Rhinegeist on Spring Grove?

We took a different way home from work this evening. We went home up Spring Grove Avenue and we passed by this huge new building in Camp Washington just around the corner from Northside…

It must be a Rhinegeist brewing or canning facility. I wonder if they’re going to put a taproom in there as well? I guess we’ll have to wait and see… 😀👻❤️

A Saturday afternoon in OtR.

This afternoon we caught an Uber down into Over-the-Rhine. Our friend Chris just had a birthday and his wife, Tayler was throwing him a bar-hopping surprise party that started at Rhinegeist

Decisions, decisions…

We got down to Rehinegeist a little bit early so we could finally check out their rooftop…

The Rhinegeist rooftop patio…

It’s super nice up there. But we went back downstairs to get some food. Rhinegiest’s taproom is on something like the third or fourth floor of the building. On the first floor is Sartre, the hottest restaurant & bar according to Zagat. Two things on a side note, the hottest restaurant and bar just sounds really uncomfortable and sweaty. And Zagat also said Steak ‘n Shake had the #1 rated milkshake. Steak ‘n Shake. So I think you should really take their recommendations with a grain of salt. But I digress, Sartre. In addition to having a restaurant and bar on the first floor, Sartre also has a kiosk in Rhinegeist’s taproom that I should have taken a photo of but didn’t. They take your order at the kiosk and Sartre sends your food up to the taproom in oversized banking tubes, and they call it tube food. That’s awesome! And I’m so mad that I didn’t take any photos of the kiosk or the tubes. But Genifer ordered a pretzel and I got a burger. And here it is…

And that was one really terrific burger…

So, sooo good. Rhinegeist really fills up on a Saturday afternoon…

On May 15th, National Dinosaur Day was Jurassic Geist at the Rhinegiest Taproom…

According to a tweet I saw in celebration of World Dinosaur Day, Cincy Museum Center teamed with Rhinegeist to display their 50-foot Galeamopus dinosaur in public for the first time! This YouTube video shows the process of putting together a 150-million-year-old dinosaur! We’ll definitely have to get back down to Rhinegeist to see the dinosaur and get some photos of tube food…

From Rhinegeist, we walked over to Taft’s Ale House

Then we swung through Sundry and Vice before heading to Mecca OtR

Chunkers!

From there, we made our way to 16-bit

And they had Slush Puppie drinks…

And then we stopped into Longfellow

And then it was onto Rhinehaus to watch the end of FC Cincinnati’s 4-1 loss away to Charlotte Independence. Everyone headed to 4EG’s newest bar, Rosedale. Rosedale was stupid packed. And somewhere between point A and point B, we got separated from our group. We tried to track them down but to no avail. So we hopped in an Uber and headed back to Northside where we stopped at Higher Gravity for a nightcap. It was a really fun afternoon and evening of bar hopping in Over-the-Rhine. 😀🍺🍻🥃🍸🍹❤️

 

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. 😀🍺🍻❤️

Hustle Home Run Derby.

On this rainy Thursday evening, we went up into Over-the-Rhine to Rhinegeist

They were hosting their Hustle Home Run Derby for a Cause…

unnamed

It was the launch of Rhinegeist’s Hustle Rye Pale Ale, and wiffle ball home run derby! A $5 donation got participants 10 swings and the chance to win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. All proceeds benefit Bow Tie Cause and Butler County Challenger Baseball

Prizes included a limited edition Rhinegeist-branded bat from Louisville Slugger, free tickets to the Galloping Pig annual polo event and Rhinegeist merch. There were also ballpark style hot dogs provided by Dutch’s Larder…

With the launch of Rhinegeist’s Hustle Rye Pale Ale, you got to take home a Hustle pint glass for $1 with the purchase of a Hustle Rye Pale Ale…

I think I’ve just found a brand new favorite pint glass for Reds baseball season!

And then it was finally my turn…

I didn’t hit any home runs. I made some good contact but had a couple of swings and misses too. Still, it was a blast of an evening. Bring on baseball season! 🙂

The Deskey holiday party.

Tonight was Deskey’s holiday party at Rhinegeist in Over-the-Rhine. We walked up to Washington Park to check out December’s edition of The City Flea before the party got underway. On our way walking up to Washington Park, we were passed by the Holiday Bright Ride

It was ridiculous just how many people were at Washington Park for The City Flea and the lighting of the Washington Park holiday tree. It was hard to even move. So we packed it in pretty quickly, and grabbed an Uber from in front of Music Hall up Elm Street to Rhinegeist

There was a big cornhole tournament…

We didn’t compete. We aren’t very good at cornhole. At all. And just like at work, I’m the wearer of many hats…

We were pretty blown away with just how big Rhingeist was inside…

It was a great party. We were really glad we went. 🙂
