For this winter season the Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. and the German-American Citizens League are having a ceremonial keg tapping party of Christian Moerlein’s Christkindl Winter Warmer Ale, a large malt-bodied brew with some chocolaty sweetness, subtle spice flavors and a hoppy finish. This is a celebration of this city’s German heritage and a fight against seasonal depression. Christian Moerlein’s Christkindl Winter Warmer Ale is brewed and released annually and is inspired by the German spirit of holiday gift giving, so admission is free!
The festivities begin at 4 p.m. with the keg tapping at 7 p.m. and the party will go until midnight at Cincinnati Central Turners Club House, a quaint lake-view clubhouse at 2200 Pinney Lane, Mt. Healthy. The clubhouse itself is worth the trip. The house looks like it is designed by men for men with two bars — one on the first floor another in the basement — and congregating areas with card tables, folding chairs and tables sitting in front of a wood burning fireplace. Some shelter, a natural view, a place to sit and a place to set your beer, and maybe some old timers. Sounds like a great Friday.
