month, winter ales will hit the market, including MadTree’s
popular Thundersnow. But before we all huddle inside for the long cold
ahead, there are still more fun fall activities to be had.
When Oakley breakfast spot Sleepy Bee
Café opened at the end of 2013, it proved to be so buzzed about that
husband-and-wife owners Dr. John Hutton and Sandra Gross decided to open
a second location in Blue Ash this year.
In August, mezcal bar and taqueria Frida 602 opened in Covington’s MainStrasse neighborhood.
Owners Paul Weckman and his wife Emily Wolff, who also run Otto’s down
the street, wanted Frida to be a hub for the growing village. So far
they’ve succeeded — the locals have been coming out in droves.
It’s officially fall, so prepare for
ciders, more pumpkin beers and hopefully some seasonals that have
nothing to do with autumn from your favorite local breweries.
(Thankfully, no Christmas beers yet.) And despite the weather shifting,
beer festivals keep chugging away.
