    Moerlein Brewing Coming Home to Over-the-Rhine

    The Christian Moerlein Brewing Company is coming home to Cincinnati, announcing plans to open brewing operations in Over-the-Rhine’s historic brewery district for the first time since 1919.

    Moerlein, Hudepohl, Schoenling, Burger and Little Kings will all be coming home to the new OTR facility, which will be located in the former Husman Potato Chip plant on Moore Street just north of Liberty and east of Vine. Initial plans call for minor renovations and a general clean up of the facility so the company can relocate its corporate offices from its current Middletown location. Christian Moerlein plans to employ up to 25 at this location in 2011.

    “We are proud to be part of the continued renaissance and economic development of Over-the-Rhine,” said Greg Hardman President and CEO of Christian Moerlein Brewing Company. The building’s sound infrastructure and historical significance were main considerations in choosing the Over-the-Rhine location.

    157 years ago, brew master Christian Moerlein, an immigrant from Truppach Bavaria, Germany brewed his first beer in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine Brewery District. The Christian Moerlein Brewing Company ended operations in 1920 at the start of Prohibition and did not resume operations after prohibition ended in 1933.

    The Christian Moerlein Brewing Company is the brewer of handcrafted Moerlein Lagers & Ales including Moerlein OTR Ale, Moerlein Lager House, Moerlein Barbarossa Double Dark Lager, and Moerlein Emancipator Doppelbock.
