    It was a mango IPA (so I can't read) and they sold out by 8 pm. Talking now about making another batch and bottling it. I guess it was a hit. Not my cup of tea though.

    Him earning a paycheck at that? Hah. He's a volunteer brewer just trying to learn how its done. He already works 60 hrs. a week as a chef so when he opens his own restaurant, he'll brew his own beer as well. The boy is crazy.

    My daughter made a pilgrimage to Jackie O's because they started selling Mystic Mama in cans. They've got some Jackie' O's beers on tap at Flip Daddy's here too.

    Jackie O's is a pretty cool place. I've been there the last 2 dad's weekends at OU. They have beer tastings and then we stay for 3-4 (5, 6, 7...) hours. The owner/brewer is an interesting guy. We talked to him about his beers for quite a while.

    Brew Ha Ha was fun last night. Tried a ton of great beer and really enjoyed Tom Arnold. Green Flash Double Stout was my favorite drink of the evening.

    Made my way through Wisconsin recently and had a chance to pick up some New Glarus beer. Two Women and Edel Pils were both phenomenal. Both super clean and crisp pilsners. Probably some of the best American-brewed pilsners I've had the chance to drink. I've also had Spotted Cow in the past, and that was great as well.

    New Glarus ranks right up there as one of my favorite breweries in the Midwest. Unfortunately, they don't distribute outside of Wisconsin.

    Anyone else going to the Inaugural Beer Baron's Ball tonight at the Casino? I'll be one in the black tux...don't get to wear that too often. Since this Ball is the first one I don't know what to expect but it sounds like fun.

    Aside from that, there is a beer event on Fountain Square but I'm not a fan of this one because the money spent is weighted towards the fund raiser portion and not so much towards the beer. It works like this: You pay about $40 bucks and for that you get more beer than you can drink--25 beer "tastes" of 5 oz each. Nobody needs that much. Oktoberfest 100% of your money goes towards beer since there is no cover. Brew Ha Ha has a $5 cover and even with that, you'll only spend about $20 total for an evening of beer. You're looking at twice that much at the event this weekend.

    Having said that, the Beer Baron's Ball is also a find raiser but many black tie events are and at least we'll get food as well. I'll have to see whether it's worth it, but it's a completely different kind of event than these street beer festivals

    We had a Fest of Ales a couple weekends ago in Lexington, and it was $25 for 20 tastes. After 17 I had to tap out. I hope you're taking a cab, is all I'm saying. It was a blast, though.

    They're known for their hoppy ales, particularly IPAs. I had one this week at Stone Creek in West Chester. I thought it was a pretty good IPA but those are not for me. I'm a lager guy. Must be my German roots

    They're located near Findlay St Market in the very old Christian Moerlein brewery building...the one from like 100 yrs ago.

    I like their name. It means ghost of the Rhine (river) in German

    It is on the top floor of the old Christian Moreline brewery. Its a pretty cool place, the beer is good but so far production is limited so you can only get it there and at a few restaurants in OTR. I would recommend going but wouldn't go if its a hot day because they don't have AC.

    The Beer Baron's Ball was excellent last night. A first class event indeed. I was particularly impressed with the food. They had several "islands" set up where you could get your fill of food like rare prime rib, sauteed shrimp w/ pasta, mashed potatoes with a host of toppings that you could add yourself, huge Bavarian pretzels, hot dogs in kraut, potato pancakes, lucious desserts and much more. All these islands had the same options so lines were not a problem. The beer choices were limited to 4 kinds of Christian Moerlein but that was fine. I'd definitely recommend this event

    We went to Neon's instead of Rheingeist. Cranky old Dad had been house painting all day and wanted food But now I know a hipster place to go.

    Pretty cool place and good beer. I had a Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro which was very good. Also had a Bear Republic Black Racer which was quite potent. Burgers from Taste 513 and one of the better burgers I've had in a long time.

    Really nice outdoor patio, but what's with everyone bringing dogs to bars?

    I went there the last time I was in town and really enjoyed it. Loved the IPA in particular (I think it was the IPA?) and it's a beautiful building. If you manage to go again and are still hungry, Roy, there's food cart out front (of course there's a food cart out front) that sells delicious gourmet pizza.

    And then we went to Neon's, so I guess we are all pretty predictable over on this board.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Hey Roy, if you're a Masonite and a beer guy, have you tried out Lucky Dog Cafe? Their food is pretty much standard bar fare, with their wings being slightly better than average. It's a non descript kinda place, in the plaza behind Speedway, across the street from Brazenhead on Tylersville. But their beer selection is solid.
