More Good Beer is More Good reports that the number of new breweries in planning continues to rise.

The number of breweries in the planning stages have jumped from 915 at the end of 2011 to more than 1200 as of publication.

Here in Cincinnati, I was pleased to read recently that yet another brewery called Blank Slate had opened their doors recently. They’re a keg only operation so far, but I hope to check out their products soon. Blank Slate joins Mt. Carmel and Rivertown (as well as Sam Adams and Christian Moerlein) on Cincinnati’s impressive list of brewers. We’re no Portland, but there’s no shortage of good beer in Cincinnati, The City That Loves to Drink (I mean Sing).
