Urban Artifact is a craft brewery with a taproom, full bar, and live music venue. Please check out the Events page for all of the great things lined up.

Our taproom is built in the lower level of the historic St Patrick’s church in Northside Cincinnati, Ohio. The brewery is located in the old church gymnasium building just behind the church. Our taproom is big enough to hold several hundred people, and the courtyard between the buildings is one of the best places in the city to sit outside with a beer. We welcome you to bring your party to the taproom. All of the music events are all-ages and no cover.

Regular hours:

Monday – Wednesday: 4pm – 12am
Thursday: 4pm – 1am
Friday: 4pm – 2:00am
Saturday: 12pm -2:00am
Sunday: 12pm – 12am

Send a note to Scott or Kelly to organize an event. Send a note to us if you’re interested in performing. Send a note to Scotty if you’re interested in seeing our beer in your favorite watering hole.

We’re working on a future expansion for the upstairs church sanctuary and to provide food in the taproom. You’re always welcome to bring your own food, or order delivery from any of the fantastic restaurants that serve Northside.


The brewing team likes giving tours upon request. Send a note to Scotty with your group info, and we’ll do our best to accommodate.


You can find our delicious tart and wild beers in many different Cincinnati area bars and restaurants. Be sure to ask if you don’t see our tap handles!

Visiting the Taproom?

Our location is easy to get to:
We’re right in the middle of Northside, so it’s a quick drive from Downtown, Clifton, College Hill, Winton Place, and Westwood, and very near the Colerain Ave exit on I-74. The #19 bus stops right out front or the #15 runs a block away on Hamilton Ave.
Look at all of that parking!
