The Greater Cincinnati Independents are having Restaurant Week
again and it’s right around the corner.

Greater Cincinnati has a new brewpub – and its not from a place you might expect. Vito’s Cafe in Ft. Thomas has just announced their in-house brewery operation, Red Ear Brewing Company.

Brewmaster Matt Wehmeyer, son of owners Mary and Vito Ciepiel’s is starting out with Endless Summer Ale, a seasonal beer that will give way in autumn to what Matt describes as “something more bold.”
