Brink Brewing’s 2nd anniversary.

This afternoon we hopped on the Metro 17 bus to head up into College Hill…

It was Brink Brewing‘s 2nd-anniversary party

It was pretty busy. A lot of people must like Brink as much as we do…

They had a lot of great beers on tap for their birthday party. We had Mint Oreo Moozie Milk Stout and Business Meeting Oatmeal Stout with raspberry and vanilla…

And we had some lunch from Stellar Street Eats

And there was even some birthday cake!

Happy birthday, Brink! Thanks for 2 great years and here’s to many more to come!
😀🍺🎂❤️

We love steakburgers & spicy beers.

This afternoon we went back to Freddy’s to have steakburgers for lunch…

And afterwards, we stopped Brink Brewing Company to try their Kickin’ Wing – Mango Habanero IPA

I got my beer in a collector local artist glass that we got to take home with us and we also ordered a little tin of bourbon BBQ peanuts…

The Kickin’ Wing – Mango Habanero IPA was outstanding. It had just the right amount of heat and the sweetness of the mango perfectly offset the bitterness of the hops. It was right up there as one of the best beers I think I’ve had. 😀🍔🍺❤️

A flight at Brink.

After lunch at Freddy’s, we stopped at Brink Brewing in College Hill for a flight…

Brink has some really good beers. And Brink had a food truck out in their parking lot, Taco Oso. They had some really interesting sounding tacos. The one that stood out to me was a Mexican BLT taco…

But we were so full from lunch that we couldn’t even think about eating anything else. We’ll have to keep an eye out for Taco Oso in the future. 😀🍺🐻❤️

UPDATE: When we got home, there was a Zipcar parked right in front of our house…

JJVE used one when we were up in Michigan. They said Zipcar is really big out in Boston. I guess Zipcar is much more popular in places other than Cincinnati. Because we haven’t seen a Zipcar around Cincinnati in forever.

Pause for paws.

Oscar had a vet appointment this morning. He got his next allergy shot. He was a very brave little guy. And then Genifer said he crashed out for the rest of the afternoon…

Taken with Instagram. 😀🐾❤️

Sunday Funday.

Yesterday morning, we took Mack to the vet for his ears. He’s fine but we have to take him back next Thursday to his ears flushed. Poor guy. He’ll be okay. But he’s an absolute wreck in the car. He just stands in the back seat and drools everywhere. It’s pretty gross. But after his vet appointment, we ventured into an area we’ve never been to before looking for a Dunkin Donuts for coffee. What we ending up stumbling upon was an area called Finneytown that neither of us had been to before. This afternoon we went back over to Finneytown to have lunch at a Buffalo Wings & Rings we found…

It was really good. Their wings were outstanding and their onion rings were pretty okay. But my favorite part of lunch was starting with an order of mini corn dogs. They were so good. After lunch, we stopped in College Hill to have a beer at Brink Brewing

We had a couple of beers while watched Colombia knock Poland out of the World Cup and played a best out of five in Sorry! Genifer then sank my Battleship and we played a bunch of Uno. It was a really fun Sunday Funday. 😀🐔🍺❤️

Pause for paws.

This morning we took Oscar to VCA College Hill to get his shots updated…

He gets so excited about riding in the car but that excitement dies just as soon as I try to get a photo of him being all excited to be in the car…

He got his shots updated and we were back on our way home…

He’s such a cutie face. 😀🐾❤️

Pause for paws.

Before work this morning, we took Oscar to his new groomers to get his haircut…

This is our second time taking him to VCA College Hill Animal Hospital

And Genifer picked him up this afternoon…

He looks so handsome! They do such a nice job with him. Just look at how handsome he looks! Our handsome little guy. 😀🐾✂️❤️

Brink Brewing Co.

This afternoon we rode the 17 bus up Hamilton Avenue into College Hill to check out the new Brink Brewing Company… 

We got a flight and headed outside to Brink’s awesome back patio…

We tried their Debbie Jean Blonde Ale, Buona Sarah Saison, Even Flow Brink Berry Wheat, Moozie Milk Stout, Peach Cobbler Moozie Milk Stout and not pictured was the award-winning Brink English Brown Ale…

I really like Brink’s logo…

The Peach Cobbler Moozie Milk Stout was outstanding…

Piggin-N-Grinnin BBQ was serving up BBQ out on Brink’s patio as well…

I got the brisket sammich, and we shared some mac and cheese and Grippos BBQ chips…

And Genifer got a pulled pork sammich…

It was some really delicious BBQ! And some delicious beers. We really enjoyed the Even Flow Brink Berry Wheat…

GIANT SCRABBLE!

It was a bunch of fun hanging out at Brink. And it was so easy just to hop on the bus and we were there in no time. We’ll definitely be back very soon! 🙂
