I like. And the fact that they have a food truck company that will have a permanent kitchen on site makes it even better.

Had a great, inexpensive flight of beers. Service was fantastic. Only downside was no food, but you can bring it in with you. Decent selection of their own beers on tap. One or two special variants. Bottles for sale. Will stop again when in town.

There's a lot of room here for drinking, but there is currently no food on site (nor food trucks). Tap list was about 10-12 Listermann/Triple Digit brews. Bartender was friendly and personable.

I made my second voyage to Listermann/Triple Digit last weekend to meet up with some friends. We went there last year even though my buddy said he heard it wasn't good. I wanted to try the Nutcase and Chickow! I talked him into it, and it happened to be the release day for barrel aged Chickow! Now it is my buddy's favorite greater Cincinnati area brewery. But I digress.

We met around noon on Friday. The taproom wasn't busy, which is how I like it. The bar has four stools, and there are two or three large picnic tables as far as seating goes. It is a small tasting room. There is a homebrew supply area in the back. I ordered a flight of four beers. The Chickow! on nitro was great. The IPA's were okay. Sometimes a small sample is hard to judge.

Talking with my friends from the area and the bartender I learned that they are in the process of expanding the taproom which is much needed. Twenty people would make this place feel crowded as is.

I do really like the dark beers this place puts out. I am new to the lighter beers from them and will definitely revisit. It will be worth another visit after the renovation is done.

Stopped by Listermann's during a Cincy beer visit. The place did not match my expectations. I'd had some really good beers, like Chickow, and was expecting a decent facility. Unfortunately, the quality of the facility does not match the quality of the beers. Good beers in a run down looking place. Parking lot was pure mud on the day I visited. Be sure to wear your boots. Inside was small and bare. Good service, but a really small selection. Not really worth going out of your way to visit.

Three beers I had were all extremely flavorful. They don't brew ordinary beers. Definitely pushing the beer envelope in Cincinnati.

Small taproom but very nice atmosphere. Good beers on tap and you can buy bottles and growlers to go. Super friendly staff who sit and chat with you while you drink. Very impressed with listermanns.
