Hey there, I’m The Gnome!

When you think of drinking here in Cincinnati, what do you think of? Our breweries? How about the cocktail world? Maybe you think of the neighborhood bar that you fell in love with. Whatever it is, I’m obsessed with it. I love this city, and to say that I also love our drinking culture is a massive understatement. The goal of this website is to bring to you all that you need to know about drinking in Cincinnati. I started it focused on Cincinnati breweries, but as time has passed, it’s grown far beyond that!

If you’re looking for a Cincinnati Beer Blog, you’ve definitely found it right here, but if you’re looking for more than that… a hub for all things drinking in this beautiful city? Well… stick around. You’re gonna like this!
