It has come to my attention some beer drinkers in or around Cincinnati have still not heard of Fibonacci Brewing which is crazy because they’ve been around since 2015. Actually, I think this is a travesty. I’ve been to Fibonacci several times and was surprised to see that I hadn’t written about them yet. On the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, I headed down to Mt. Healthy to participate in Fib’s Summer Solstice Celebration. A Celebration that featured live music, barbecue, palm readings, and of course, new brews.
Fibonacci Brewing is located at 1445 Compton Rd. Mt Healthy, OH 45231 in the heart of the west side of Cincinnati in a building that used to be a flower shop. The brewery has a science theme and is decorated with re-purposed laboratory equipment, vintage science posters, a mural, and hop shaped light fixtures.
Today there’s a lot going on at Fibonacci. The brewery/taproom is one of the smaller ones in the city. There’s on and off street parking if you’re driving. They have a nice covered patio in the front and community seats and bar stools inside. If my count is correct they have 8 taps available of their beer. They brew with a 1 bbl system in the basement of the taproom.
In addition to their beer/taproom Fibonacci also features bees, goats, a separate, but next door, bier garden/event space. In every sense of the phrase they are an urban farm and because of it are a one-of-a-kind place in the Cincinnati beer scene.
Fibonacci usually keeps four core beers on tap and fill the rest of the taps with one offs or seasonal releases. Unfortunately, they don’t can or distribute but every once in a while they’ll have specialty bottle releases. The only place to experience their beer is in their taproom. They do serve wine, in addition to their beers. Flights, pints, and growlers are all available.
Like I said, I’ve been to Fibonacci several times. I’ve had a lot of their beers and they don’t disappoint. From my previous visits and my latest one this past week for their Summer Solstice Celebration here are three of my favorite beers from Fibonacci.
3. Compton Cream ale – This beer is delicious and perfect for a sunny day. It’s rose gold in color, creamy and full of strawberries that were infused after fermentation. This isn’t usually a go to style for me but its a must try if they have it on tap. 3.75/5
2. Earth Daisy DIPA – This beer clocks in at 8.9% ABV. It pours an amber color (No haze here!) and features a sweet malty backbone and is loaded with piney hops. 4/5
1.Dummy Tripel is a big Belgian tripel, as they tend to be. This one hovers right around 9% ABV and 25 IBUs. It pours with a bright gold color. It’s definitely big, dense, and has a full mouthfeel with a slight sweetness to it. 4.5/5.
Fibonacci is a great spot to grab a brew and experience something different in Cincinnati. The taproom is very relaxed and all of the staff is very friendly. Many times you can find owners Bob and Betty either behind the bar themselves or running around the taproom keeping busy but always more than willing to share a conversation.
They’re closed Mondays and Tuesdays and hours vary the rest of the week.
Like I said before Fibonacci always has something new going on and for the 50th anniversary of the moon landing they’ve teamed up with Higher Gravity to brew a new beer themed for it.
