Photo Recap: Summer 2017

I initially set out to post a photo recap every month — a way to share photos I love that maybe weren’t previously published on Tour de Cincinnati. But with the busyness of the summer, these posts haven’t happened since Photo Recap: May. Thus, as summer [unofficially] comes to a close here is a photo…

12 Beers to Drink This Fall

September — the month of autumn and Oktoberfest — is here and fall seasonals have been gracing our shelves for weeks now. (How early they’re released isn’t my favorite thing, but that’s neither here nor there.) With its rich German history, there’s no surprise Zinzinnati loves its Oktoberfest and Märzen beers — lagers that are…

Road Trip: Grand Rapids, Michigan

Around this time last year we went on a Short Road Trip From Cincinnati, and I recounted the surprise getaway I planned for BK’s 30th birthday to Dayton and Yellow Springs. It’s not often we go on vacation, but we do our best to go on a few weekend trips per year. We recently decided to…

Review: Ramundo’s

I really pride myself on eating like a sophisticated six-year-old and, from desserts and breakfasts to entrees, I prefer my fare to be more on the plain side. That’s not to say I won’t eat Cookies & Cream, but there’s something to be said about chocolate and vanilla ice cream. I love a good burger…

Review: Melt and Higher Gravity

Last week BK and I celebrated our eleventh monthiversary.* But last week was also a jam-packed week on the blog, so I decided to wait to write about our night out in Northside, where we had dinner at the revamped Melt Eclectic Cafe, followed by a beer from the newly-opened Higher Gravity Crafthaus. Pretty often BK…

Review: The Woodburn Brewery & Taproom

This Saturday, August 19, we will be celebrating the one-year anniversary of The Woodburn Brewery & Taproom, the neighborhood brewery situated in the Madison and Woodburn Historic District in East Walnut Hills. It was an impatient 18+ months in the making before The Woodburn officially opened its doors to the public in 2016 (with the…

It’s also worth noting that it’s still Downtown Cincinnati Restaurant Week, which started on Monday and lasts until Sunday, August 13.

Review: Revel OTR

I am excited to announce Tour de Cincinnati’s first collaboration. Because I am more of a beer person (and I’m not what you’d consider “classy”), I have partnered with Blake, a friend of TDC, who is far classier, worldly, and more qualified to talk wine than I am. Thus, I present to you, the second…

Thanks for the memories, Blank Slate

Now that I’ve had some time to let the news sink in, I still cannot believe it’s gone. I’m relatively new to the beer-drinking scene, having started somewhere around 2014 thanks to BK, Ei8ht Ball (first review here and second review here), and Tour de Cincinnati. What began as casually sneaking tastes from BK’s flights, eventually…
