Wiedemann Beer is making a big comeback in Newport where it was once brewed. Now, apparently, it’s going to be brewed up in Walton. Click here to read more about it.
I’ve had a few Wiedemann beers in my life as my ex-father-in-law used to drink it. I’m not a big beer drinker and all I can remember about it is getting headaches every time I drank it. That’s just me. I could compare it to Milwaukee’s Best but I won’t.
Wiedemann plans on expanding in Northern Kentucky, but right now it’s on tap at Pompilio’s Italian Restaurant in Newport. Speaking of Pompilio’s, what’s up with that iceberg lettuce they serve?
I thought by now they would have replaced it with a better salad, but I was there a few weeks ago with some friends for lunch and they’re still serving it.
Now Pompilio’s is a fine restaurant, but do you know the nutritional value of iceberg lettuce? There is no nutritional value to iceberg lettuce. It’s like eating a bowl of water.
While eating a little bit of it while I was there, I thought about having a conversation with our waitress about iceberg lettuce but I didn’t know the friends I was with all that well, so I kept my mouth shut.
I hope I’m not sounding mean and negative here today. Really, enjoy your Wiedemann with your iceberg lettuce.
