February Brewer’s Spotlight – Rhinegeist

Rhinegeist

One of the things we are passionate about here at Ravenwood Castle and the Malted Meeple is craft beer. We pride ourselves on having an excellent assortment of craft beers for the enjoyment of our guests. In our monthly Brewer’s Spotlight feature we raise our pints to the men and women who dedicate themselves to the brewing craft. This month, we raise our pints to our friends from Rhinegeist Brewery – a brewery that brews their beer right here in Ohio! In fact each and every can, bottle, and tap handle proudly declares that they are “Cincy-Made!” Rhinegeist means “Ghost of the Rhine” and takes its name from the historic Brewery District located in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, a neighborhood that Rhinegeist proudly calls…

February Milkshake Madness

Milkshake Flight

January has ended and so has an epic competition of Whovian proportions. Throughout the month three of our favorite Dr. Who elements competed to become February’s Milkshake of the Month. The TARDIS flew through our milkshake machines and Gallifrey lorded over our pint glasses, but not enough to win the necessary votes to be crowned victor! In a blink of an eye, the Weeping Angel’s Chocolate Marshmallow Cookie devoured the competition and will move on to become February’s Milkshake of the Month. In February, we celebrate a special holiday: Presidents Day. Officially created as an homage to George Washington’s birthday, it now stands in February as a way to honor and celebrate all previous U.S. Presidents. We will be celebrating President’s day as only we…
