Cincinnati has a rich brewing history that is being reborn in their wide selection of both established and up and coming microbreweries. Many of these breweries offer tours on certain days of the week and have tap rooms that are open to the public so you can taste some amazing beers, many of which are only available in Cincinnati.

Tonic Tours offers public tours of selected Cincinnati microbreweries on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month but if you are setting out on your own here are a few more
