Cincinnati has become known for its breweries, but you don’t have to go Downtown for good craft beer and tasty bites. West Chester’s Grainworks Brewing Company features 20 taps, delectable food and a comfortable indoor and outdoor space for sipping a cold one. Crafted from three local friends, Grainworks was built on the same soil from which Cincinnati’s greatest breweries harvested their grain.
Served at Grainworks is Grist Bistro, an always-fresh culinary experience offering a rotating line-up of chef’s seasonal menu items. Together, Grainworks and Grist make the perfect pairing. Stop by and enjoy a craft beer and delicious food on the patio this summer.
