Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

This evening we walked over to Urban Artifact to try their Vanilla Chariot Cherry Gose variant and their new Owler Tart Vanilla Brown

Turns out, they had just run out of the Vanilla Chariot the night before. But the Owler was very, very good. On the way home, we stopped by Higher Gravity for another of their Thursday night Meet the Brewery events featuring Covington’s Braxton Brewing Company and Braxton Labs in Newport. Higher Gravity was featuring four Braxton beers on tap…

They had Braxton’s Blown Gasket Porter and three beers from their Braxton Labs: New England IPA #002, Sweet Potato Casserole and Belgian Blonde with Chamomile. After the taster, we had a Braxton Blown Gasket so we could take home the sweet Braxton Pint Glass and some sweet Braxton shades…

Just another fun Thursday evening in Northside. 😀🍺❤️

Sunday Funday.

This afternoon we dodged the raindrops and walked down to Higher Gravity to watch FC Cincinnati’s second to last match of the regular season away to Ottawa Fury and that other “professional” football team from Cincinnati was playing too…

Genifer’s mom, Geri has been staying with us while she closes on her new house…

FC Cincinnati lost to Ottawa 4-0. Now they sit precariously in the final playoff spot with one match remaining. After the soccer match, we went home to watch our Dallas Cowboys take on the Green Bay Packers. And we got some delicious NYPD Pizza for the late afternoon game…

Isn’t it amazing how all pizza is so similar yet so completely different at the same time?Oh. And the Cowboys lost on the final drive of the game, 35-31. It was another really fun day in Northside if you get past all the losing. 😀🍺🍕🤠🏈😕❤️

Northside Saturday.

This afternoon we went back over to the new Taft’s Brewporium for lunch…

Garlic knots, 10″ pepperoni pizza, loaded tots and some shuffleboard…

More of the Brewporium was opened up this time, their space is huge…

Later, we met some new friends at Higher Gravity and caught the second half of the Michigan game. And then we walked down to Second Place for FC Cincinnati away match to St. Louis. Michigan finally pulled away from Purdue, and the FC|C match ended in a 2-2 draw. It was another really fun Saturday in Northside. 😀⬆️❤️

TGIF.

I met Genifer at Hoffner Park after work…

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. 😀❤️

Higher Gravity: Meet the Brewery.

After work, I met Genfier at Hoffner Park…

So we could go to Higher Gravity...

They were having a 50 West tap takeover this evening…

And 50 West brewers were on hand to answer any questions…

It was pretty great to get to try some different 50 West beers right in our backyard. We really like Higher Gravity a lot. It’s one of our favorite spots in Northside. 😀🍺🍻❤️

FC Cincinnati x Higher Gravity.

We walked down to Higher Gravity this evening to watch FC Cincinnati play away to rival, Louisville City FC. And where the beers were great, the match was not…

FC Cincinnati lost 5-0 to Louisville City FC. I’d like to think that FC|C was caught looking ahead to Tuesday’s HUGE US Open Cup semi-final match against New York Red Bulls at Nippert Stadium, and just took their eye off the ball during this match. Hopefully, the USOC match on Tuesday will be much, much more competitive. 😬⚽️❤️

Higher Gravity Bar and Bottle Shop.

Today was Higher Gravity Bar and Bottle Shop‘s official grand opening…

We stopped in to check it out a couple of Friday’s ago and stopped in for the second half of FC|C’s big US Open Cup win over Miami FC

It looked like we were going to be on the local evening news…

And we were right. They great doing guest flights of beers for $5 from local breweries. This was the flight from our beloved Urban Artifact including UA’s Fire Iron, Keypunch and Flash Lamp. Somehow, we missed Fire Iron at Urban Artifact. It was outstanding…

Chef Josh from Django Western Taco was out back slinging tacos…

And we shared a steak quesadilla!

Higher Gravity is a wonderful addition to our Northside neighborhood. 😀🍺🍻❤️

USOC17: FC Cincinnati watch parties.

This evening FC Cincinnati played away to Miami FC in the quarter-finals of the 2017 US Open Cup. And there were numerous watch parties around the city and Northside was no exception. We headed down to Second Place to meet up with our friend JJ and one of her friends. We arrived about a half hour before the match and Second Place was already packed. There weren’t any open seats at the bar, in fact, there weren’t any open seats to be found in the whole place. It was standing room only…

And as the match got underway, it kept getting more and more crowded…

With the match still 0-0 at halftime, we decided to break camp and watch the second half just up the block at Higher Gravity. We made it just before it started pouring…

We managed to actually find a seat at Higher Gravity, and watch FC|C knock Miami FC out of the US Open Cup by the final score of 1-0…

Can you believe it? Our FC Cincinnati is moving on to the 2017 US Open Cup semi-finals! What an incredible night! 😀⚽️🏆❤️

Summer Hours: Higher Gravity Northside.

I actually had a Summer Hours where it didn’t rain. So we walked down to check out Higher Gravity Crafthaus, the new bar/craft beer & wine store in Northside…

Higher Gravity has 14 beers on tap. And you can check out their current draft list lineup on Untappd

Higher Gravity also has over 400 cans and bottles on-shelf and in their cooler…

Their fully stocked walk-in cooler…

I had a Keypunch from Urban Artifact and Genifer had a taster of Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales Isla Estraña Saison Farmhouse Ale…

And we shared a Short’s Exeter sour with strawberry and lemon…

And a we had a couple of tasters of Streetside Brewery Little Balls of Blue and a Sumatra Mountain Brown from Founders

Higher Gravity is such a cool place. It’s like a having a little Party Source just down the street from us. Northside just keeps getting better and better. 😀🥃❤️
