About
The Cincinnati brewery and tap room take you back to the late 1800’s, when Bad Tom Smith ruled Eastern Kentucky, with a cozy vibe, built for conversations, good times, and great beer. Eighteen taps provide Bad Tom Smith’s full portfolio of beers including seasonal’s, collaboration and single batch brews from our Ohio City Brew team. Quality bourbons, cocktails, wine and other spirits are poured with Bad Tom Smith Bourbon coming in the summer of 2020. Our tap room seats over a 100 with our bar seating 20 and our lounge includes comfortable group seating, a dart board and a variety of games. Six TVs provide patrons with something to view, along with a 120 year old bank vault that houses barrels and casks of our Bad Tom Smith bourbon that continues to age. In addition to our classic Bavarian Pretzel, snack mixes and peanuts, our on-site partners Zablong Peculiar Pizza, serve pizza, wings, salads and cauliflower bites that pair perfectly with our beers.

A surprising pleasure
Oct 2021 • Couples
I'm a bit biased, since I'm in their beer club. However...I firmly belive they have a good selection of craft beer styles, a selection of bourbon (and some other liquor), and a small selection of delicious food.
This place is on one corner of a busy intersection in Madisonville. Parking can be a challenge, especially since expensive apartment buildings are coming up all around it.

Not a brewery, just a bar.
Jan 2020
Just left. Wanted to have a few drinks with my whole family, 8 adults and 3 kids. There are no changing tables in the restrooms. The couch outside of the restrooms is off limits for diaper changes too apparently (I found out too late). The owner lady yelled at me and told me it was unsanitary to do that. Then I threw the diaper away in the 1 quart garbage can in the restroom. The owner later confronted me and told me that "this place was built to be more like a bar"(Direct Quote). But don't worry you can take your dogs in there anytime, even when they serve food(It's Sunday-2 big dogs). Bartenders were GREAT, Owner ruined it. I wish the one on Eastern was still open, it was ran much better.

Won't be back, not worth passing Listermann or Mad Tree to get to this place.

Bad Tom Smith - Brewery Lover Can’t Miss
Jun 2019 • Couples
Bad Tom Smith is a hole-in-the-wall brewery tucked on the side of Eastern Ave. Quiet, small place, but has a pleasant neighborhood feel. One tv, one bar, handful of tables. Free popcorn and peanuts. It’s what it appears to be. Get a flight if it’s your first time. Recommended was the Wicked Sheryl’s, best seller (strawberry hint). Not a fan of darker beer or porters, but their Bad Tom Smith and Bad Luck were very good. Light and great taste. 13 Preachers was the first to be finished in the flight. It’s an Oktoberfest type beer. Overall, a definite visit for a brewery lover, but if it’s your first time in town, there are better brewery environments.

Great service and beer. The name alone is intriguing enough. Has the normal draft room board games. Right around the corner from another hidden gem.

Loved their beer!
Oct 2018 • Couples
We tried 8of the beers offered. We liked them all! Pumpkin Ale was a favorite. Our bartender was Heather & she was very friendly & knowledgeable. They're also dog friendly. Apparently next spring they're moving to a new, bigger space. We plan on coming back down to check it out!

We are glad that you had the chance to enjoy time with Heather. She does a wonderful job in taking care of our patrons. We look forward to serving you again soon! John & Sheryl Owners

This is a really nice brew pub. The beer was very good on the whole and our bar keep was extremely knowledgeable and let my brother go behind the counter to see the entire operation.

Great Find
Jul 2017 • Couples
Have driven past this craft brewery numerous times and finally decided to stop on a Saturday evening. Todd, the bartender, was so helpful as I ordered a flight and he said after I picked 1 I had to trust his judgement on the other two. He was right too. He picked 1 I would have picked and another I wouldn't, but I ended up enjoying his choices the best!

We enjoyed eating popcorn and peanuts and playing several games of Battleship and asking each other Trival Pursuit questions. Had a blast going thru the record albums and playing the old lps on the console record player like my mother's.

Will go back again and again!

Small Brewery with practically no parking
May 2017
The Brewery is very small but with a tasty double IPA. They have a cabinet record player that really works with a nice selection of vinyl. There is an outside patio. They have a big selection of merchandise as well. My biggest complaint is that all the onsite parking is reserved. You have to park on the street.
