Prior to the Prohibition Era, OTR was at the heart of Cincinnati’s rich brewing history. At one point the Christian Moerlein Brewing Company took up three city blocks dedicated solely to producing that fine golden beverage. Morelein is back today and its new place on the Banks along with other microbreweries look to make Cincinnati a place for those purveyors to thrive once again.
