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.

The Cliftones

The time has come! The infamous Cliftones come back to Fretboard Brewing to celebrate the greatest thing since slice bread was invented: the release of the barrel age, Cliftone Cookie Jar, an imperial stout aged on Maverick chocolate and graham cracker flavors.

In collaboration with The Cliftones, Fretboard brewed this superb stout and stowed away part of the batch in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for over 9 months. Now this barrel age stout has been brought to perfectio and will be available on draft for a limited time and available in 16 ounce cans to go. Make sure you get here for this event!
