Out With The New and in With The Old - The Return to The Green Derby Kentucky Bistro

My more recent search through BeerMenus brought up the name of a location that I have not visited
in many years. Recently, it has undergone new management who have seem to bring their own flair to the establishment in the way of craft beers. But unlike many places, they have done so at a reasonable value that doesn't soak your wallet, which I like because I am all about the value. Anyway, this little establishment is what used to be The Green Derby and is now The Green Derby Kentucky Bistro. Same location but a little more updated as it will soon be heading toward its 70 year anniversary.

Now the last time I visited was many years ago, and I remember that throwback feel of the restaurant so I am glad to see that it has been updated. It seemed well received as well, as I heard other patrons also talking about the change. But the best thing here as it relates to the food is that it is all made fresh from scratch which is always nice. Too many chains and restaurants don't do that, and you can taste the difference. But away from the food and what I really came for was the beer. They have some very good selections with 15 taps on hand. I am not sure about the bottle or can selection, but I will be sure to check that out the next time that I visit.

So back to the beer, what did I drink? Well, since I was driving, I had to drink responsibly, so I limited myself to two. But, I opened with the Deschutes Chainbreaker White IPA which was very pleasant. It offered a great mouthfeel and a nice citrus flavor along with a pine aroma. It went well with the potato skins. I then followed that up with  Rhinegeist Chester which is a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. And let me tell you something, it is one smooth ale for sure. I'm talking a starburst of flavor with a very nice hop experience. It is liquid candy and if you get a chance to try then I recommend that you should, These beers in other locations would probably cost you between $5 to $8 depending on location, but here, they were only $4. That my friend is a value and that is not a special deal or anything. That is the regular cost. The food itself was just as good in value as well, and together made a great deal for an evening dinner. If you have not revisited this gem then I am recommending for you to do so. I am sure you will find something to your liking.

Cheers!

What I Found Walking Around Downtown Cincinnati - Rusconi Pizza

Sometimes you never know what is around until you get out and walk the beat, so to speak. Have you ever had that feeling where you are hungry and you don't know what you want to eat? I know I did earlier, and it happens every so often. So I decided to get out and walk around downtown Cincinnati and see what may inspire me. And low and behold, I come across this little place called Rusconi Pizza. I thought, that looks new, so I decided to check it out for a bite to eat due to its lunch special that was being advertised.

Once inside, I was pleased with what I had found. As far as the pizza it was a nice and tasty, but as for the beer, they had a nice craft beer selection, although I was not able to fully partake. But now I know and I will be back at some point. This shows how it always pays to get out and visit your surroundings to see what may now be a part of the neighborhood. 

It also is a nice leisurely way to exercise. Cheers!

Love a Bargain and New Beers to Review

It's always great when deals are stumbled upon unexpectedly. Earlier today, I was able to come across these beauties for some upcoming beer reviews. At $1.99 each, these were definitely a bargain and pretty much a steal from one of my local beer locations.

Now it's on to the fridge and to let them cool before I look to taste their glory. Make sure to visit my YouTube channel to catch my thoughts on these and the other beers that I have also reviewed previously.
