A couple of weeks ago, Cincinnati was introduced to a new craft beer - Deschutes Brewery from Portland/Bend, Oregon. Deschutes is the 6th largest craft brewery in the US and they have just come to the Ohio/Kentucky area! They know how much beer this area can put away - so they waited to make sure they had enough to supply us (I'm NOT kidding here).
Why Should You Go? I've been to Teller's before and it's a nice option in Hyde Park. It's not my favorite by any means but it's a good option. They have a wide menu and the vault room is great for small parties as well. The salad and dessert were amazing - but the starter and main were just okay. They were wonderful hosts to Deschutes and those guys were very friendly and informative. I didn't love any of the beers (but I'm a beer wuss) - but they are very popular and didn't get to be so big by accident. If you see them on tap around the city - give them a try!
Disclosure: Thanks to the folks at Deschutes for hosting Larry & I for dinner.
