Wiedenmann’s fine foods.

We stopped back at Wiedenmann’s fine beers in St. Bernard for lunch today…

We had another one of their delicious German Chocolate Cake Imperial Stouts…

Genifer ordered their Caesar Wrap…

And I had their Wiedie Burger…

Both the wrap and the burger were both really good. The burger was huge for a 1/3lb. We really like Wiedenmann’s beers and now we really their food too. πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸŒ―πŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

BrewDog Cincinnati.

After getting in some morning holiday shopping, this afternoon we headed downtown to Over-the-Rhine’s next-door neighbor, Pendleton to check out the brand new BrewDog Cincinnati taproom

In April 2007, in a godforsaken industrial estate in northeast Scotland, BrewDog came howling into the world. BrewDog has two breweries. The original is in Aberdeen, Scotland and the other is in Columbus, Ohio. The Cincinnati taproom just opened…

Two hours south of our American HQ we opened an 8,500 sq ft beer mecca. With 24 taps of craft beer glory, a mezzanine chock full of games, and a beer school space for everything beer geekery, BrewDog Cincinnati is THE place to experience craft beer in The Queen City.

We’ve tried a few of the BrewDog beers before here and there. BrewDog was a guest at the HIgher Gravity Meet the Brewer on two different occasions

The inside is huuuuge…

We started with a Choco-Libre and a Jet Black Heart

The Choco Libre is a Mexican-spiced hot chocolate infused imperial stout. And Jet Black Heart is a 4.7% milk stout, loaded with oatmeal. Both beers were really outstanding!

We shared their $6 Tuesday burger special…

Terrific burger. I don’t know how someone could take down one of these monsters without any help. And the fries were great too. After finishing, we also tried one of their beer slushies (it was kinda weird), and an outstanding Renegade chocolate and peanut butter buckeye white stout…

And Genifer bought me one share of stock in BrewDog

Now we get 5% off our tab and a whole bunch of other cool benefits. Before we left, I went up to take a peek at BrewDog’s upstairs game area…

BrewDog Beer School…

It’s such an awesome space…

I have a feeling we’ll be coming back to BrewDog a lot. After all, we own part of the bar! πŸ˜€πŸΊπŸΆπŸ”πŸŸβ€οΈ

Downtown details.

It was a really pretty afternoon in downtown Cincinnati. It was a little bit windy but the temperature was pretty nice for the beginning of December. So I ran out to get something to eat this afternoon. I walked over to The Banks. Along the way, I stopped to admire The Skystar Wheel with the Roebling Suspension Bridge in the background…

It’s become a permanent addition to The Banks. We still need to go ride on it. I bet the views are pretty spectacular. I ended up getting this sammich from Burgerfi

It was okay. I also stopped to admire the Rose Lavelle mural on West Freedom Way…

And when I was leaving work, Paul Bown Stadium was all lit up for some reason…

I love all the unique sights in downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€β€οΈ

We love Freddy’s Steakburgers.

We ran out to Finneytown to get some Freddy’s Steakburgers for lunch…

Their steakburgers are so good. They’ve become one of our favorites. We really love them. I also love Genifer for being so patient with me as I take a photo of everything…

It’s what you crave?

For whatever reason, two crave cases of White Castle cheeseburger sliders showed up at the office today around lunchtime…

I hadn’t had White Castle in years and years. Today, I had two little sliders…

They were pretty much exactly how I remember them. And now I can go years and years without having them again. πŸ€’πŸ”β€οΈ

Thursdays are for Whip Classics.

It must be Thursday. We stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, chili dog and some fries…

I still think they have one of the best burgers, if not THE best burger in all of Cincinnati. Best fries too. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸŸβ€οΈ

 

More Fiery Hen.

After work tonight, we stopped back at Fiery Hen on Court Street…

Genifer ordered their burger of the day…

And of course, I had Fiery Hen’s chicken tenders. Again.

This time we got to try Fiery Hen’s banana pudding…

Genifer said her burger was just okay. My chicken tenders were awesome. Again. And the banana pudding was terrific. Banana pudding is sooo good. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŸπŸ”πŸŒβ€οΈ

 

 

Slow down and grill.

We grilled up some burgers this afternoon…

I forgot to take a photo of the finished burgers. But they were delicious. Everything always tastes so good when it comes off the grill.

Later, we walked down to Tickle Pickle for milkshakes…

Genifer tried their vegan cookies and cream milkshake made with coconut milk instead of dairy. And it was really,Β really good. Rather hilariously, I just got a regular old vanilla milkshake. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸ¦β€οΈ

It must be Thursday.

After work this evening, we stopped at Queen City Radio for a Whip Classic burger, a cheese coney, and some fries. We think QCR has some of the best fries around…

On our way home, we checked in on the OscarCams to find Oscar sitting up on the arm of our sofa waiting patiently for us to get home…

What a silly head. πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­πŸŸπŸ“·πŸΎβ€οΈ

Slow down and grill.

And look at all those beautiful, out-of-focus dogs…

Ohmigosh. Why does everything taste sooo good when it comes off the grill? πŸ˜€πŸ”πŸŒ­β€οΈ
