Another ale house with a great view of the river, Hofbrauhaus is a German restaurant modeled after one of Munich’s oldest and most famous breweries of the same name.

Taft’s Ale House

If your taste for beer leads you to the more traditional brewing techniques, Taft’s Ale House will satisfy your needs. A combination pub and taphouse, Taft’s is as much a spacious American restaurant as it is a fine place to sit down at the bar. There’s floor-level and balcony seating with different bar options on each floor, with both finely-upholstered booths and mahogany wooden tables to give you an authentic experience that you won’t find anywhere else in Cincinnati.

Northern Row Brewery

Are you tired of the loud and rowdy atmosphere of most breweries? Are you looking for a smaller and more comfortable environment to eat and drink? Northern Row Brewery on W. McMicken Avenue might just be for you. The convenient location makes this brewery a perfect stop for an afternoon of bar hopping or a simple wind down after a hard day of work. You don’t have to be an aficionado to enjoy the beer here.
