Welcome to the New Brew House!
Which, you will find, is very much like the Old Brew House—friendly people, great food and drinks, funky decor—a wonderful place to meet old friends and make new ones, listen to fantastic music, eat, drink, and enjoy!
We're Laura and Chris Davis (brother & sister, not husband & wife), and we just bought the Brew House from Jack & Jan. Don't worry, Jack will still be around; he's agreed to come in regularly, introduce us to his customers, and teach us his magic sauce. We're long-time Walnut Hills people, who love the neighborhood and its great mix of people, and we're keenly aware of how important the Brew House has been in keeping the neighborhood together and maintaining its special wonderfulness. And we're determined to keep that tradition going and to move slowly and deliberately in any changes that we make.
You'll see changes, to be sure; we're going to brighten the place up, fix it up, spice up the menus, do everything we can to keep our old friends coming back and bring new friends in.
We look forward to meeting each of you. We'll be here every day, behind the bar, out on the floor, sitting at tables talking with you all. Please introduce yourself if we haven't met you; if you love the Brew House, we're certain we'll like you.
Jack Cameron opened the Brew House in 1978 in Cincinnati's historic Eden Park district, and it's become one of the City's best-known and best-loved neighborhood watering holes. With an extensive menu, a phenomenally eclectic jukebox, a full collection of domestic and imported beers, friendly staff, diverse and interesting collection of regulars, and free high-speed wireless connection to the Internet, it's no wonder that the Brew House won City Beat's award as Cincinnati's "Best Neighborhood Dive" not once but twice!
Whether you come for a delicious and modestly priced lunch, or to unwind after work, or to party with friends in the evening, you'll find the Brew House to be a warm and welcoming spot. Talk to people; introduce yourself to your server or to the bartender. The chances are good that they'll remember you the next time you visit.
Special events at the Brew House include the great Brew House Chili Cook-Off in February, now in its twentieth year—it turns out that a lot of the regulars cook as good as they eat. And a truly awesome Halloween Party, and a somewhat raucous New Year's Eve celebration, and various other ad hoc parties through the year. We'll post news about those on this site, along with Daily Specials and the regular menu. If you check the Specials regularly, we'll let you know about what's coming down in plenty of time to suit up and put your party face on.
