It’s hard to imagine what we would do with our Friday nights had Prohibition not been repealed 75 years ago. Would we stay at home and indulge in reality show marathons? Would we have to rely strictly on wit and charm as social primer? Thankfully, we don’t have to fret about such social nightmares and Christian Moerlein Brewing Company commemorates this saving grace in American history by ceremonially tapping a new beer at the Donauschwaben Haus in Colerain Township.
The company hails the new Moerlein Emancipator as “a German-style Doppelbock featuring six varieties of uniquely blended malts creating a robust dark lager with a toasted character and complex hints of caramel and toffee.” The ceremony also offers live music, German food, raffles and prizes. Local artist Jim Effler, who painted the Moerlein Emancipator Doppelbock artwork, will be on hand to sign the limited edition posters available for a donation to the German-American Citizens League. The ceremony lasts 5-10 p.m. Friday, with the first tapping at 6:30 sharp. Free admission and parking. Beer will be available in six packs and on draft.
