Tuesday Brewsday: Fifty West Brewing Company - Cincinnati, Ohio

A few weeks ago, Buddy, Gus, and I decided to make a drive out to Fifty West's Brewpub on the east side of Cincinnati. Buddy and I had tried (and liked) their Doom Pedal White Ale, so we wanted to sample some of their other brews. Since they have Sunday brunch from 10am - 2pm at the brewpub, we went on a Sunday. Brunch, brews - what more could you ask for?

Tuesday Brewsday: Fifty West Brewing Company in Cincinnati, Ohio - We love visiting breweries, and today I'm talking about Fifty West Brewing in Cincinnati - one of our favorites!

I should point out that there is the Production Works just down the road, plus they have volleyball, canoeing and kayaking, and cycling - as well as running groups!

We highly recommend visiting the brewpub. There's a bar area as well as lots of tables and chairs. We had a cozy corner table/booth in a section with just five other tables. The food was awesome! I had the grilled cheese - and it ain't your mama's grilled cheese. Imagine whipped ricotta, provolone, marinated artichokes, and roasted mushrooms on grilled focaccia bread. Delicious. I also had a bowl of their chili which was also very tasty. (Note: There are no photos of Gus' or Buddy's food because they get all huffy when they're starving and I try to take pictures. But they both enjoyed their meal.)

We each had our own flight of beer, and also shared so we could try as many as possible. Later, I opted for a pint of Doom Pedal, which I very kindly shared with Gus. I enjoyed all of the beer I chose, and so did Gus and Buddy. Very smooth and easy to drink. As a matter of fact, since sampling several of their brews, if we're out and a restaurant has something from Fifty West, I will almost always order it - that's how much I like their beer (unless it's an IPA).

After we finished our meal and beer, we wandered back through the brewpub (mostly so I could use the restroom). That's when we saw the brewery. Very cool.

I also loved their beer menus! I want to learn to write like this!

And I can't forget to mention their merchandise. Once again, we couldn't leave without making some purchases. I got a great long-sleeve t-shirt. It's sooo soft. I love it and wear it all the time. Buddy picked up a pint glass and metal sign for his collections.
