A venerable member of the Greater Cincinnati craft brewing scene is closing its doors and the change will affect two communities.
Quarter Barrel Brewery & Pub announced via social media on Thursday that it was closing after eight years of operation.
The brewery and eatery got its start in the Oxford community in 2010, before making a recent expansion to Hamilton in 2018. The original Oxford brewpub is located at 107 E. Church St., and the new location is at 103 Main St. in Hamilton.
The owners thanked all their followers and patrons for their eight years of support in their post. While they did not specifically say both locations were to be closed, industry sources confirmed to Cincy Weekend that both spots were due to be closed.
The owners are commented back to some followers who asked if they could buy the brewing equipment, asking the patrons to email the brewery for more information.
Officials with the CORE Hamilton redevelopment agency later confirmed that both locations would be closing.
Quarter Barrel was know for its farm-to-table menu, lavosh breads, and many Belgian-styled beers.
The brewery did not respond to calls or email for comment.
Over the past few years, Greater Cincinnati has seen a wealth of brewery openings, and few of those have closed. Those other closures include Blank Slate, Ei8ht Ball, and Tap & Screw.
CincyWeekend will update this story as more information becomes available.
