BrewRiver GastroPubI’ve been waiting for a long time to try brunch at BrewRiver GastroPub…ever since I met Chef Michael Shields at an event and experienced the culinary delight of getting to taste his homemade goetta.  It was out of this world.  We’ve been to his restaurant, BrewRiver GastroPub, several times for dinner and we love the place.  We just don’t make it out for brunch very often.  This morning we found ourselves with only Henry at home and nothing on the agenda, so we decided to treat ourselves to a nice breakfast out.  And what a treat it was!  We had a most scrumptious meal, paired with some local brews.  BrewRiver GastroPub is in a gorgeous building on Riverside drive and offers a lovely view of the Ohio River.  The menu offers unique dishes made with fresh ingredients and some of the recipes even include beer.  Their website offers this vision statement, which sort of sums up everything about this restaurant:

“Our vision combines regional chef-inspired cooking with handpicked top-notch local ingredients and a fine dining experience with a casual and informal pub atmosphere. Tapping into the brewing history of our beloved river town, we find that beer is not only part of Cincinnati’s heritage, but part of a meal and also part of our recipes. Beer is a link to our past, our present and an ingredient of who we are as community.”

If you find yourself looking for a new restaurant to try, or you are a beer lover looking for a place to dine that offers not only fantastic food but a great craft beer selection, then I highly recommend a visit to BrewRiver GastroPub.  If their signature brunch dishes don’t appeal to you, they also offer sides that you can mix and match to make a meal.  Some of their sides include such items as hash browns, cheese grits, biscuits, house-made goetta, and Henry’s favorite…fresh berries with cream.  We really loved our brunch this morning, and I cannot wait to go again and try more of their specialty dishes.
