I’ve made it no secret how much I enjoy Over-the-Rhine’s self-proclaimed inaugural sports bar. Not only does Rhinehaus encompass historic OTR charm, the bartenders are friendly, there are TVs seemingly everywhere, they open early on the weekends for Premier League viewership, and there are shot specials and jager bombs*. Oh, I guess they have decent beer, too. It was because we got to watch Olympic programming and a Xavier basketball game—both while enjoying good beers with good friends—that we opted to spend this past Saturday afternoon at OTR’s only sports bar, Rhinehaus.
*I get it. I’m a little bit of a frat guy when it comes to drinking, but jager bombs are few and far between in the now-popular OTR drinkeries.
