Am I the only person high on Covington right now? Ok maybe I've been saying this for a year or two but Covington still reminds me of OTR just a few years ago. The neighborhood is on the tipping point of awesome. The happenings are little low key, until this weekends opening of Braxton Brewing Co. that is. I was all worked up to hit their grand opening Friday night until I checked their FB page and noticed almost 2000 people had RSVP'd. And I thought you know what, screw that I'm betting they will still have beer left over Saturday and they did! Fantastic space and awesome branding. But I have one question, no rollup doors or windows? I wouldn't open anything these days that didn't open up in some way to the outside. But Braxton Brewing isn't about me.
Its funny that there is a segment of people convinced that a Cincy brewer has to fail now because the market is over saturated. I asked Greg Hardman this very question a year or so ago and you know what he told me? Christian Moerlien had 1% of the Cincinnati area beer market at that time. I don't think any Cincinnati craft brewer is going to do anything but print money for the foreseeable future.
