“OMB = OMG”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

If you enjoy beer – do not miss this Brewery! Truly great beer – esp. luv the ‘Copper’. Prices were also very reasonable – did not try any food. Fun tour and very informative – interesting to understand the history behind this start-up. Atmosphere is very casual and mirrored similar to the German beer halls- big open tables with lots of talking and meeting folks. (Yes, I lived in Germany for 2 years). They have two big halls inside and outdoor sitting. They had a live band the afternoon I was there. I visited solo since I was on business in the area and thoroughly enjoyed the visit and friendliness of the staff and guests. This now small brewery has all the basics to continue to grow and prosper. Looking forward to seeing their beer on a local shelf someday. Great way to spend an afternoon (or anytime).

“Fresh beer is best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

I really have not eaten here, but when I see one of their brews on a restaurant menu that's what I'll have. Olde Mecklenburg Copper is my favorite brew.

“Great place for fresh German-like beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2012

OMB Beer has a genuine German flavor and the atmosphere is much like we experienced in Frankfurt (not Kentucky). Decent food is ordered at the counter and is served inside or out at picnic tables shared with other patrons. Fire pit outside for chillier evenings. No awesome views (it's in a warehouse district) but a great place to enjoy fresh beer and sandwiches once in awhile.
