Review: Two Cities Pizza Co.

It’s not often I find myself in Mason, so when the opportunity presented itself, I had to go. And by “when the opportunity presented itself,” I actually mean that a dear friend had just had a baby, and considering how much she shares my affinity for pizza, I used this as excuse to order way…

2018 Cincinnati Bucket List

Every year we Cincinnatians partake in many traditions — from Opening Day to Festival of Lights, and the WEBN fireworks, the People of Porkopolis are known for being traditional folks. Especially when it comes to annual festivals. There are a number of things I love to do around the city, from going to Cincy Beerfest…

Review: Bircus Brewing

It’s not every day BK goes along with my spontaneous ideas — and lord knows they happen often. “I’d really like to try that restaurant all the way out ‘iiiiiiiin Milford,’” or “Let’s drive out to Eastgate for Red Sesame and Jungle Jim’s,” or “How about we walk from work to Wooden Cask for happy…

10 Best Things of 2017

Before I get to the list, I want to say that 2017 was a transformational year personally and for Tour de Cincinnati. Personally, I was able to travel and set and attain a number of goals. I also had a lot of great beer, celebrated my 32nd birthday with a streetcar bar crawl, ate a…

In Memorium: 2017

As with awards shows, it is important to pay tribute to greater Cincinnati’s now-defunct restaurants and businesses. I know there are more, but these are the ones that stick out (in alphabetical order). Ei8ht Ball Brewing (Newport) Ei8ht Ball was one of the first places I tried — and liked — real beer. Many memories of…

Review: Craft Connection

By now you all probably know how much I love my breweries (archived brewery posts here), so when the opportunity arose to go on a Craft Connection tour, I had to do it. And, well, I decided to double it as Monthiversary Vol. 13. The initial tour I signed up for ended up being cancelled…

Review: Fretboard Brewing

Another day, another new brewery in greater Cincinnati! (This is a good thing.) This marks the 34th brewery within 30 miles of the city center and one of 10 to open in 2017 alone*. Cincinnati certainly doesn’t have any shortage of breweries, and, truth be told, they are all pretty good. Between their taprooms and…
