It’s week six 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 #6: Visit to Sons of Toil Brewing
We headed out to Mt. Orab for this one. It was a stretch to get out there but now that I’ve been, I will totally make that trip again. We will return when the weather is warm as they have a GREAT outdoor space to enjoy.
What’s with the name? I love what their site says about it: “Our family, like many in this area, came from a long line of farmers who made their living through hard work and sacrifice… All honor is due to those horny handed Sons of Toil, who left their native land and crossed the ocean, cast their lot in the swamp lands of Green Township, and by hard labor and unceasing toil, have made it what it now is.”
By using locally sourced ingredients (when available), they are giving back to the local farmers who work the land to grow the crops and their communities. And all the wasted grain from the brewery is given to local farmers as free feed.
I have to say this is definitely one of the friendliest breweries we have been to thus far. One of the owners greeted us when we came in (we must have looked bewildered) and he gave us the details on what they do. We chose a seat at a communal table, enjoyed a few selections from their 20 taps of cold beer, and made a few new friends!
