Cincinnati's finest beers to be brewed where they were born

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - It's the beer grandma and grandpa grew up on.
 
"Our goal is to bring back that heritage and that tradition and make Cincinnati a brewing Mecca like it was once before," said Greg Hardman, President and CEO of Christian Moerlein Brewing Company.
 
Hudepohl Draft Beer, Little Kings Cream Ale and Burger Sparkling Ale -- Cincinnati's finest brews are coming back to the city they were born in.
 
"We're extremely excited to be bringing brewing traditions back to the Over-The-Rhine brewery district," Hardman said.
 
After years of being brewed out of state, Christian Moerlein  Brewing Co. is bringing its operations to Over-The-Rhine's historic brewery district, where Christian Moerlein, a German immigrant, brewed his first beer back in the 1800's, when Over-The-Rhine was a hot bed for beer making.
 
"This will be the first time that Moerlein has been brewed in the Over-the-Rhine brewery district since the inception of Prohibition in 1919," Hardman said.
 
The brewery will be in old Husman's potato chip company building, a 125,000 sq. ft. structure on Moore St, they'll sublease about 40 percent of the space to start off.
 
"This will enable us to grow out into this facility in the future," Hardman said.
 
In addition to bringing some of Cincinnati's finest beers back home, the new brewery will also be a boon for the local economy.
 
"Initially we should have up to 25 jobs at this new facility, we'll be locating our new corporate headquarters here," Hardman said.
 
"We do anticipate that this brewing facility and the tap room that will eventually be part of it, will be a Mecca for tourism," said Mike Morgan of the Over-The-Rhine Foundation.
 
Brewing operations are scheduled to begin in 2011.
