As this article states , "For a century and a half, the Christian Moerlein name has been synonymous with Cincinnati’s storied brewing tradition." Well it appears that the Christian Moerlein Brewing Company is finally solidifying its local presence in the form of the Moerlein Lager House - a restaurant/brewery that will be part of the Cincinnati Riverfront Park (adjacent to The Banks development). Needless to say, this is great news for so many reasons. The plans sound impressive, situated on the river next to the ballpark and with a mind towards reviving the local beer culture and heritage which the Queen City once thrived upon.
From the mouth of company President and CEO Greg Hardman himself:
“Our mission is to breathe new life and vigor into the grand brewing tradition that made Cincinnati one of the world’s greatest brewing meccas over a century ago. The Moerlein Lager House in Cincinnati Riverfront Park will become an economic driver that will significantly propel Cincinnati’s heritage tourism industry. Patrons will experience what is authentic and historically unique about this city and its compelling history with every visit to the Moerlein Lager House.” For more information, here's another article for your perusal.
I love it. Spring 2011 cannot come soon enough.
