Brink Brewing Co.
    5905 Hamilton Ave., College Hill
    “Good beer is about the people, the stories and the experience,” according to Brink’s co-founders John and Sarah McGarry. That is something the McGarrys learned from family — specifically their Uncle Jack. It was his fridge, chock full of artisan beers, and his neighborly values that led Brink to open its doors in College Hill in February 2017. The taproom’s communal table sits 20 and a brick wall stands covered in framed photos of the customers and community.

Taft’s Brewpourium
    4831 Spring Grove Ave., Spring Grove Village
    An extension of Over-the-Rhine’s Taft’s Ale House, the Brewpourium is fitted with all of Taft’s top beers, New Haven-style “apizza” and enough televisions to satisfy all of Cincinnati’s sports fans. Apizza is a crispy, coal-fired version of Neapolitan pizza that originated in Connecticut, which the Brewpourium opted to serve over other styles (e.g. New York, Chicago) because William Howard Taft — former president, Cincinnati native and brewery namesake — went to Yale in New Haven. The dough is made with filtered water and flour imported from Italy, and toppings range from classic white clam to a BBQ Pork Pie.

3 Points Urban Brewery
    331 E. 13th St., Pendleton
    Just close enough to lure Over-the-Rhine foot traffic, Pendleton’s 3 Points is an easy and design-forward destination for a casual pint. Predicated on three points — art, experience and beer — and located at the intersection of three points — Reading Road and Liberty and Main streets — Cincinnati artists interested in more exposure should look up this brewery: 3 Points utilizes art produced by locals to promote each beer in their portfolio and also to decorate the taproom. The art builds community and creates an engaging space, which can also be used for co-working during the day (doors open at 9 a.m. Monday-Friday). “We want there to be something for everyone, so that everyone can enjoy Pendleton,” says Aaron Westendorf, the brewery’s marketing manager. “Along with the beer we make, we also proudly serve a full bar offering of wine and cocktails. In early 2019 we will also be opening our fried chicken restaurant, CHX, attached to the brewery, giving people a true all-around experience.”
    What to try: Origami, a “Post Coast IPA” that unfolds nicely on the palate with original tropical artwork by local printmaker Matthew Dayler, whose work can also be found wrapped around 3 Points’ bar face.

Samuel Adams Cincinnati Taproom
    1727 Logan St., Over-the-Rhine
    There’s no need to truck over to Boston for fresh Sam Adams. This taproom — across from the Samuel Adams Cincinnati Brewery — features indoor and outdoor space, spans nearly 9,000 square feet and offers an array of unique beers brewed both onsite and across the street. These include fan favorites like the Cincy-inspired 513, Boston Lager and Summer Ale. “We’ve been dreaming of opening a taproom in the neighborhood since we purchased the brewery 21 years ago, so we could share our beers with local drinkers,” says Samuel Adams founder Jim Koch. “Cincinnati is my hometown with such a rich brewing history and I’ve seen our city blossom as a craft beer mecca that is home to some of the finest breweries and taprooms in the country.”
    What to try: Coffee Pale Ale, a taproom exclusive that’ll perk you right up.
