We have so many local craft breweries that have popped up in Cincinnati - it's just nuts! Mt Carmel has been around a while, but we also have Rivertown, Rhinegeist, Listermann, MadTree, Blank Slate, Christian Moerlein and Triple Digit. Whew - that's a lotta beer! But wait - there's one more - 50 West!
Not surprising - there's a great beer selection. They have very clever names and a wide variety - everything from light and fruity to dark and chunky. Larry and I both have pretty specific tastes - so it didn't take long to make our choices.
I can't really find any info on their page about it - but Larry liked it. Not as much as his Bourbon Barrel beer. I didn't like it at all (shocker) - but Larry could definitely taste the wine aspect of it. But then after holding it in your mouth - you definitely got the bourbon flavor.
Speedbump Kolsch Ale. It was very light and carbonated. There wasn't much bitterness to it. I did add a little lemon to it and it was even better.
Why Should You Go? It's very nice and a little "older" crowd than some places we've been. We're 40 (yikes) and were probably about the average age. The area for diners is tucked down and very cozy - we definitely want to go back. The menu is tapas - so it's small plates. After reviewing the menu - I'd love to try the Shrimp & Crab Dip - and definitely will next time we go!
