Nine Giant Brewing finally opens up shop in Pleasant Ridge

Pleasant Ridge seems to be part of the next batch of neighborhoods poised for a surge of private investment. In fact, some of that investment is already flowing into Pleasant Ridge in the form of several new business openings over recent months – the latest of those being Nine Giant Brewing, which opened to the public on Saturday.

UrbanCincy was the first to report that Nine Giant Brewing would open up their brewery and restaurant in the heart of the neighborhood’s business district back in 2015. Now that the renovations and permitting is finally complete, Cincinnatians buzzing about the news from last year, can now go and check it out. They’re open on Wednesdays from 4pm to 10pm, Thursdays from 4pm to 11pm, Fridays from 4pm to 12am, Saturdays from 12pm to 12am, and Sundays from 12pm to 8pm.

    Went there on Saturday for the opening – had a great time and met some new friends. It seemed to be a nice steady flow of people the first few hours without being uncomfortably crowded. The beer was good, the initial limited menu was good (amazing house-made cookie), staff handled things well – it will be a very nice addition (possibly anchor) to the business district and overall neighborhood.

    Along with other recent openings, I hope this is the beginning of new investment into Pleasant Ridge, including new folks like myself moving in, those that want to stay in the city rather than move to West Chester but are priced out of other desirable neighborhoods like OTR, Hyde Park, Clifton, etc. Although one of the northern neighborhoods, Pleasant Ridge really does have a lot to offer through its affordable older housing stock, diverse mix of residents, walkability from business district to parks to churches to schools, etc. I really think that places that have maintained their walkability without the inflated price tags like Pleasant Ridge and Madisonville will continue to see a nice influx of new business and residents, including families, moving in. I’d love to say the same about other neighborhoods like Bond Hill, Avondale, etc., but I just don’t see the same walkability currently in some of those places to draw folks in, but maybe this can change.

    I can’t wait for the other known things in the pipeline in Pleasant Ridge (mexican restaurant, Molly Malone’s, Grand Central Deli, Share Cheesebar, etc.) as well as future endeavors to open up, spurring even more investments and new residents.
