Cincinnati Beer Baron’s Hall of Fame Induction at Christian Moerlein Tap Room
– Saturday, November 16 from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm
The next three Cincinnati Beer Barons to be inducted into the Hall of Fame are John Kauffman, Friedrich Schmidt and Heinrich Schmidt:
The Kauffman Brewery was located in the 1600 block of Vine and Moore streets. It was founded in 1844, and grew to be the fourth largest brewery in Cincinnati. Kauffman was shuttered during Prohibition, but the malt house of the nineteenth century brewery has been reborn as the Tap Room of the Christian Moerlein production brewery where the event will be held. (The Beer Baron Hall of Fame is housed at the Moerlein Lager House.)
The Schmidt Brothers Brewery was founded in 1852 as the St. Louis Brewery. The Schmidt’s owned the Box Brewery in the West End before purchasing this brewery in the 100 block of East McMicken (then Hamilton Road) in 1875. Later their brewery was known as the Crown Brewery.
The cost to attend the event is $25.00 per person and includes lunch. According to the press release we received, the “Beer Baron Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are also a fundraiser for the Cincinnati Brewing Heritage Trail. Once complete, the Cincinnati Brewing Heritage Trail will be a world-class urban heritage trail. It will consist of interactive, historically marked routes through downtown, Over-the-Rhine, Clifton Heights and other Cincinnati neighborhoods that will tell the story of Cincinnati’s rich brewing history and the German-Americans who helped define the culture and image of Zinzinnati. Proceeds from the admission fee and a percentage of proceeds of beer sales go to the Brewery District CURC specifically for the Cincinnati Heritage Trail.”
