New Years Eve: Christian Moerlein at Arnold's

As previously announced, Christian Moerlein has returned to Over the Rhine and will soon begin brewing its beer in the neighborhood again for the first time since the start of Prohibition. Right now Christian Moerlein's beers are contract brewed at breweries in other cities. This is certainly an exciting moment for Over the Rhine and hopefully a sign of good things to come for Cincinnati's brewing culture. At one time Cincinnati was home to 18 different breweries and had one of the largest per capita beer consumption rates in the country! With so many exciting new things coming to downtown in the next few years (including the streetcar, casino, and banks projects), the addition of a few new breweries would certainly make things that much better.
To start the new year off right, Christian Moerlein will be tapping their inagural Over the Rhine brew at Arnold's on 8th street. At the stroke of midnight Arnold's guests will have the privelage of sampling the first batch of Christian Moerlein beer brewed in OTR in nearly 100 years! Their inagural brew, Arnold's 1861 Porter, is dedicated to Arnold's 150th Anniversary that starts in 2011.
