All About Big Ash Brewing
It’s hard to come up with an idea that is unique when you have a beer scene like you do in Cincinnati. Just when it seems like there’s someone doing nearly everything, a place like Big Ash manages to open up and do things with a fun spin on it.
Founded by a group of friends who decided to co-op their homebrewing hobby, Big Ash is designed to be a place for friends to hang out over a few beers. The simplicity of that idea has given way to a new concept for Cincinnati’s breweries – self serve taps, which enable drinkers to choose how much beer they want, and to pour it themselves.
What To Expect From Big Ash
The Big Ash taproom is made up of two spaces (plus the big outdoor patio). Inside the front of the taproom is where the beer tap “wall” is located, and the rear of the space is a massive beer hall filled with community tables to foster conversation.
The 7bbl brewhouse is tucked away in the back of the space, next to their pizza kitchen (you can order your own pizza from a kiosk at the front of the room). It’s all open, communal and exactly the vibe I think that they were hoping for when the idea was created.
The beer is poured from 28 taps, about 50/50 Big Ash brews and guest brews, making sure that there is something for everyone that steps foot in the bar.
