Upland Brewing Co. Jeffersonville

Jeffersonville, IN

April 24, 2021

Unlike the former restaurant tenant at this prime Jeffersonville location, Upland has not disappointed! Craft beers, good appetizers, and even brunch!

We’ve been to Upland a few times now. Our first visit was their opening weekend and we dropped in for a quick drink and snack to finish watching The Masters. We asked to sit with a view of the TV, which also offered a Louisville skyline cand river view. For drinks, we had the classic Champagne Velvet and the Campside IPA. For a snack, we tried the whipped feta and honey. After eating this, I realized that feta cheese may be my favorite cheese.

Our second visit was for a happy hour drink after work. We sat at the bar and ordered the Patio Cat the Juiced in Time Hazy IPA. We also decided to have a snack and ordered the cornbread muffins. Patio Cat reminded me of a shandy and is certainly a drink that would be perfect for summer weather.

Our most recent visit was probably my favorite! We visited on a Saturday, sat at the bar and brunch was being served! We ordered the Egg Sandwich and B&G (biscuits and gravy). For drinks, we had the Upland Lily and the Campside IPA, again. The Upland Lily is Upland’s take on the Oak’s Lily. It was a great brunch beer. The fruity and tart flavors of the beer went amazing with the savory egg sandwich and fried potatoes!

The locations offers plenty of space and seating. There is an outdoor bar that will be opened in warmer weather, bar seating indoors, plenty of tables inside and patio seating outside. I’m certainly glad to have Upland Brewing Co in Jeffersonville, IN!

Cheers to many more beers here!

The Alcove

Jeffersonville, IN

4/24/2021

Recessed between The Red Yeti and The Springs Salon is an eclectic neighborhood dive called The Alcove.

I don’t remember how we came across The Alcove, but it has been one of our favorite spots to drop in over the past couple of years.

Serving crafted seasonal cocktails, rotating craft beers on draft, along with bottles and cans, The Alcove always has something to quench your thirst and after a couple of years of me wishing they had snacks, my wish has come true!

The Alcove’s current selection of craft cocktails, beers & snacks.

The Alcove offers cozy indoor seating and has a newly remodeled outdoor space that offers seating, a beer shack and a food truck! The smash burger from the food truck is delicious! P.S. the food truck offers vegetarian options, including a veggie burger option for the smash burger!

Against the Grain’s Pool Boi is my current favorite.

In addition to good drinks, The Alcove offers patrons a welcoming environment, great bartenders, and sometimes an interesting choice of music.

Several local businesses have been forced to close during the covid pandemic. We want to make sure The Alcove remains in Jeffersonville, so make sure to support local and tip your bartenders!

Fireside Bar & Grill

Sellersburg, IN

4/15/2021

Turning right from SR-60, Neil & Patty’s Fireside Bar & Grill appears to be too busy. You see, during this pandemic, we have tried to make sure that we avoid going to places that are packed. However, we pull in the parking lot and see half of the other lot isn’t full. 

We walk into the “bar” side of the restaurant, look to see that bar seating is full and then we turn and see a cozy booth in the corner empty. We sit down and just a moment later, our waitress greets us at our table.

We love Neil & Patty’s. The bar side is nice and cozy. It’s dimly lit with soft warm white lights across the bar. The music is always good. Sometimes jazzy. Nothing boring. Their draft beer selection, although small, is very good. There are normally 4 craft beers of different varieties on tap. If none of the craft drafts are what you are looking for, check out their list of bottles and cans. 

During the week, different drink specials are offered. We went on a Thursday which was $5.50 Fireside cocktails. We opted for a Falls City Pilsner and Half Acre Daisy Cutter Ale. 

The dinner special for the day was a Thai Chili chicken with rice and broccoli. We opted for their amazing chicken tender meal and The Sellersburger. 

Drinks are fast to come out, are cold and delicious! Dinner comes out hot and tasty! Service is great! Fireside Bar & Grill is a Sellersburg gem! If you haven’t been here, you should!
