Fort Thomas could be home to a new family friendly taproom and mixed-bottle shop if all goes according to plan.
The Fort Thomas Planning Commission will set a public hearing date tonight, June 16, for review of a Stage One Development plan for the business that would be located at 1136 South Fort Thomas Avenue.
At this point, details are still being worked out for the new taproom and bottle shop, The Post, but owner Lindsay King Keogh said the establishment would be a "family friendly taproom with a dedicated kids area, wide open concept and a casual, pressure-free environment."
The front of the building would house the bottle shop. Customers could mix and match six-packs and growlers for sale in the shop. The taproom will feature local taps.

While Keogh and her business partners have experience in the brewing industry, the plan for now is to feature local taps. It is the location and an opportunity to bring something new to the community that attracted her to the location, she said.
"We have a passion for community spaces, and we know this will be a great addition to our community," she said, adding that she chose the name, The Post, as a tribute to Fort Thomas military history.
Also on the slate for consideration by the Design Review Board of Fort Thomas is a hearing to review a Certificate of Appropriateness application for exterior modifications for the property. Keough and KingBrew LLC were 2021 Grow Grant recipients from the City of Fort Thomas.
That hearing and others will be heard on Thursday, June 24, at 6:00 p.m. at the Mess Hall. Currently, the building is owned by Dan Gorman, and Brothers Electric is a tenant.
The Planning Commission business meeting Wednesday, June 16, is at 6:30 pm. and open to the public. The commission meets at the Fort Thomas Community Center, 801 Cochran Avenue. At the business meeting, commissioners will set a future date for the public hearing.
