About Christian Moerlein Brewing Company
German immigrant Christian Moerlein established his brewery in 1853 in the Brewery District of Over-the-Rhine in Cincinnati. It grew to be a world-renowned brewery that helped put American brewing on the map in the late 1800s.
Jump forward to the modern era, and Christian Moerlein was the first American beer to pass the German Beer Purity Law of 1516 known as the Reinheitsgebot. Relaunched in 1981, Christian Moerlein was also one of the pioneer craft beers of today’s craft beer movement.
Purchased in 2004 by Greater Cincinnati resident Gregory Hardman, Moerlein continues the grand tradition of brewing excellence started in 1853 at its production facility and taproom in Over-the-Rhine and at the world-class Moerlein Lager House in Cincinnati’s Smale Riverfront Park between Great American Ballpark and Paul Brown Stadium on the Ohio River. The Christian Moerlein brewing team has proudly brought back Cincinnati’s brewing heritage and legacy beer brands like Hudepohl, Little Kings and Burger. Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. is the first craft brewery to rescue a city’s brewing history and legacy beer brands.
The Moerlein Lager House Restaurant and Brewery is the crown jewel of the Queen City’s brewing world and is a tribute to the brewery’s founder, Christian Moerlein; as well as the other beer barons that helped create Cincinnati’s brewing legacy.
