Blueberry Bloody Mary, aka The Bloody Bison

I don’t know how this happened, but somehow Blueberry Bison Month turned into Boozy Blueberry Bison Month because we’ve shared nothing but mixed drinks lately! Actually, I take that back because I know exactly how this happened – we have the world’s smallest kitchen and a serious lack of central air. Every weekend this summer…

Blueberry Mango Chipotle Daiquiri

If you’ve been following the blog for a minute, you know that JP likes to mix things up, especially by using somewhat unexpected ingredients in normal dishes. Now blueberry and mango obviously go well together, but chipotle? In a daiquiri? As per usual, this was another culinary learning lesson for me and JP opened my…

Bison Beer Review & Pairing: 5 Rabbit Cervecería

It’s no secret that 5 Rabbit Brewery is my favorite brewery. It’s one of the first beers I’ll ask for in a bar and I’m always telling people about it. We even drove 6 hours a few weekends ago to check out their tap room/retail grand opening. So when we met with this great guy…

Follow the Bison to… Hullabaloo!

We were invited to the Grandview High Gravity Hullabaloo by our friends at the Grandview Craft Beer Alliance; for those who don’t know, they’re a great group of people that are really supporting the eat/drink/shop local movement in the Grandview area of Columbus, especially where craft beer is concerned. Hullabaloo was promoted as a “celebration…

Follow the Bison to… Columbus Winter Beerfest!

Jess here! For some reason, I have developed ridiculously good luck when it comes to winning tickets to beer festivals. Last year, I won special passes to Brewzilla, Cleveland Beer Week’s culminating event, and to start off 2014, I won VIP tickets to the Fourth Annual Columbus Winter BeerFest, courtesy of ColumbusUnderground.com! There’s nothing like…

Bison Beer Review & Pairing: Bearwaters Brewing Company

The last stop on our impromptu mini tour of breweries was this awesome little place called BearWaters Brewing Company (formerly HeadWaters Brewery). They’ve been in town for a little over a year and have A LOT to offer. The actual brewery is in a great location because it’s right off the highway but still hidden…

Bison Beer Review & Pairing: Innovation Brewing

Another NC brewery we’d like to tell you about is called Innovation Brewing. They’re also located in Sylva not too far from Heinzelmännchen. We were actually pretty lucky with this surprise find because they had literally just opened a week or so prior to our visit! The whole scene was really cool and laid back….

Bison Beer Review & Pairing: Heinzelmännchen Brewery

If you ever find yourself in western North Carolina, you’ll want to stop by a small blink-and-you’d-miss-it college town called Sylva because it’s home to one of our faves:  Heinzelmännchen Brewery. It’s this super tiny basement spot with just a few card tables and chairs set up only a few feet away from the brew…
