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! 😀🍺🐶🍔🍟❤️

3 Points Pop Up Power Hour.

We saw that today 3 Points Urban Brewery was doing another Pop Up Power Hour

3-Points has some really good beers…

And we got to order some more delicious CHX…

And boom! Minutes later, we had lotsa food…

I ordered another 4-piece banty with hush puppies…

Genifer got their mac&cheese…

We also had a bag of wavy fries and a bag of extra hush puppies. I love hush puppies. And we love when 3 Points does their Pop-Up Power Hours. Great beers at cheap prices and some of the most incredible chicken with hush puppies? Dang. What’s not to love about that? 😀🍺🐔🤫🐶❤️

Happy hour in Pendleton.

Just to the north of Jack Casino and just to the east of Over-the-Rhine lies the Pendleton neighborhood of downtown Cincinnati. Genifer noticed on Instagram that the relatively new 3-Point Brewery in Pendleton was having a Pop-Up Happy Hour Wednesday with $2 beers from 5-7pm. So after work this evening, we stopped in Pendleton to finally check out a couple places that were new to us.

We haven’t been to Pendleton since we moved to Northside. Back then all that was there was Nation. Now there are all sorts of new places like Luquis Q barbeque

Across the street is Boomtown Biscuits & Whiskey

And next door to Boomtown is CHX

And next to CHX is 3-Points Urban Brewery…

3-Points is absolutely beautiful inside…

I started with a Sinking Orca Oatmeal Stout

And Genifer tried their Shoal Cincy Stout

Both beers were really good. That little CHX guy kept staring at us…

He reminded us of Oscar with his beady little eyes.

We ordered a small original breaded banty with fries from the bar and just a little while later, we received a text that our banty was ready to be picked up…

And there’s our order…

Our CHX was so good! There were so many fries in that bag. It was like a neverending bag of fries. They just kept regenerating themselves no matter how many we ate. And their dipping sauces were legit too. But the star of the show for me was the hushpuppies. Then again, I love hushpuppies. I also tried their Magic Wand Kettle Sour

And Genifer tried one of their spicy margarita draft cocktails…

Both 3-Point and CHX were awesome. It was a great way to celebrate our anniversary

We can’t wait to come back to 3-Point and CHX. And we also can’t wait to check out Lucius Q and Boomtown. And eat at Nation again. It’s been way too long. Geez… Pendleton is really on the serious upswing! 😀🍺🐔🤫🐶❤️

Nation Kitchen & Bar.

Tonight, we walked up into Pendleton just passed the casino to go celebrate Genifer’s first day at her new job at Nation. It’s been a minute since we were last at Nation, and that’s much too long…

We finally got to try Nation’s fried bologna sammich…

And it was outstanding! Of course, we got some loaded tots to go with our sammich…

The courtyard behind Nation is very pretty.

And I love my little urban alleys…

You really can’t beat Nation. You can’t beat it at all. 🙂
