craft ales off the rails

cincinnati × Over-The-Rhine



Off Track Brewing Company is a neighborhood craft nano-brewery located in the historic Over-The-Rhine Brewery District in Cincinnati. We are just Off the Cincinnati Streetcar Track and the Brewing Heritage Trail.

OTBC was founded by two friends who have been homebrewing together for over twenty years.  From the kitchen to the garage in Anderson Township, the guys now occupy an 1800 square foot garage in OTR and run a 5 barrel steam powered brewing system.

OTBC does not have a public tap room on site.  Our brews are available around the corner at Dunlap Cafe at 1926 Dunlap Street.  Dunlap Cafe is known for its all-day breakfast, burgers, daily lunch and dinner specials, and its full bar and beer garden.  The Cafe is open Monday through Saturday (until 9:00 Thursday through Saturday).

For the brewers this is a part-time endeavor during evenings and weekends.  We will be brewing two batches per month, and keeping a fresh rotation on tap at the Dunlap Cafe.  Brewery tours are available upon request, and please just stop and say hi if our garage doors are open on the Branch Street side.

OTBC's initial offerings will be on the lighter side as we dial in the new system.  You can enjoy our Golden Wheat Ale and American Liberty Cream Ale at the Cafe today.  Our Stark Raving Amber (Red IPA) and Hop The Track (Fresh Wet Local Hop Pale Ale) will be available in a few weeks.  In the Fall we will roll out our Brown-Porter.

Off Track Brewing Company's passion is for brewing better beer.  We hope to achieve this through continuing education, collaboration and experience.  We will see you at the Dunlap Cafe soon!

Please stay tuned and thank you for your interest. Cheers!
