Every year, CityBeat
publishes the Best Of Cincinnati®
, wherein readers and staffers alike pick which bars are the booziest, which people are the coolest and which shops are your best bet for dropping a pretty penny. Cincinnati has a thriving craft beer and brewing scene, and that means nearly everywhere you turn, you'll find a kickass brewery or chill taproom to spend a lazy Saturday or fun night out in. Many of these breweries and taprooms offer a rotating tap list, meaning there's always something new to try, and delicious food from food trucks, in-house kitchens or even neighbors (the fab Braxton/Dewey's collab
). And while you'll find a plethora of these spots around Greater Cincinnati, below are the breweries and taprooms our readers say are the best of the best.
