Heading to Cincinnati: Breweries to try or Places to Buy Whiskey

So I’m headed to Cincinnati this weekend which, lo and behold, is right next to Kentucky.

Any breweries to try? Even ones outside of Cincinnati/OH?

If I drove into Kentucky, are there shops that would have whiskey/bourbon which are rare in CA?



Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati is worth a stop.
Party Source just across the bridge in KY is probably a better place to look for Bourbon. Not sure what is there that is not in CA though.


Party Source is thoroughly picked over. But you might find some bottles of Party Source select barrels which can be quite good. It is a fun place to visit. They might have some interesting things available from the tasting area, but Bourbon is such a hot market that even mildly allocated stuff gets snatched quickly and PS was lottery-ing the really allocated stuff.

Jungle Jim’s is … unique.
