Brink Brewing Co. is the neighborhood craft brewery in the College Hill neighborhood of Cincinnati. In less than three years of operation they have accumulated an impressive amount of awards that now include three medals at the Great American Beer Festival.
Last week the brewery brought together a bunch of local artisans and makers for a Maker’s Market in celebration of its local community. The mart was held on its patio and the parking lot behind the brewery. Just love this idea for both increasing traffic at the brewery for a day and for the promotion of community and other fellow local artisans.
Vendors represented a variety of art forms including pottery, up-cycled furniture, sculpture, painting, jewelry making, photography and more.
In addition to its award-winning craft beer, Brink also sold a limited amount of Brink ceramicware to commemorate the inaugural year of this event. These glasses were handmade by Emily Myerson of Embly Ceramics and Lacie Turcott of Queen Bee Ceramics who also inspired and helped organize this special event.
Che and AJs Cheesesteaks Food Trucks served food and local musicians, Kevin Hill and Calumet Music played music throughout the day. The beer lineup included a wide variety of beers including, Super Jboy IPA, Hold the Reins English Mild, Pineapple Sour and an Imperial Moozie Milk Stout with cocoa nibs and blueberry. During the event Brink tapped El Lauro, a new Dark Mexican Lager.
