Tune in to Radio Artifact

Playing from radio artifact


We moved into the historic St. Patrick’s Catholic Church facility in August of 2014, and opened the doors with our first beers and first music shows in April 2015. We’ve hosted live music nearly every night since then, and poured thousands of barrels of beer into your thirsty glasses.

Wildfire Pizza Kitchen

Wildfire Pizza Kitchen is a small wood-fired kitchen serving pizzas, salads, appetizers, desserts and more. We strive to continuously focus on making the best food possible while offering a lot of creativity to our menu. Wildfire Pizza Kitchen serves Neo-Neapolitan style pizza. Similar to Italian Neapolitan style, with American influences.

All of our dough is made fresh in house and cold ferments for at least 24 hours. Each pizza is hand tossed and made to order. We focus on fresh, artisanal ingredients. We use a wood-fired oven that was imported from Italy and delivered to our location in Cincinnati. The oven reaches temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees F to enable us to cook pizzas in as little as 90 seconds.

Wildfire offers dine-in and carry-out from the Urban Artifact taproom, as well as catering on-site and off.
