Way too many brews for any more bad news.

Ohio beer adventures.

Went to Kentucky this weekend to visit a friend and went to a baseball game. The Reds kicked some serious ass, and I got this sweet tallboy cozy. Pardon the Budweiser: it was the least expensive beer I could get.

I know it’s a bit late, but here are some photos from March’s Cleveland Beer Tour. We hit up Great Lakes, Winks,The Brew Kettle (my personal favorite), and both the Fat Head’s Pub and the Brewery/Tap House, among other Cleveland sites. 

I’ve never felt more welcome in a bar than I have at The Brew Kettle, and we ended up spending a solid four hours there our first night chatting with the bartenders and locals, who gave us some awesome beer and brewery recommendations. Between the two of us, we probably tasted their whole in-house line-up. The Fat Head’s Tap House was definitely a hidden gem as well— it’s located in what looks like an industrial park and hidden away from the road, and the inside is minimally decorated. You could sample any number of their beers, and their food menu, though smaller than the pub’s, was delicious. Great Lakes was, of course, Great Lakes. I’d never toured a brewery before, and I can’t even begin to describe how I felt when we walked in and were immediately smacked in the face by the glorious smell of hops. For as much beer as I drink, I was a little in the dark about the brewing process itself, so it was cool to get a quick lesson on that, too. All of the beers I had over the course of the weekend were Cleveland-based, and I don’t think I tried one I disliked. 

The trip was fabulous, from the beer to the food to the company. I know the city sometimes gets a bad rap, but I would gladly head back up and explore more of what they have to offer. 

(A Cincinnati trip is in the very early stages of planning…)

Ommegang Game of Thrones: Fire and Blood (Red Ale)
Got my bottle of this and cracked it open Friday night. I’ll say one thing: it wasn’t was what I was expecting. I probably should have done my research on the style a little more, because typically when I hear the phrase red ale I’m thinking more along the lines of a sour. Well, it wasn’t, and it falls into the American Amber category. It was good; there’s a little spice kick and it goes down easily. It’s not my favorite of the GoT line (that honor goes to Take the Black), and it didn’t sweep me off my feet… but that’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it with a healthy dose of The X-Files and Tim Tams.

Jolly Pumpkin La Roja (Flanders Red Ale)
First sour ale and first Jolly Pumpkin offering I’ve ever had. It was… strange. The flavor (“sourness”) reminded me more of wine than beer, but my interest is definitely piqued about this particular style now.
