First up for us was the Mt. Carmel Brewing Company in Anderson Township. Blink and you’ll miss this white house with an unassuming sign in the front yard – but you’ll quickly turn back and grab your spot at the bar!
The brewery has a tap room which allows them to sell the beers that they brew on site – but not sell any food. They sell a variety of beers on tap – which you can also take home in a growler.
These were actually how they started out – selling growlers at Kroger and nearby gas stations. It’s great to see them keep this tradition going. The growler will cost you $4, then $8 to fill it and it has about 5 beers in it.
The beer list is quite nice and they even have a couple of selections made especially for Dewey’s Pizza.
What they also have is a tour! The tours are Saturdays at 1pm and 230pm – you can call and reserve a spot or just show up and they’ll probably make room for you.
Our guide was so knowledgeable – and a great guy. He’s definitely a beer guy – it was a great time.
While I didn’t get to see bottles being labeled – he showed us where the magic happens. I love that part. They hate it – I think I’ll have to volunteer for them one day!
Last week when we went – we came across fellow foodie CincyHound! He had brought some of his famous and amazing barbecued pork for a friend’s birthday. I have to say – this was DELICIOUS! He said it was better than Eli’s and I have to say – for the pork – he might be right. It was juicy and melt in your mouth! He’s a regular – so if you come on a Saturday – you might be lucky enough to run into him and coax him out of some of this amazing meat treat!
