Good Beer and Good Vibes Flowing at Third Eye

When traveling on I-75 between exits 15 and 16, look west and you’ll see one of the newest and most thriving of the nearly 70 breweries in the Cincinnati area: Third Eye Brewing Company.

How it got to this point is just as mind-bending as some of their experimental beer creations. The idea had been conceptualized for over 20 years, but once the official paperwork was submitted in 2017, the ingredients needed for a successful venture seemed to slowly blend like a fresh batch in one of Third Eye’s fermenters. Finding the right location, head brewer, and chef were godsends that two of the co-owners, Tom Collins and Tom Schaefer, attribute to serendipity./ Article and photos by: Brendan Hader/ Published 7.23.21
