Volksfest.

After running some errands this afternoon, we stopped at Listermann Brewing Company to check out this year’s Volksfest. You might remember last summer we managed to pull ourselves away from all the festivities of All-star weekend to check out Volksfest. And it was a lot of fun. It’s basically a summer beer festival serving only local beer from local breweries, and it was back…

On a side note, we didn’t realize that Listermann was so close to our new house, not walking distance or anything. But a pretty short car ride. We really need to check out some of their weekly specials…

Here’s the beer list for the two-day festival…

Everything with an X next to it is what was on tap while we were there.

We got to taste a lot of new beers. We got to try…

Blank Slate Out and About Gose
Tap & Screw Witty Friar Hefe
Rhinegeist Chester Cherry Saisson
Mt. Carmel Hibiscus Blue Blonde Ale
Triple Digit Cortex Imperial Coffee Stout
Mad Tree BA Rubus Cacao Stout aged in wine/bourbon barrels

Braxton Summertrip Berliner Weiss with passionfruit

Genifer’s favorite was the Braxton Summertrip. Mine was the Rhinegeist Chester.
Good stuff. Volksfest was really a lot of fun. 🙂

Constructing Cincinnati.

I walked over to Sycamore Place to pick up a package that got shipped to our old home by mistake. And I couldn’t help but notice that the new parking garage at the corner of Sycamore and Seventh Streets was now opening for public parking…

It’s a whole lot different than what it used to look like, from the old garage to the construction of this new garage. It’s a really big improvement. I wonder when they are going to start construction of the apartments atop this new parking garage? 🙂
