“Now pouring daily, get your beer”

If you like beer you'll freakin' love HalfCut. It's one part bar, one part growler station, and it's awesome.

HalfCut offers a huge beer selection, many even local brews... all craft brews. The prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is laid back and super cool.

Whether you need a growler refill of your favorite craft brew or want to try a flight of new beers, HalfCut is the place for you.

Halfcut is great! A walkup window where you can snag a cheap growler fill of your favorite local beer? Awesome. The staff know their stuff, so if you want to try something new but can't decide, they're more than ready to help you out.

The To-Go window is THE BEST place to pick up beer in OTR. You can either get create your own six pack (they have about 25 craft beers to choose from) or fill up a growler. Really cool spot!

Big fan of Half Cut. Quick, easy, and a pretty cheap spot to grab some of Cincys finest local brews along with some tasty national beers. The service is great and the employees are more than happy to give you as much info on the beer as possible. My biggest qualm is that it seems to focus on mainly IPAs and wheat beers, why those are obviously delicious choices, a few times I've gone looking for some stouts but had to make a last second decision change.

HalfCut is really great. Don't expect anything overly rare, but that's a good thing, I think. What HalfCut does well is showoff Cincinnati's burgeoning craft beer scene, and they unabashedly feature many local brews. The service can't be beat, too. Everyone was very friendly. Furthermore, their prices are great. I was able to get a growler fill for $7. Definitely worth anyone's time.

Halfcut is quickly becoming a religious routine for me and it goes like this: First: Get out of work on Friday and B-line it to Gomez Tacos (right next door) where I get a turtle with Gomez and Salsa Verdes. Next: walk around the corner and enter Halfcut where I'm immediately at ease in the chill, standing-room atmosphere with a mix of ages drinking delicious (and ever-changing) beer without appearing too pretentious. Definitely recommend grabbing a flight and having a quick convo with a bar tender about it. Finally: enjoy DELICIOUS gomez with a crafty beer and good looking people.

Halfcut is quickly becoming one of my favorite bars in OTR. The service is as awesome as the beer, and I really like the laid-back vibe of the place. Also where else can you get both beer and tacos from a walk-up window!?

Couldn't agree more with the above comments! This place was desperately needed in OTR and now we have it! Finally growlers feel like a practical idea!

Awesome variety of craft beers and growler fill-up. The space itself is fairly small so if it's packed you can swing through the outside window to get your growler filled. Gomez Salsa is combined with this building so you can order unreal food from Gomez and dine in HalfCut. Tuesday's are the best ("Taco Tuesday") as you get two tacos from Gomez and a craft brew from HalfCut for $10. HalfCut also offers the option to rent their space for private events.

You know, their beer offerings sometimes disappoint, but I'm glad this place is here. It's such a nice place to chill. And eat Gomez at.
