Foodie Friday: Third Eye Brewing

This week we headed to the Northern Lights District in Sharonville to check out the newly opened Third Eye Brewing to see what is on tap.

 

Upon our arrival, we got to experience far more than just what was on tap. But speaking of what’s on tap, we each got a different flight so that we could sample the home (and family) brewed beers. Their motto is to “open the minds eye” and to create beer with the community – and they sure accomplished that with the wide range of styles.

 

Sounds like your typical brewery review, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not – and hardly ends there. The newest addition to the brewery is that of the head Chef, Chef Steven Vanderpool. Chef Steven has created an expansive menu combining his love for Cajun flare, my favorite: His Gumbo. It was beyond good, but that’s probably because I had also combined it with his beef short rib poutine… which was out of this world.

 

Now, when I say this place is so good that you have to go back – we did. Chef Steven was offering their first pairing dinner – limited to only a few guests – that paired their best beers with Chef’s best dishes. Served on paper plates, the place dished out four rounds of beer, and four separate (and hearty) dishes. We will be visiting Third Eye Brewing again, soon. We recommend you all do the same!

#FoodieFriday w/ Tano Bistro and Narrow Path Brewing

This week Maggie and I headed to downtown Loveland to explore two of our favorite places – Narrow Path Brewing and Tano Bistro.

We started the day off by renting an igloo at Narrow Path for 2 hours. After an intense card game (and some delicious beers), we decided to order Tano Bistro directly to our igloo! Crab cakes, a charcuterie board, and pretzels were exactly what we needed to fuel up another hand. Paired with the delicious in-house brewed beers and warm igloo atmosphere, our day was made. But it wasn’t over yet!

We hit the road for the .2 mile walk from Narrow Path to Tano Bistro. There we met Gaetano, owner and chef. We had the opportunity to sit down with Chef himself and discuss how they started, their catering business, both restaurant locations (one in Hamilton too!), and their evolving menu options of delicious food.

If you haven’t tried Narrow Path Brewing or Tano Bistro yet, we highly encourage you to do so! You’ll want to go early, though, because downtown Loveland has so much to offer (like great shopping, too)!

MPH Brewing: Local Brews and Wood-Fired Pizza in Downtown Montgomery

Greater Cincinnati Living is back with the first episode of the New Year! This episode takes us to downtown Montgomery to MPH (Montgomery Public House) where we camped out in a heated tent outside and enjoyed some pizza, brews and great conversation with two of the owners!

My sister, Maggie Curtis, and I had the pleasure of meeting with Jim and Tony to talk about what inspired them about the location, the co-ownership, the brewing, and the pizza.

They talk about finding the perfect space (formerly Pomodori’s) first, and then finding what they wanted to do. They decided to create an environment where folks could hang, drink some of their favorites, and enjoy the wood fired pizzas (trust us, they are delicious).

Among a variety of in-house homemade wood-fired pizzas is a long list of beer choices. The U.S. Beer Open (annual event across the nation) has named MPH’s very own Hefeweizen third place winner in its category (with over 4,000 other competitors) – so you’ll have to try it! They are also partnered with Left Hand Brewing – so there are options for all beer drinkers!

Another cool feature about MPH is that they are giving back to the local community through their Give Back Tuesday program. They’ve partnered with local charities like Operation GivebackSycamore Bridges, Sycamore Sports teams, Hoxworth Blood Center and Breast Cancer Awareness to help support these efforts.

The co-owners together have 6 children in the Sycamore school district, with a few of their kids working at the restaurant, and a few Sycamore teachers as well!

If you’re looking to support a business who supports our community, while enjoying good eats and great beer, this will definitely be a spot you’ll want to try out!
