Bay of Bengal Taproom Launch

From Facebook:

Here it comes a prowlin’….

Bay of Bengal Double IPA is BACK!

Get your hands on the 6 pack cans in the Taproom on Thursday September 7th. We’ll also have some of the DIPA on tap so come grab a cold one and stick around for Last Call Trivia while you’re here! We heard they even have some bonus questions for us this week…with prizes!

Bay of Bengal is aggressively hopped, yet surprisingly delicate, this Double India Pale Ale offers a juxtaposition of two opposing forces. Crack open a can. Cry out with a roar. Revel in the partnership of the ferocious and the serene.

Brewing Heritage Trail Crowdfunding Launch Event

From Facebook:

Cincinnati is a city built on beer, but the story has never been fully told. Help us build the Brewing Heritage Trail to share our stories of beer barons, beer brewers, and beer drinkers with the world! The Trail shares the story of America and our city through the lens of beer with wayfinding and signage, public art, a smartphone app, and guided tours, to drive economic redevelopment. We have raised most of the funding to build the first segment this summer, and need your help to complete it! Go here to find out more and donate: http://igg.me/at/brewingheritagetrail

Join us for this FREE launch events, where guests can view displays of the Brewing Heritage Trail installations as well as support the Brewing Heritage Trail by donating to the crowdfunding campaign, purchasing raffle tickets for a prize basket given away that day, and purchasing half-price tickets for historic brewery tours in Over-the-Rhine. The event will include free short tours into the historic cellars below the tap room and a portion of every beer sold will be donated to the Trail.

Schutzenfest Kolsch Release Party

From Facebook:

Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. partnered with the Kolping Cincinnati to produce a new beer in honor of the 150th anniversary of Schützenfest: Schützenfest Kölsch Ale.

Schützenfest is held to remember a skilled marksman who defended a young child and village from an eagle attack. It has been celebrated in Cincinnati since 1866.

“It’s a great honor to be part of such a traditional Germanic festival — especially one that has been here for 150 years,” brewery Vice President of Brewing Eric Baumann said in a prepared statement. “We want this to be an approachable beer for everybody, and for it to be something more unique than your traditional German lager. Kölsch is one of the oldest, most traditional German ales. You’re going to get a really nice, lager-like ale. We’re going to use a traditional German Kölsch yeast – so we’re actually bringing in a new yeast strain for the beer. This beer is all about letting the yeast and malt shine through so you get a crisp, clean-drinking German ale.”
