On Stage


Fretboard Brewing Company is proud to have entertainment every Friday and Saturday night. Check out the schedule for entertainment on Thursdays, too and start your weekend early!

We do not charge a cover charge for bands unless pointed out on the schedule below.  New acts added every week so check back often because the calendar is updated regularly and bands are subject to change.


We believe that great music makes everything better. Time with friends, sharing a few beers, or really great BBQ — it’s better with Live Music!

Alcohol other than Fretboard Beer is not permitted in the facility including wine and other brand beer. We are a production brewery and only permitted to serve what we brew at the facility. Smoked Out Cincy is our dedicated food provider – please no outside food. Desserts and cake are permitted for birthday parties and events.
