Episode #22: Better Beer in Cincinnati

The creators of Hoperatives join us to discuss Cincinnati’s beer brewing heritage and the huge resurgence in local breweries in recent years.

Craft Beer SamplerOn the 22nd episode of The UrbanCincy Podcast, we’re joined by Carla Gesell-Streeter and Tom Streeter, creators of the website Hoperatives, which focuses on “better beer (in Cincinnati and beyond).” We discuss how old breweries like Hudepohl were able to hold their own against giants like Anheuser-Busch InBev and MillerCoors, and why craft beer is now making a comeback across the country. Tom and Carla explain how Cincinnati’s many local breweries are differentiating themselves, not only with their marketing but with their own unique styles of beer.
