Way out on Cincinnati's East Side, a brewery is tucked away in an unsuspecting farmhouse off of State Route 32. Beginning in 2005, Mt. Carmel Brewing Company set up shop in the basement using re-purposed kettles and copper piping to create their one of a kind beer. Today, while operating with fancier equipment, the establishment turns 500 pounds of grain into 30 barrels of beer from each tank they brew. That equals one case every minute or 864 bottles an hour.

Recently, the brewery opened its tap room where visitors can stop by, enjoy a pint or bottle of any of the Mt. Carmel ales, and take a tour of the facility. The tap room has a clean, country feel with hardwood floors, a quaint bar, and oak tables. In the back of the property is a lush green space, pond, and patio seating, perfect for Mt. Carmel's favorite pastime: porch sittin'.
