It’s week nine on our quest to visit and write about a Cincinnati brewery each week in 2019. I’m hoping that we’ll be able to cover just about every one by year’s end!
Follow along with the 52 Cincinnati Breweries Series here.
Breweries in Cincinnati Series Week #9: Visit to 16 Lots Brewing Company
Way back in the 1800’s, 16 lots were purchased by Revolutionary War officer Major William Mason. These 16 lots on the Muddy Creek in Southwest Ohio would later become the City of Mason … and the namesake of Mason’s first craft brewery.
The brewing company is nestled in a strip mall but don’t let that stop you from stopping in. Walk through the doors and you’ll find a great space.
They have a long L-shaped bar with lots of seating. And tables galore!
They have darts in the back, some sofa seating with nearby board games, and shuffleboard.
