CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati is returning to its beer-making roots. 

Like much of the country, more microbrews are popping up and existing breweries are expanding to meet the growing demand.

Listermann is the most recent microbrewery to announce plans to expand.  

The Dana Avenue brewery, which opened its taproom in 2008, received a 6-figure loan from the Hamilton County Business Center to invest in new restrooms, a bigger tasting room and more fermenters.

Rhinegeist is also undergoing a $6.5 million dollar expansion that will increase production with the help of a state tax credit.

In February 2014, Samuel Adams announced plans for a $5.8 million dollar renovation. Larger beer tanks and a new storage building are among the improvements.

In 2013 craft beer accounted for almost 8% of the entire U.S. beer market.
