Moerlein brings centuries of craft tradition to Ohio Brew Week
German immigrant Christian Moerlein established his brewery in 1853 in the Brewery District of Over-the-Rhine in Cincinnati. It grew to be a world-renowned brewery that helped put American brewing on the map in the late 1800s.
Jump forward to the modern era, and the Moerlein brand became one of the pioneers of a new craft beer movement in the 1980s.
Rescued in 2004 by Cincinnati beer baron and Ohio University graduate Gregory Hardman, Moerlein continues the grand tradition of brewing excellence started in the 1850s at the production facility and taproom in Over-the-Rhine and at the world-class Moerlein Lager House at Cincinnati’s riverfront.
Moerlein has proudly brought back Cincinnati’s heritage breweries and continues to expand production as the brewery responsible for rescuing the city’s brewing history.
The Moerlein Lager House is the crown jewel of the Queen City’s brewing world and is a tribute to the brewery’s founder, Christian Moerlein; as well as the other beer barons that helped create Cincinnati’s beer history.
