The beer choice is excellent. Everything from IPA, Lager, Amber ales, stouts - really good. The food, however, was terrible - unless you only want to eat Tri-tip or chicken. A poor, very limited menu, the food under-seasoned and the potatoes out of a bag....More

This is a great brewpub in an old church. They've done a great job utilizing the space to accent the church architecture. It's also filled with the smell of smoky BBQ. We sat at the altar, I mean 1st floor bar, but there's great seating...More

We spent two days in Cincinnati on our Dodgers baseball journey....my seat mate on the flight in recommended Taft's, and she was spot-on. Great dinner, and their porter and IPA are quite good.

My wife and I had a good flight of beers. Our sandwiches were good, and the chips were great. Cherrywood ale was excellent.

Cool venue in renovated church...definitely worth the visit for that alone. Each of us had a couple of the beers - decent, but nothing great. We had appetizers, tri-tip steak (overdone), and taco's. Food was average. May give it another shot due to atmosphere.

This is one of the most interesting venues I've been to in awhile. The vibe, atmosphere and decor of this renovated church (built in 1850) and re-purposed as a craft brewery and brewpub is an outstanding example of saving old places that run the risk...More

We loved this place! We go to a lot of craft breweries & this is one of our favorites! It was an old episcopalian church that they converted into a brewery after a fire destroyed most of the interior. How cool is that?! We did...More

We were told by several people that this was a must see site in "Over the Rhine." When you look at photos of the building before the renovations, you can see why this is a model for what is possible with enough money and creativity!...More

They do not have a parking lot. There is metered parking on the street in front and all around it.

Yes, children should do fine, but you might want to think twice before you bring an infant. Seating is on benches, so infant car seats may not be terribly stable. I don't know if they have high chairs or not.
