In this edition of Cincy Brewcast we meet Mike Albarella and Brandon Hughes, the brother-in-law team behind emerging brewery Nine Giant, in Pleasant Ridge, Ohio. We talk to them about their brewing philosophies, the unique qualities about their “P-Ridge” brewpub and what brought them to this point. We also get from them a fairly committal date for their spring debut! Head brewer Mike also brings along some samples for us to pull “From the Beer Fridge”, including “Ess Eff” California “Steam” Common ale, “This Beer is Named Brothers” Red Rye IPA, their take on Berliner Weisse, Saison, Schwarzbier, Barleywine and a few more. It’s a very exciting program from a brewery that we feel will become a “Giant” in the Cincy Craft scene.
