Raising the Bars: Foodie Fever

Do prefer to fill your stomach before a night out? Love loading up on artisanal appetizers, fancy finger foods and awesome hors d’oeuvres? Calling all foodies: these bars are for you. Hofbrauhaus – Newport If German food is your cup of tea, the Hofbrauhaus in Newport is the place to be. It’s hard to go wrong with their bier cheese fries or any of the indulgent schnitzel options — and don’t forget about their legendary beer selection! This local favorite was the first Hofbrauhaus in America, modeled after the 400+-year-old original in Germany. So loosen your belt and join in the tradition.200 E. Third St. Newport, Ky. 859-491-7200.$$. Lots of space.  Latitudes – Anderson From Germany we head to this eclectic Mediterranean bar and grill. Sit down for some tapas while you experience one of their famous karaoke or trivia nights, and make sure to check out the calendar for their next live music act. This place is perfect for a low-stress, high-caliber night out with close friends, acquaintances you occasionally grab dinner with or a hot date.7454 Beechmont Ave., Anderson, 513-827-9146.$$. Theme nights.  BrewRiver GastroPub – East End BrewRiver GastroPub has some of the best “bar food” (if you can even call it that) in the area — they call chicken liver pate a light snack. The head chef, Michael Shields, spent six years working under Emeril Lagasse: chef extraordinaire and the star of 12 different cooking shows. If you love New Orleans delicacies and an incredible beer and wine suggestion for every meal, then this authentic establishment is right up your alley.2062 Riverside Dr., East End, 513-861-2484.$$. Live music.

I’ve been to wine pairing and cocktail pairing dinners, but I just hit my first beer pairing dinner.
