Visit our taproom to see where all the magic happens. Bring family and friends. Shoot a game of pool or play some of our Midwest crowd-pleasers like Cornhole and Giant Jenga. Grab lunch, dinner, or late-night snacks at Smoked Out. Order a flight to taste all your soon-to-be favorites or dive right in with a pint.

We book very talented acts every Friday and Saturday night. Most times on Thursday, too! Typically, no cover charge for any music acts unless there’s a special event that would require tickets. Check out our “On Stage” page for more details.

Kids are welcome! However, when it gets crazy on the weekends and the bands are rockin’ out, it’s our policy that all kids are out of the taproom by 9pm. Let’s face it, adults want to be, well… adults! Tablets are awesome adult babysitters (trust me – we all know) but there’s a time and place for children and it’s not in a brewery taproom after 9pm. Thank you parents!

The Taproom & Smoked Out Cincy

Year round brews, rotating taps and now serving wine!

We serve the beer you think about long after it’s taste has left your palate, longing for the next time you get to savor its beauty. It replays on your tongue like a favorite song you hum all day long. And like music, it’s best shared with friends first, and then perhaps replayed again and again. We can’t wait to share our favorite brews with you. We’re pretty sure they’ll be hits.

If beer isn’t your thing and you looking for a gluten free option, the taproom is now has a limited selection of wine available. Don’t be the one to hold back all your beer drinking buddies, you now have something to enjoy too!

Smoked Out Cincy

Smoked Out Cincy specializes in barbecue meats – smoked right inside their very own kitchen located in the taproom. From chicken and pork to brisket, Smoked Out Cincy has some of the most delicious bites we’ve ever consumed. Their walk-up window will provide you with quick service and a down-home feast that pairs well with our Fretboard brews. If you come and just want a little something-something, then try their bar bites or fries, they’re a Fretboard employee favorite! If the locals like it – then they must be good!
