Beer and Sushi
Hello everybody! I know that I typically write about beer, and usually it involves Cincinnati beer, well this time I’m writing about a brewery that’s located in Covington, Kentucky!
This weekend I went to the Braxton Brewery and I was pleasantly surprised with some quite delicious beer. Granted, I only liked two beers on the list (I’m not a big IPA fan) but I really didn’t enjoy their Dead Blow, which is their tropical stout. I bought a growler of it a few days later and was a little disappointed because the version I had was run through their starter coffee, but the lady working there told me that the beer would be rather bitter if the growler contained the coffee they put it through. If you didn’t know already, or if you are new to this blog, there are three things that I cannot resist. Coffee, beer and sushi. So this was a wonderful weekend for me! I am in love with this beer. It was absolutely delicious. As pictured above, I did actually get a flight of beer so I could try the majority of their beers. Wow, only six bucks for a flight? That’s pretty awesome! I did end up liking their Storm beer as well, which is a golden cream ale (No I don’t know what golden cream ale means but it was tasty!), and it was rather charming. While I do love craft beer I will settle for a Blue Moon any day of the week. It’s the only beer that’s more commercialized that doesn’t taste like beer water to me. The Storm beer reminded me of a Blue Moon but it didn’t have that strong citrus flavor that Blue Moon has.
After we went to Braxton, we headed down to Wabi Sabi, which is a sushi restaurant In Covington as well. If you like Cloud 9 or Ichiban Sushi (Located in Mt. Lookout in Ohio) then you’ll love this place. This restaurant is located on Madison Avenue and is now my go to sushi place in Northern Kentucky! While I really love Miyako, it’s kind of expensive to eat there unless you’re there on a Tuesday when it’s half price. Well Wabi Sabi follows the Ichiban and Cloud 9 menality by always having “half off” sushi. If you like authentic sushi, this probably isn’t the place for you, go to Jo An’s which is in Erlanger, Kentucky. I oddly enough, like the “fake” kind of sushi, the real stuff wasn’t my favorite. So try both places and see what works best for you. My favorite rolls at any sushi place are the shrimp tempura rolls, but try the shrimp crunch roll if you’re at Cloud 9!
What are your favorite places to drink beer or eat sushi?
