Greater Cincinnati Living is back with the first episode of the New Year! This episode takes us to downtown Montgomery to MPH (Montgomery Public House) where we camped out in a heated tent outside and enjoyed some pizza, brews and great conversation with two of the owners!
My sister, Maggie Curtis, and I had the pleasure of meeting with Jim and Tony to talk about what inspired them about the location, the co-ownership, the brewing, and the pizza.
They talk about finding the perfect space (formerly Pomodori’s) first, and then finding what they wanted to do. They decided to create an environment where folks could hang, drink some of their favorites, and enjoy the wood fired pizzas (trust us, they are delicious).
Among a variety of in-house homemade wood-fired pizzas is a long list of beer choices. The U.S. Beer Open (annual event across the nation) has named MPH’s very own Hefeweizen third place winner in its category (with over 4,000 other competitors) – so you’ll have to try it! They are also partnered with Left Hand Brewing – so there are options for all beer drinkers!
Another cool feature about MPH is that they are giving back to the local community through their Give Back Tuesday program. They’ve partnered with local charities like Operation Giveback, Sycamore Bridges, Sycamore Sports teams, Hoxworth Blood Center and Breast Cancer Awareness to help support these efforts.
The co-owners together have 6 children in the Sycamore school district, with a few of their kids working at the restaurant, and a few Sycamore teachers as well!
If you’re looking to support a business who supports our community, while enjoying good eats and great beer, this will definitely be a spot you’ll want to try out!
