OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) - You can help vote Cincinnati's Rhinegeist the Best New Brewery in the country in a new poll.

The Over-the-Rhine craft brewery announced Wednesday it was nominated as one of the newspaper's 10Best Readers' Choice New Breweries in the nation.

It currently ranks second out of 19 other breweries, only behind WeldWerks Brewing Company in Greeley, Colo.

"Cincinnati beer hounds head to the historic Over-the-Rhine Brewery District, where Rhinegeist ("Ghost of the Rhine" in German) set up shop the old Moerlein bottling plant," USA Today wrote.

"The 25,000 square-foot facility, which dates back to 1895, oozes character, and the lively taproom is frequently packed with festive groups playing ping pong and cornhole while watching big games on TVs.

"In addition to a wide variety of beers, Rhinegeist also churns out dry ciders made with juices from the Pacific Northwest."

Voting is open until 11:59 a.m. February 29.
