We’re headed to Brink Brewing Company tonight for a panel to find out if Cincinnati is in a craft beer bubble!
Come on down to Brink (5905 Hamilton Ave, Cincinnati 45224) at 7:30 pm tonight or stream it live on our Brew Minds Facebook page! We’ll have video up on our YouTube page as soon as possible after the event.
If you’re a fan of craft beer, then no doubt you’ve seen or heard this:
“A new brewery is opening in XYZ neighborhood!”
“Oh great, another new brewery. Isn’t this market already too saturated?”
Well, let’s stop arguing on Facebook/Twitter/Reddit/Instagram and let’s sit down and talk about it. Brink Brewing is proud to host a moderated discussion around this very controversial topic. We welcome craft beer owners & brewers, bloggers, and enthusiasts.
We’ll gather around our Community Table and let craft beer do what it does best: bring people together.
It’ll be moderated by Andy McCleese from Brink and Tom Aguero from Brew Minds. We’ve got a great panel lined up including:
- Roxanne Westendorf from the Brewers Association
- Justin Hemminger from the Ohio Craft Brewers Association
- Bret Kollmann Baker from Urban Artifact
- Sam Marts from Cavalier Distributing
- Frank Seta of the Lucky Turtle
Also, if you’re able to make it down to Brink, or watch the live stream, we’ll save some time at the end to take your questions for the panelists!
It had to happen some time. Fresh on the heels of the release of fan-favorite Dreamsicle, MadTree Brewing announces they are canning “Pilgrim.”
Fans have been clamoring for Pilgrim Pale Ale to be canned since its initial release at the 1.0 facility. With the expansion at 2.0 in Oakley, MadTree now has the capacity to can the beer.
The brewery is also partnering with La Soupe and Busken bakery as part of the event.
Here are all the details on the release, straight from MadTree:

Brew Minds heads to Fifty West Brewing Company once more to talk with owner Bobby Slattery, as well as new hires Scott LaFollette (formerly of Blank Slate) and Chris Seigman, (formerly of Mt. Carmel Brewing.) We discuss their new roles, Fifty Fest and so much more.
When natural disasters strike those affected need all sorts of aid and something simple as clean drinking water is often on top of that list. AB-InBev and Miller do a great job getting clean canned drinking water into disaster areas. This year craft breweries have stepped up to the plate to help as well with both Oskar Blues and now Cincinnati’s own Braxton Brewing sending in canned water.

Last night Jesse and Tom sat down with Cincy Brew Bus owner Mike Stokes to learn about the Brew Bus. We also got into a conversation about how far is too far to be a “Cincinnati Brewery” as well as a brief debate on dogs in breweries.
Blank Slate closed just over three weeks ago. Here is his statement on the closing and many fond remembrances. Many people have wondered about where the owner and head brewer Scott LaFollette would end up. I am happy to report he has been hired by Fifty West to become the production manager! This is great news for Scott, Fifty West, and Cincinnati beer drinkers!
