Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

After dinner at Bistro Grace, we stopped by Higher Gravity for another edition of Meet the Brewery. This week’s brewery was BrewDog USA from over by Columbus by way of Scotland. There were also cheese pairings for each beer supplied by Morsel & Nosh, a new cheese shop/delicatessen coming soon to Northside. Per Morsel & Nosh…

We have chosen a classic Muenster to pair with BrewDog’s 5am Saint Red Ale; the subtle flavor of this mild cheese goes well with the caramel notes of the red ale.

We’ve chosen a Northern France Triple Cream Brie to go with the Jet Black Heart Milk Stout; the rich cream goes well with the cacao and coffee notes of the stout.

The pairing we were the most surprised was the combination of a spicy Wildfire Blue cheese with the Elvis Juice IPA. When tasted alone the Elvis Juice has a forward hoppy/floral note and with the Wildfire Blue cheese the citrus notes really pop.

We’ve never been to a beer and cheese pairing before. It was interesting to taste the beer, taste the cheese and then the beer with the cheese and taste how the flavors of the cheeses accentuated the flavors of the beers. And we found it all very interesting and very tasty. 😀🍺🍻🧀❤️

Dinner at Bistro Grace.

Last Christmas, my sister gave us a gift certificate to Bistro Grace in Northside…

Tonight, I met Genifer at Hoffner Park so we could finally have dinner at Bistro Grace…

We never noticed the lovely detailing on Bistro Grace’s ceiling…

We started with some deviled eggs with mushrooms…

Genifer ordered the Grilled Caesar Salad…

I ordered their Thursday Shrimp Special

Everything was delicious! I had the shrimp special last time we were at Bistro Grace, and it was amazing. This shrimp special was different but every bit as good. We finished our meal with a trio of creme brulee…

Tremendous meal. And we still have enough left to come back next week to share some beer cheese with pretzels, some more deviled eggs and another one of Bistro Grace’s amazing burgers. 😀🥗🍤❤️

Thank you the gift certificate, Shannon! It was delicious!

It’s Skyline time!

It was Skyline time for lunch today! YUM! 😀🌭🍝❤️

Good morning from Northside.

It looks like it’s going to be a grey and overcast morning. 😀☁️❤️

Five years ago tonight…

We saw the best musical we’ve ever seen, Jersey Boys

Best. Show. Ever. It’s hard to believe it hasn’t returned to Cincinnati in five years. 😀🎙️❤️
