Where does Rhinegeist distribute?
Currently, we distribute our beers and ciders in Ohio, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Indiana, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.
If I don’t live in one of those places, can Rhinegeist ship me beer?
Nope! We’d recommend phoning a friend or using an external service (like Tavour!).
Can I host an event at the brewery?
Yes! If you are interested in booking one of our private events spaces, please visit our Private Events page.
Is there food available at the brewery?
Yes! We proudly serve food from OTR Chili, located right downstairs. Due to health and safety protocols, we do not allow outside food at the moment.
Is there parking available at the brewery?
There is a free parking lot directly across from the brewery entrance, a paid parking lot at the corner of Dunlap St. and Henry St., and limited street parking in the area around the brewery.
Does Rhinegeist have tours?
Due to COVID-19, we currently do not offer tours. Stay tuned for updates about when regular tours will resume!
Can we bring kids into the brewery?
Kids are more than welcome to visit the brewery! All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times, and observe social distancing guidelines.
Are dogs allowed inside of the brewery?
Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted inside the brewery. Given the nature of our business, we need things kept highly sanitary.
Can I purchase kegs through the brewery?
We keep a small inventory of kegs to be sold through our taproom. If you are interested in making such a purchase please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can confirm the availability and reserve the keg(s).
Do you sell cans through the brewery?
Yes! We sell cans at our taproom merch store. You can also use our Can Finder to find our brews in the market.
Do you offer growler or crowler fills?
Yes! Typically, if a beer or a cider is on tap, it can also be put in a growler or crowler to go (unless otherwise noted at the bar!).
Do you have a public elevator?
Rhinegeist is ADA compliant. We do not have a public elevator, but are happy to accommodate those in need of one using our events elevator! To access this elevator, we request you call the taproom in advance (513-381-1367) or, upon arrival, have someone from your party come up to the taproom and grab a staff member. They will let you in at our events entrance, located directly across from our parking lot. If the events entrance is open, we ask that you DO NOT enter without a staff member, as an event could be in progress.
Are your Fruited Ales (e.g. Bubbles, Wowie) gluten-free?
Are your ciders (e.g. Semi Dry, Swizzle) gluten-free?
Our ciders are not certified gluten-free as they are brewed on equipment shared with beer and may contain malt. We do everything to make sure the cider product stays away from any gluten (i.e. tanks, canning lines, and beer lines are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before switching between products), but cannot guarantee that it does.
