Ohio Knife always gives you more than you expect, yet you still want seconds. If there is a real-life personification of the "this one goes to eleven" mentality, you can find it in this Cincinnati band made up of Scotty Wood [bass], Andrew Higley [keyboards], Joe Suer [drums] and Jason Snell [guitar, vocals].

Everything about Ohio Knife is big, bold, loud and full of serious in-your-face attitude. The same can be said for everything about their latest release Our Neighborhood.

  Bockfest, that celebration of Cincinnati’s brewing tradition, Over-the Rhine, and spring, which we all need so desperately right now, starts Friday.

The idea of beer & sausages is not new to Cincinnati, but what is new and cool is The Growler Stop, located next to Wags Park on Church Street in the heart of Newtown.

Though just a few weeks old, The Growler Stop has made connections with many of the great local beer makers in town, including Rhinegeist, Blank Slate, MadTree, 50 West, Rivertownand Mt. Carmel Brewery.

With dozens of local breweries in operation, Cincinnati was once known as the beer capital of the world. But by the mid-Seventies, only two local breweries remained. Now, thanks to a growing list of craft beer makers and a renewed appreciation of the city’s rich brewing history, Cincinnati is once again becoming known for its beer.

The Betts House in Cincinnati’s west end has just opened its newest, major exhibition called Bricks, Barrel Vaults, & Beer: The Architectural Legacy of Cincinnati Breweries. With the explosion of new and historic breweries throughout the city, this could not be a timelier exhibit as Dayle Dearduff, interim executive director, tells our Jane Durrell.

As part of American Craft Beer Week, I spoke with Mike Stuart, local beer expert and owner of The Brew Professor blog.

In the past few years, craft beer production has been blossoming around the Greater Cincinnati area.  To help celebrate Craft Beer Week and to benefit local-area charities, many of these local beer makers have organized some great events.

American Craft Beer Week is May 13-19.  To help celebrate, here is a re-post of my 2012 interview with Mike and Kathleen Dewey from Mt. Carmel Brewing Company.

Since 2005, Mike and Kathleen Dewey have been producing quality hand-crafted beers and ales in a white farm house along Mt. Carmel/Tabasco Rd. 

Caitlin Behle and John Sebastian are passionate supporters of local music - and local beer.

They started Drunk Music Reviews in 2011 as an extension of Each Note Secure, the local music blog.
