Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. is opening its doors to visitors during Taste of Cincinnati. They are currently putting the finishing touches on their Tap Room and will be opening up their cavernous beer cellars to curious visitors.
They advertised for volunteer "Beer Meisters" to lead the tours, and I jumped at the chance. I'm all about Cincinnati, and I happen to really enjoy their beer as well. One perk of attending Beer Meister Orientation? Beer samples!!! Here is a picture of me with a sample of their Hefeweizen ale, which is called 7. It's a south German style wheat beer with a hint of banana. Quite delicious and definitely my favorite.
I don't have much in the way of pictures because I was focused on listening and learning the content and the expectations of the tour guides. But, I couldn't help but take a couple pics.
You can't truly experience this unless you come out in person. Want the details?
Christian Moerlein Brewery is located at 1621 Moore St in Over the Rhine. They are offering tours during Taste of Cincinnati 2013, and will have their new Tap Room open with beer for sale.
During Taste, busses will provide transportation between Fountain Square and the brewery. You can register for the tour at the Christian Moerlein Beer Garden on Fountain Square.
Tours are free of charge and are estimated to take about half an hour (allow an hour for travel time if taking the free bus shuttle). They are running tours from noon to 8pm on both Saturday and Sunday, and from noon-6pm on Monday/Memorial Day. Bring money for beer. I promise you'll want some.
Hope to see you there!
