Das boot night.

Tonight just happened to be Das Boot night at Higher Gravity with hefeweizen from Weihenstephan, the world’s oldest brewery…

It was a pretty good hefe. And we got to take home our boots! We also got to try the new Braxton & Graeters Pumpkin Pie collaboration… 

It was really good. Very pumpkiny. But it’s still just a little bit too early for me to be drinking pumpkin beers. As soon as it starts to feel more like fall outside, it’s on. I also saw this beer from Streetside that sounded interesting but we didn’t try it…

Maybe next time. However, we did bring this guy home this guy…

it was another fun Thursday night at Higher Gravity in Northside. 😀🍺👢🎃🌞❤️

Northside Saturday.

We walked down to Melt for lunch again this afternoon…

Genifer had the Rachel. Again. In our opinion, it’s one of the best sammiches in all of Cincinnati, if not the whole world. I always get the Rachel as well. Sometimes I’ll get a Hoffner. But today, I finally broke down and tried the Pad Thai Wrap that I’ve been eyeballing for quite some time now…

It was really good. Melt makes incredible sammiches and mac & cheese too…

After lunch, we shared a whiskey sour made with egg whites. Delicious.

Then we stopped in Higher Gravity for a beer. Today, we tried Streetside’s OhEmG!

And oh my gosh, was that beer good. It was like a mouthful of raspberries without all the annoying little seeds. We also tried Streetside’s collaboration with Platform called Be A Lot Cooler If You Did too…

If was really good too but not nearly as good as the OhEmG! That was just… wow.

Northside is fun. We love it here. And we consider ourselves very lucky to have a wonderful home in this neighborhood. 😀🏡❤️

A stop at Streetside.

Being right in the neighborhood after lunch at Taglio, we stopped for a little sampler at Streetside Brewery. We love Streetside…

#15 was outstanding! Trouble in Paradise Millkshake Blonde with mango, passion fruit and guava. It was more like drinking juice and less like drinking a beer…

And we brought home a couple more crowlers with us to bring up to Michigan…

😀🍺❤️

Post Office Place.

This afternoon we met our friends Scott and Kathy and their kiddos Grace and Sam at Post Office Place  (POP for short) in Columbia Tusculum for lunch…

And that’s the last photo I took. 😕 We got to chit-chatting and eating and I completely forgot to snap any more photos. We shared POP’s Garlic Herb Bruschetta Goat Cheese Dip with pita bread which was awesome. We also tried some of their Buffalo POP Wings and we shared an East End Classic pizza with pepperoni, onions, green and red peppers, mushrooms and black olives on a classic red sauce. And those were really good too! Afterward, we stopped at Streetside for a beer. The next photo I took was of the Girl Scout cookies Grace delivered to us…

It was a fun afternoon. Sorry I completely blanked on taking photos of POP. It’s a really fun place with great food. If you next yourself in Columbia Tusculum, be sure to give them a try! 😀🍕🐔🍺🍪❤️

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. 😀🍺🍻❤️

Summer Hours: Streetside Brewery.

It very rare that we find ourselves over on the east side of town. But after chasing around after FC Cincinnati rally towels, that’s exactly where we found ourselves.
We decided to finally check out Streetside Brewery on Eastern Avenue over in the
East End/Columbia-Tusculum part of town for the first time. We’d tried a couple of their beers at Higher Gravity in Northside, and we were pleasantly surprised by how good they were. We were really excited to see what else Streetside had in store…

We arrived at Streetside just ahead of one of those beer tours…

Genifer has a Tea Bags and I had a Little Balls of Blue mixed with the Goseface Killah while we watched Arsenal take on Leicester City in the kick-off of the new EPL season…

Streetside offers a range of steamed sammiches as well…

In hindsight, I wish I would have tried a sammich. Genifer wishes she got a steamed soft pretzel. Oh well. Next time. Eventually, the beer tour moved on to their next location…

Awesome place. Great beers. Next time we find ourselves on the east side of town, we’re definitely stopping back into Streetside for a beer and a steamed sammich. 😀🍺🍻❤️
