Local Beer Blog Spotlight

This week’s Local Beer Blog Spotlight covers two weeks since Carla was traveling last week. We’ll have a Traveling Tuesday post on one of the brew pubs she visited there up soon. In the mean time, you can check out the better beer news that happened while she was gone.

Cheers and here’s to better beer!

Breaking News: Kevin Moreland Announces New OTR Brewpub

The wait is finally over. It’s been in the wind for the last few weeks that Kevin Moreland is leaving Lisetermann/Triple Digit in January, but he’s been quiet about what’s next. The Cincinnati Business Courier has broken the story, and it’s a darn good one. Old St. Paul’s, which had been condemned not too long ago, is going to be the home of Taft’s Ale House. Kevin, who is the first to say that he doesn’t know anything about the restaurant business is teaming up with investor David Williams, a UC graduate, and New York City restauranteur David Kassling, owner of Tri-Tip Grill, who operates locations in Rockefeller Center and Grand Central Station.

We’ll have more as the place is built over the next few months. It’s targeted to open in Fall, 2014. Until then, check out the Business Courier’s story. Until then, go to their website, but do it with your smartphone handy. Enter your phone number and follow the instructions. It’s kind of neat.
