Phoenix's O.H.S.O. Eatery + nanoBrewery

Craft Draft at O.H.S.O. Eatery + nanoBrewery
Of course my trip to Phoenix for the MLB FanCave couldn't be ALL baseball.  I had to sneak some Bite and Booze in at some point.  Fortunately after getting picked up from the airport by Veronica, a good friend from back in my LSU days, we had time to swing by the O.H.S.O. Eatery + nanoBrewery for some catching up over brews and a little food.  OHSO had a handful of house-made beers on tap as well as plenty of other options from around Arizona.  There were some really interesting and wonderful beers that I sampled such as the White Chocolate Ale out of Sonoran Brewing (third from left) in Scottsdale and OHSO's own Roasted Apricot Nitro (far right).  I think my favorite may have been the Coconut Joe Coffee Stout (second from left) out of Papago Brewing, also in Scottsdale.  The roasted malt and coffee flavors were nicely accented by the hints of coconut for a refreshing variation on a dark coffee beer!

Moving on to the food, I ordered a signature dish at OHSO, the gnocchi bolognese.  The potato pasta had plenty of cheese mixed in with the beef and sausage bolognese.  The basil added a little freshness to keep the dish from being too rich.  The single plate of it filled me up and could easily be ordered as a dish to pass around and share.  I'm going to have to remember this idea for later, because it was delicious!  Nothing like a good brewpub to get a trip going.  Cheers!
