Krueger's Tavern.

Tonight after work, we walked up Vine Street to check out the latest addition to The Gateway Quarter, Kreuger's Tavern. It gets its name from Kreuger's Brewing. The New Jersey brewery that was the first to sell beer in cans all the way back in 1935. Kreuger's Tavern is the latest project from Thunderdome Restaurant Group, who also own OtR darling's, Bakersfield and The Eagle Beer and Food Hall.

We thought the framed moss on the walls was really pretty cool...

You won't find any draft beers here. Kreuger's thing is canned beer. In fact, they have 88 different cans of beers in all varieties on the menu...

Genifer got Kreuger's signature drink, a gin & tonic. I just got a Miller Lite. It tastes great and it's less filling...

Speaking of tasting great, that was the best gin & juice I've ever tasted. Soooo smooth. Genifer spied beer cheese in the Snacks section of Kreuger's menu...

BAM!

Genifer ordered the house-made Lincolnshire Sausage on mashed potatoes...

It was delicious! And I ordered Kreuger's Burger. Our server described the burger as a Big Mac on steroids. It was incredible!

Who would have that bourbon and beer would have been so tasty together? We knew Kreuger's was going to be terrific just based off of how good Bakersfield and The Eagle are. But we had no idea of just how incredible it would be. We can't wait to get back to Kreugers very, very soon. And you should too before there's a three-hour wait on a Saturday night like there is at Bakersfield and The Eagle. :)

"For the city, it is a dream come true."

It was a big day for Cincinnati Music Hall. Music Hall received Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits in the amount of $25 million to put the historic venue one step closer to the amount needed to do a full renovation and be preserved for many generations to come.
