There has been much buzz in the Greater Cincinnati area about our newest craft brewery. Fabled Brew Works opened to much fanfare and rave reviews recently. We had been waiting for this place to open for months since the first time we heard about the design concept and plans for a wide variety of craft brews. We visited for the first time a week ago and were blown away by the vibe, the decor, and especially the brews.
Fabled Brew Works:
This brewery is located in Erlanger just off Dixie Highway, minutes from both I75 and 275. The location is great, and they have both indoor and outdoor seating. It is the perfect place to meet up with friends or family and share a meal and some tasty brews. Our family spent Father’s Day playing games with the kids on their patio all afternoon.
I am not a beer reviewer but I definitely have favorites at Fabled Brew Works after just a couple of visits. I have tried more than I care to admit, and enjoyed each and every one of them in my flights. That being said, I have already decided that “The Witching Sour” (Fruited sour ale with raspberry, blackberry, and vanilla), “Merliner Weisse” (Fruited sour ale with mango, guava, and passionfruit) and “Are you Afraid of the Clark?” (Clark bar dessert stout with peanut butter, chocolate, and caramel) are my favorites for the moment. The first two are fruity sours which I love on a hot summer’s day. I tried several other of their fruity beers and liked all of them. As for the Clark brew – I am always a sucker for a rich chocolatey beer, it is like dessert at the end of a meal.
My husband tried all of the IPA’s and thought they were great. For those who are into Meads they have quite a selection but we are not fans so we did not have any in our flights. My sister in law loves them though! Check out the Fabled Brew Works website for a full list of what is on tap, it’s quite a list! I froze up the first time we went because of all the choices but the bartender was quick to help me figure out what I wanted to add to my flight.
I love all of the nuances and decorating touches at Fabled Brew Works. This place is perfectly curated to make you feel like you fell into a Fairy Tale and are visiting a Medieval village in the middle of Erlanger. Be warned, there are some mythical and eerie characters in this little taproom village. The taproom is truly a work of art, so be sure to pay attention to detail and take it all in!
The place was hopping both times we went but I managed to take some pictures of the inside spaces without patrons due to being pretty tenacious (and spending an entire afternoon there playing games). If the parking lot looks full though don’t let that deter you because the good folks who run this place keep the line moving and make sure there are plenty of spots to sit and sip.
The bathroom “wallpaper” and signage was creative and on theme.
The Food Trucks:
Most days there are food trucks at Fabled Brew Works parked next to the patio. They have had an impressive lineup of food trucks on their schedule. We have tried Taste of Mexico and Indigenous Chef when we were visiting and both were AMAZING. They also sell a few snacks at the counter, or patrons can bring their own food in. You can find out their food truck schedule by following Fabled Brew Works on Facebook.
Fabled Brew Works is located at 331 Kenton Lands Road in Erlanger, KY
