A busy Tuesday.

Good morning from Northside. I had a big day planned on my last day before I started my new job tomorrow…

This morning we took Oscar to get his haircut before our epic road trip next week…

After dropping off Oscar, I dropped off Genifer at work before heading downtown to drop off my key fob at Deskey. I wasn’t going to be needing that anymore…

I dropped off my fob. Ran over to Rookwood Commons to go to Old Navy. I wanted a new navy polo shirt. I ended up finding one and a bunch of other stuff for our road trip. From there, I went to the grocery store to get dog food and cat litter and other odds and ends since I won’t be able just to walk around the corner to CVS or the hardware store anymore. On my way home, I picked up a couple of McDonald’s Filet O’Fish for lunch. And while I was eating my fish, I ordered us two general admission tickets for the upcoming USMNT match versus Venezuela at Nippert Stadium…

I went to go pick-up Oscar from the groomers but he wasn’t quite ready yet. I had about a half hour to kill so I went to check out Maverick’s Comics & Cards in Finneytown…

And then it was time to pick up Oscar…

He looks so handsome. At Maverick’s, I found a bunch of Usagi Yojimbo back issues…

Later, I went to pickup Genifer from work, and on the way home, we stopped for a beer and a fried bologna sammich with some loaded cheese fries…

Just today, Listermann released a collaboration Bottle Logic Brewing called Scoring Discrepancies. It was a with Imperial Stout with peanut butter and raspberry…

It was a lot of running around. But I really feel like I got a lot accomplished today. 😀❤️

Chickowsvidanya.

We stopped into Higher Gravity to try Listermann Brewing’s Chickowsvidanya

It’s a bourbon barrel aged imperial dark ale collaboration with Destihl Brewery. It was really good. And we also tried Listermann’s Chickowsvidanya: Coffee, Cinnamon, and Vanilla. It’s also a bourbon barrel aged imperial dark ale but with coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla added…

And that one was outstanding. It might have been one of the best beers I’ve ever had. It wasn’t too boozy but it had just the perfect amount of coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla flavor, all working exquisitely together. It’s a real shame it was $12 a bottle or I would have started stockpiling them. But we’re very happy that we got to try both of them before they disappeared. We love Listermann’s beers. 😀🍺❤️

Thursday evening at Listermann.

After work this evening, we stopped at Listermann Brewing Company’s taproom across the street from Xavier’s campus…

We’ve been to Listermann before. We pre-gamed there before one of the very first FC|C preseason matches against Xavier, and we loved going to their Volksfest. Earlier in the week, we saw on their Instagram that they had a Mexican Chocolate Chickow on tap that sounded very intriguing. And then we saw that they also had a Mexican Chocolate Stout on tap as well called Pastel Con Amigos. But when we got to the taproom, they were both already gone. But there were a lot of other interesting sounding beers on tap…

We decided to start with a flight…

Our first flight…

Father Kyle’s Cinnamon Stout was really good. As was Satisfied? Their Cookie Wizard had glitter in it. You can sort of see it here…

There it is…

And here’s our second flight…

In my opinion, Nutcase is one of Listermann’s best beers. Sooo peanut buttery! Seen and noted that Thursday night is also Wing Night in the taproom…

We didn’t partake but we ordered some other stuff from Renegade Grille

We ordered some deep fried mac ‘n cheese balls, loaded cheese fries and a fried bologna sammich to share…

The fried bologna sammich and loaded fries were out of this world…

It was a fun Thursday evening. We can’t wait to come back for another fried bologna sammich and some more incredible beers. 😀🍺❤️

Volksfest.

After running some errands this afternoon, we stopped at Listermann Brewing Company to check out this year’s Volksfest. You might remember last summer we managed to pull ourselves away from all the festivities of All-star weekend to check out Volksfest. And it was a lot of fun. It’s basically a summer beer festival serving only local beer from local breweries, and it was back…

On a side note, we didn’t realize that Listermann was so close to our new house, not walking distance or anything. But a pretty short car ride. We really need to check out some of their weekly specials…

Here’s the beer list for the two-day festival…

Everything with an X next to it is what was on tap while we were there.
