The sweet summer season has come to an and, but the al fresco Outpost at Over-the-Rhine's HomeMakers Bar is still open — and all cozied up for some fall fun.
Over the summer, HomeMakers transformed the space behind their bar into their own outdoor drinking and dining destination — the Outpost, with a vintage Airstream trailer bar and a string-lit garden patio, and teamed up with Cincinnati Music Accelerator for entertainment.
But the vintage Airstream has packed up and moved back home, and HomeMakers has welcomed a different kind of bev bar on wheels, via a collab with Fifty West Brewery's WV beer bus. The patio is sporting a new autumnal look for the new season, thanks to the Art Academy and Urban Sites, in addition to fall cocktails and comforting new menu additions. In a press release, the HomeMakers crew tells guests to expect some exciting pop-ups with other Queen City makers.
Looking towards the holiday season, HomeMakers is in the process of compiling recipes for a "HomeMakers Guide to Entertaining," which they will introduce a few of their top holiday cocktail recipes and are asking guests to submit their go-to favorite dip recipes.
"Have a go-to-never-fail-dip recipe you make for every get together? Submit your recipe starting October 19th and get a chance to be featured in our Guide to Entertaining and get automatically entered in our Dip Off," the press release reads.
The Dip Off winner will receive a holiday price basket and their recipe will featured on HomeMakers holiday menu.
And as the holiday season approaches, keep in mind that the team behind HomeMakers offers private bartenders for your events or gatherings, send an email to [email protected] to learn more.
