Some things in life are worth waiting for -Danielle Steel

This saying couldn't be any truer about Listermann Brewing. In fact, founders Dan and Sue Listermann worked towards their dream of owning a brewery for nearly 20 years before their dream became a reality. Now, 30 years later, their dream has grown into Listermann Brewing-a favorite bar and grille among Cincinnati, Newport, and Covington residents.

Decades Worth of History

Dan Listermann purchased his first beer making kit in 1973-illegally, he likes to add. After several failed attempts at brewing his own batch of liquid gold, Dan set the bottles aside and spent his time studying engineering. However, his love for beer making quickly returned 15 years later when he, his brother, and their friend brewed a batch together.

This success lead to the incorporation of Listermann MFG. Co, INC in 1991. In 1995, the business moved into their current location. With this expansion, Listermann's Brewery Supply was created. By 2008, they received their brewing license, to which Listermann Brewery Co. was born.

Although it over three decades to reach this milestone accomplishment, Dan, Sue, and everyone else involved with Listermann Brewing wouldn't change it for the world. Like mentioned, some things in life are just well worth the wait.

Virtual Beer Tasting

Now comes the exciting part-your virtual Listermann Brewing beer tasting. Here, you'll find a vast selection of beers on tap. Currently, you'll find a wide selection of imperial stouts, ales, farmhouse style, and more.

Imperial Stouts

On the darker end of the beer spectrum falls the imperial stout. The Scoring Discrepancies and Give Me Something to Bake are two imperial stouts currently offered at Listermann Brewing. The Scoring Discrepancies gives hints of childhood PB&J sandwiches with raspberry and peanut butter flavors.

Those in the mood for a sweeter beer can opt for the Give Me Something to Bake imperial stout. This includes flavors of raisin pie filling, vanilla, cinnamon, and walnuts-all the ingredients needed to make a delicious beer.


Ales are typically lighter in color than imperial stouts and can either be more golden or red in color. Several ales-like the Half Moon Cookie, Chickow!, and Don't Talk Sh*t About Norwood-are some of the ales you'll find on tap.

The Half Moon Cookie is exactly what it sounds like! It's a tasty treat that's brewed with chocolate and vanilla, just like a half moon cookie.


This style of beer is more so a category than a type of beer, so it's a bit broader in what it includes. You can expect farmhouse beer to be flavorful and unique. The Daphne and Angel beers of Listermann Brewing is no exception.

Daphne is brewed with tart cherries, cinnamon, cardamom, and aged in pinot noir barrels for a spiced flavor. Similarly, the Angel beer is brewed with blackberries and aged in a brandy barrel for just as much flavor.
