Come out to MadTree Brewing Company this Saturday and join me and many other beer bloggers in celebrating local beer, local music and local food. There will be rare, one-off MadTree beers on tap (Coffee Gnarly Amber!), along with great food by the C'est Cheese food truck, and music from local band The Kentucky Struts.
See Chris's post at Queen City Fresh for all the info and details. I'll be there at 7.

I'm not sure what to tell readers when I start a review of something called a "Pecan pie porter." I don't need a reason to review this beer. It has "Pecan pie" in its description, so I must drink it. That's the long and the short of it. It's almost holiday season anyway, which in my eyes means copious amounts of pie consumed. I basically get all my pie intake during two months of the year, which if I think about it for a second, is probably a good thing. Anyway, I'm rambling here. Isn't this a beer blog?

On a lazy Sunday evening, I got up off my couch and drove across Interstate 275 into Ohio, crossing the river. After a short 20 minutes of breeze and riverside driving, I found myself browsing through the equipment at a brewery, admiring the handiwork of one man and many hours of labor. I wasn't there to drink beer or learn brewing, however; I had come for something much more sinister.

As I sat in the airy open space of Rhinegeist Brewery's tap room, waiting for growlers to be filled, I sipped a malty glass of Uncle, their English mild. I sipped deeply, knowing I would be safe in the bosom of the "Wild West" side of Cincinnati soon, helping to crown a king. Not just any king, but the local king of the most popular craft beer style in the United States. Little did I know, it would be an eye-opener.
