Well.. a couple of days gives you multiple chances.
Rockbottom brewery: They have 6 self brewed beers on draft plus a special. happy hour 3-6pm with a pint for $2ish and mugs 2.30. I recommend the wheat and their 'Tallstacks'. If the brewer, Mitch, is around you might be able to have a homebrew talk! Food is decent.
Not sure if Grammer's is open again: You should ask
Arnolds on 8th street: small original pub in Cinci with a bunch of beers.
If you are into cocktails there are places for that: Rightous Room on Main or Nada; or next to Fountain Square: Havana Martini Club for martinis and salsa dancing.
In clifton there is Fries a pretty cool pub with microbrews.
Check the Comet in Northside for its specials (the have Bells Hopslam!)
You should get a ride to Hydepark and hit Arthur's for burgers and drafts!
There are a bunch of underground style places in Over the Rhine
Well... there is Kentucky across the river with some pubs and tons of people... There is the Hofbrauhaus: Being from Germany, I can say that their beer is ok, the food is good but very pricy, and you should go there in the afternoon. In the evening you will only see drunk folks dancing on the tables thinking this would be german 'gemuetlichkeit'.
ugh... i need a beer!
