UPDATE Thursday, May 9th at 5:00 pm – “Uwanafix” Grand Cru Tapping at Moerlein Lager House
The Moerlein Lager House will be tapping its first Belgian Golden Strong style ale on Thursday, May 9. It will clock in over 11%, which is higher than the BJCP guidelines for this style…but we think you can handle it.

Our “Uwanafix” Grand Cru is a complex marriage of fruity esters, spicy phenolics, and higher alcohol flavors with a soft malt backbone. It has a light to medium body, but with a distinctive drier finish. The hop character imparted by Styrian Goldings is rather low, but the floral note is still undeniable. We’re working on getting back to our usual first Monday tappings. But we hope you’ll join us for this special brew on Thursday!

Molly Wellmann is a huge supporter of Cincinnati, its businesses and fresh local ingredients. To celebrate this philosophy, the Japp’s Annex will be carrying all-local tri-state craft beers. Japp’s will be teaming up with its sister bar Neons (who have been leading the city in craft beer selection) to make sure each one of their 12 taps is pouring a delicious local draft. To celebrate this new initiative, Japp’s will be hosting an all-Cincinnati beer “Listermann Triple Digit Draft Take-over” on Friday May 10 at 5 p.m. Triple Digit will also live tap a “cask” of the their Chicow!
