Christian Moerlein, an immigrant from Bavaria who came to America in 1841 and established the Christian Moerlein Brewing Company in 1853 in Cincinnati, became the first and only inductee in the first class of Beer Barons named to the Beer Barons Hall of Fame at the Moerlein Lager House at The Banks district in Downtown Saturday.

Members of the Moerlein family (including the family itself along and family of those who worked at the Moerlein Brewery or had other historical ties to the brewery) was on hand for the presentation.

Local historian of German Cincinnati Don Heinrich Tolzmann released his new biography, "Christian Moerlein - The Man and His Brewery".  Tolzmann also was be the featured speaker.  Greg Hardman, President and CEO of the Christian Moerlein Brewing Company and Managing Partner of the Moerlein Lager House, wrote the book's foreword.

Proceeds from tickets to the event benefit the Brewery District's Heritage Trail Project.

A history committee convened by the non-profit Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation (BDCURC) nominated Moerlein to the Hall of Fame, which was created to pay homage to the numerous Beer Barons throughout Cincinnati's history who have had an impact on Cincinnati's brewing industry and on the city in which they prospered. The committee has also just announced that John Hauck and Ludwig Hudepohl will become the next inductees into the Hall of Fame at a ceremony in late Fall, 2012.  Proceeds from that event will also benefit BDCURC.
