Are you ready for some football? 

Attention all sports fans. Do you want a high-energy environment? How does a huge bar situated comfortably for ideal television viewing sound? How about a huge selection of beer and fantastic food? Bob Dames, founder and owner of Flipdaddy’s Brilliant Burgers & Craft Beer Bar has raised the bar to create the optimal football experience.

Flipdaddy’s in not your typical sports bar with subpar pub grub and limited beer selction. First, let’s talk beer. Flipdaddy’s offers 36 beers on tap. And because Dames understands and respects his customers’ intelligence, tastes and ability to choose adventurously, this extensive selection is forever rotating to offer different choices. 

What goes better with a great beer than a tantalizingly delicious burger? Dames worked strenously, creating recipe after recipe before finding the perfect combination for his mouth-watering burgers. He uses a proprietary blend of beef that is a combination of brisket, short rib and ground chuck. Not a burger fan? No problem. Flipdaddy’s has a wide selection of appetizers, salads and sandwiches made from fresh and local ingredients. 

“We’re very proud of using local purveyors as much as possible,” says Dames. “We have Davis Creek Meats as our meat supplier. They’re right here in Walton, Kentucky. Pic’s Produce does our produce. They’re down on the market every day handpicking our produce. Klosterman’s bakes our buns. They’re here in town. And there is our cheese guy. He’s local.”

It is not only the food and beer that will keep you coming back for all your sports entertainment. Flipdaddy’s fourth and newest location, which is in the Newport Pavilion, features a spacious outdoor patio with a fire pit, a long indoor bar with plenty of televisions for cheering on your favorite team, and a large, summery garage-door window that, when opened, connects the patio and the bar.

Customer service is key at Flipdaddy’s. Dames has created an atmosphere of respect and friendship that extends throughout his staff, vendors and to his customers. So dare to heighten your football experience and join the Flipdaddy’s family to watch the next big game.
