We recently did a Staycation with our 17 year old niece and since she had been away from Cincinnati for 10 years - we decided to re-introduce her to everything the city has to offer. So the rest of this week will be dedicated to our Staycation and in-town Road Trip adventures.
First up was BB Riverboats - they provided us a tickets on their Christian Moerlein Beer & BBQ Cruise.
It's a really nice boat - there are three levels. You can go to the bar and get a drink and walk around before the ship takes off.
For the Moerlein tasting - we had four beer selections and a 4 oz glass to take home with us! That was a really nice keepsake for the trip. The beers were tasty and we were given explanations about each style.
That said - as a food blogger - I want to say - is it an "amazing outstanding best meal in the city"? No. But for a buffet that has to serve a few hundred people - we enjoyed it. And some of the dishes were REALLY good (I'd love to have that baked bean recipe.)
Why Should You Go? We really enjoyed the Beer & BBQ cruise. Tickets are $55 each for adults (dinner included) - you can also get a sightseeing only for $26. We had a really nice time on the boat and I definitely think we'll go back. The nice thing is that they have a wide variety of cruises throughout the year. They have dining, sightseeing and holiday cruises and even kids cruises! I'm really glad we finally got on board BB and we'll definitely be cruising again.
* We were provided 3 tickets on the Beer & BBQ Cruise in exchange for this post. We paid for the picture and tips on our own.
