For those of you like, “errrrr Grippawhatta?” Let me fill you in.
Grippo’s seasoning is a sweet, salty, spicy bbq mix best known for it’s use on Grippo chips, simply called by local Cincinnatians, “Grippos.” Grippos are easily one of the best things to come out of Cincy, like waaaaaaaay better than Sky Line or Gold Star “chili.” Seriously, what is that stuff?
There are several restaurants in town that actually use the Grippo seasoning in their dishes. My favorite of these is the Rookwood Grippo french fries. The Rookwood is the first restaurant that Mike and I ate at in Cincinnati so we have such a soft spot for everything they do. Plus their burgers are freaking delicious.
We’ve been very busy little homebrewers of late, and it feels so right.
I’ve been talking a lot about these RyePA (Rye IPA) beers we brewed on our friend Sean’s Electric Brewery system, remember that gorgeous system I told you about? Well, they’re all carbonated and ready to enjoy!! To celebrate, last weekend we had a combined tapping/birthday party. What better way to celebrate my late twenties than with a duo of delicious home brews!
We went ahead and splurged by getting Eli’s BBQ catered which was UH-mazing. God I love that place. Beers and BBQ, ya’ll. Happy birthday to me.
So much alliteration and deliciousness. You’re going to die. In a good way.
Ever since we brewed our RyePA a few weeks ago, my friend Sarah and I have been on kind of a spent grain recipe bender. This is a good thing, because as it turns out, when you brew a 15 gallon batch of beer you have a LOT of grain leftover. Continue reading Spent Grain Brown Butter Banana Bread→
