57 Cincinnati-Area Craft Breweries to Cross off Your Bucket List

Beer is one of the four basic food groups in Cincinnati, along with chili, steaks, and ice cream. The early German immigrants’ skill at brewing and consuming beer was one of their lasting legacies, not only in Over-the-Rhine but across the region. An explosion in craft beer startups has made Cincinnati a brewery town once again—the No. 1 beer city in the U.S., according to a 2019 study. To that, we say, Prost!

For our April 2020 Craft Beer Boom issue, we created an extensive map of the city’s 57 breweries. We organized our list below by region, and let you know which breweries sell food, are dog friendly, offer on-site parking, have an outdoor area, and serve alcohol other than beer.
