Cincinnati has a ton of breweries. Some of these are great for families, while others are not so family friendly. One of the city’s most unique ones is Dead Low Brewery. Find out if it is the best brewery for your next family trip to Cincinnati.
Dead Low Brewery looks so different than most breweries. From the moment you walk in the door, you don’t feel like you are in a brewery. It feels more like a seafood restaurant in Florida or on the East Coast rather than a Midwest brewery.
The entire restaurant is bright, airy, and very light. The walls are white with a navy blue accent wall. The tables and chairs are solid black. And they are not overly decorated, like you will find in a lot of breweries. There is also a little space between the tables. The whole vibe of the place feels like you have room to breath. I really liked the atmosphere of this place! It was so refreshing.
The artwork decorating the walls features skeletons and skulls. It is not in a creepy, Halloween kind of way though. The art is very tasteful and clever. This creates an amazing contrast with the light and airy color palette. I loved this fun play on opposites.
The food at Dead Low Brewery is as interesting as the decor. Some items are classic pub grub, while others are new and elevated dishes.
For appetizers, you can choose from chips and salsa, nachos, fried pickles, pretzels, onion rings, fried green tomatoes, spinach and brussels dip, and more.
The menu includes pizza, fish and chips, wings, burgers (including a veggie burger), and a selection of salads. They also have several sandwiches made on naan, including a shrimp po-boy, a philly naan, a falafel naan, and a portabella mushroom naan.
For the kids, the options are pizza, chicken tenders, mac and cheese, and a grilled cheese naan.
We really enjoyed the food we had here. My husband went with wings, while I had a Hawaiian style chicken sandwich. It was very delicious. My son loved his pizza! He loved the one off of the kids’ menu so much that he insisted on getting a bigger one from the main menu too!
This is solid brewery food that is comforting, warming, and fulfilling.

Prices, Location, and Hours
The one thing I wasn’t fond of at Dead Low Brewery was the prices. They seem to be a bit high to me. Appetizers range from $8-17. The pizzas are in the $9-16 category. The soups and salads are all between $6-16.
You can get any of the sandwiches or burgers from $14-18 each. Lastly, the fish and chips are $20. Everything on the kids menu is $9.

Why You’ll Love Dead Low Brewery
Many times, breweries are not very family friendly. They are either really dark, have menus that don’t appeal to kids, or have atmospheres that you don’t want to expose your kids to. But, Dead Low Brewery are none of these things.
If you love pub grub or enjoy breweries, then you will love eating here, even if you have your kids in tow. This really feels more like a traditional restaurant than a brewery. It provides the best of both worlds for parents who love breweries.
Dead Low Brewery is a bright, airy family friendly brewery located in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is a unique and interesting choice from the atmosphere to the food. We really enjoyed eating here, and I think you will too!
