We stopped in on Sunday afternoon. It smelled badly of cigarette smoke inside. We went to sit outside. We waited 15 minutes, no one waited on us, we left without being served. They appeared to have a number of taps. On the other hand, we ended up going down the street to the Hofbrauhaus Newport. Hofbrauhaus food was good, Hofbrauhaus service was great, beer selection limited, but good. We would not go back to the Beer Sellar.

The Beer Sellar is a beer bar on a barge docked in front of the Newport Aquarium and shops. I've been there a couple times in my travels to the Queen City, and I've got mixed feelings about the place.

On the positive side, they have 60 taps. Many good US, Belgian and a few decent German beers are available. There's a very cool view of downtown Cincinnati from the barge. There is a boat that ferries fans to and from football and baseball games. All these things are fine.

On the down side, they've got 60 taps and too many don't sell. I'd recommend asking for a sample before ordering, because both my friend and I ordered beers that were well past prime, or served through lines that needed maintenance. The game day pizza we had wasn't very good. Service was friendly, but a little scatterbrained at times.

The Beer Sellar is a little disappointing as a beer bar, because it has the potential to be something really good. I don't think they sell enough of their selection to justify that many taps. At the very least, they need to improve the line maintenance.
