Sixteen Bricks is a Cincinnati-based artisan bakery and wholesaler servicing chefs and the discerning. Every loaf is made by hand with quality ingredients, technique, and patience.

Our bakers use natural fermentation processes to give our breads robust flavor and rely on simple, wholesome ingredients. Our breads are made solely with unbleached and unbromated wheat flour, water, sea salt, and sometimes yeast. Unnatural enzymes, conditioners, and extenders never touch our products because they compromise the flavor and nutrition of the bread.

Our most powerful tools are science and grit: the wisdom of experience and the strength of conviction. We believe good dough is more than a list of ingredients; bread is an endless pursuit. We commit to constant improvement. We practice the baker’s craft with integrity and never take shortcuts. Every loaf we create inspires a similar resolve: make the next one better.

People say we’re a band of misfits, and they’re probably right. But at Sixteen Bricks, we play our music loud, give respect to get it, and push hard to pull through. Ask anyone on the floor what the bakery means to them and they will tell you: Sixteen Bricks is family.
