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, and also holds regular festivals and events. Check out the event schedule and sign up for our online newsletter.

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.

Off Track Brewing Company's passion is for brewing better beer with fresh ingredients, and serving them to our neighbors at affordable prices.  We will see you at the Dunlap Cafe soon!

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