TGIF.

I met Genifer at Hofner Park after work…

We were planning to eat dinner at Bistro Grace with the gift card Shannon gave us all the way back last Christmas. But when we got there, we both decided we weren’t hungry enough to do dinner at Bistro Grace justice. So we scrapped that idea for now and just had a couple beers at Higher Gravity instead. And while we were there, we stumbled across this beer…

It tastes just like you’re drinking a Cinnabon. Pretty tasty stuff. 😀🍺❤️

Operation Plowshare.

We stopped by our favorite brewery, Urban Artifact this evening after work…

Yesterday, they tapped their Operation Plowshare, a Blackberry Midwest Fruit Tart. It tastes just like the filling from a jelly doughnut. Remember last fall when they gave you the options of having it with or without a sprinkle-covered rim? There weren’t any sprinkles this year but it was every bit as delicious…

We’re going to have to stop back and pick up a couple of four packs…

Great stuff. We love Urban Artifact and their amazing beers. 😀🍩🎃❤️

Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

It was an overcast and gloomy evening but that didn’t stop us from meeting after work at Higher Gravity for another Meet the Brewery

Tonight’s brewery was Platform beer Company from Cleveland…

Higher Gravity had three Platform beers on tap to try. We sampled Platform’s IPA called Paranormal Hoptivity, The Peach Project and Yammy Yammy. They were all really good. The Yammy Yammy was my favorite. They have a taproom in Cleveland as well as Columbus. And they were saying that they would like to open a taproom in Cincinnati. So we’ll have to keep an eye out for that. The fourth beer in our flight was Moozie from Brink Brewing Company just up Hamilton Avenue from us. Also, very good. On the way home, we saw these Halloween Elmo’s in a window…

It was another fun evening of sampling some new beers in Northside. 😀🍺🍻⬆️❤️

Rhinegeist Charitable Suds.

Genifer picked me up from work this evening and we went up to Rhinegeist in Over-the-Rhine for Charitable Suds…

Every Wednesday for 5-8pm, Rhinegeist donates $1 from every draft beer sold in their taproom to a different charitable organization. And they call it Charitable Suds. This week’s organization was Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services were Genifer works in Human Resources…

So we thought we would do our part and have a beer… you know, for charity…

Every time I’ve been in Rhinegeist, I’m always so impressed by the space…

 

Genifer’s co-workers are really nice,and it was a really good time. 😀🍺🍻❤️

Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery

After work this evening I met Genifer at Higher Gravity for another edition of Meet the Brewery. This weeks brewery was Streetside from Cincinnati’s east side. We really enjoyed visiting Streetside a couple months back so we were really excited to get to try a few more of their beers right in our own backyard…

Higher Gravity had four Streetside beers on tap this evening…

All of the Streetside beers were pretty good. But their Glitter Freeze Sour and Key Lime Gose were outstanding. The key lime had vanilla bean added in the brewing process and it made the beer taste just like a slice of key lime pie complete with whipped cream and graham cracker crust. It was pretty terrific…

The guys were on hand from Streetside to talk about their process and answer questions as we sampled both their Key Lime Pie Goes…? and Glitter Freeze…

It’s pretty great to be able to try a choice selection of beers from a different brewery each and every week…

And that’s just one of the reasons we love Higher Gravity. 😀🍺🍻❤️

We had dinner at Melt

We stopped at Higher Gravity for a couple of tasters…

And then we headed home…

It was a really long week. 😀❤️

Urban Artifact’s Squeezebox.

I met Genifer at Northside’s Hoffner Park this evening so we could walk over to Urban Artifact to try their latest creation, Squeezebox Strawberry Sour Bomb

We hadn’t been to Urban Artifact in a minute so we got a flight to try some of the new stuff they had on tap today…

From left to right, we tried Squeezebox Strawberry Sour Bomb, Letterbox Dark Tropical Ale, Peanut Butter Sliderule Chocolate Raspberry Gose and Skep Honey Nut Muffin Ale. Here is everything Urban Artifact had on tap this evening…

All of them were really amazing but Squeezebox was the clear standout. It was like sucking on one of those little strawberry hard candies

Urban Artifact also created four Squeezebox variants in 500ml bomber bottles…

There’s a Chocolate Strawberry Squeezebox, Spicy Margarita Squeezebox, Strawberry Margarita Squeezebox and Lemon Basil Sorbet Squeezebox. Walking home, the door to their production facility was open and we could see all the stacks and stacks of cans…

It was a very pretty evening walking home…

And now our refrigerator has some new friends…

But not for too long. We sat out on our back patio when we got home and shared the lemon basil sorbet Squeezebox. And it was just outstanding! Sooo good. I hope our whole #SPRINGinCINCY can taste like Strawberry Squeezebox…

Have we ever mentioned we love living in Northside? 🙂

Happiest hours.

After work this evening, we stopped by Igby’s for some more happiest hours

Thanks to JJVE for gift card that continually funds our 4EG happiest hours! 🙂
