Rhinegeist Brewery takes its name from Cincinnati's historic Over-the-Rhine Brewery District. Built within the skeleton of the old 1895 Moerlein bottling plant, it's fitting that Rhinegeist translates to “Ghost of the Rhine." The original Moerlein bottling plant was the city's largest brewery extending more than three city blocks. Rhinegeist's founder Bob Bonder explored the defunct warehouse in 2007 and immediately saw potential, and that's how Rhinegeist Brewery was born.
Today, the historic bottling plant has been revitalized with house-brewed Rhinegeist beers and a taproom with cornhole, Ping-Pong and TVs. The brewery's classic beer is Truth Indian pale ale, which boasts brilliant hops, tropical fruit aromas and a dry finish. Cougar blonde ale is a bright selection with a balanced yet dry flavor and a wonderful malt character. Another popular selection is Knowledge Imperial India Pale Ale with its dank sap, pine and grapefruit notes, zesty punch and chewy hops.
Other Rhinegeist beers include Mosaic Seasonal Pale Ale, the limited release Press Tart Berliner-style Weisse fruit beer, the seasonal Hustle IPA and the seasonal Squirrel nut brown ale. Rhinegeist beers are currently distributed in select states around Ohio, but you can always find them online and have them shipped to your door.
