Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. in Cincinnati has commissioned a limited edition Rookwood Pottery stein to commemorate the opening of the Moerlein Lager House. The stein will be unveiled at the brewpub’s grand opening on Feb. 25. It depicts images of the new Moerlein Lager House in Smale Riverfront Park, a street scene at the site of the original Christian Moerlein Brewery in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and early Cincinnati riverfront images including a paddlewheel and a cobblestone road.
“The road symbolizes our journey in Cincinnati and the linking of Over-the-Rhine to the riverfront, as this was the route beer traveled during the middle 19th century to get to far away markets.” Christian Moerlein President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Hardman said in a prepared statement.
The new stein is the fourth in the series of Christian Moerlein steins. The retail price is $250 plus shipping and handling. Each stein comes in a decorative Rookwood cardboard box. Re-issues of the 2007, 2008 and 2010 Moerlein-Rookwood steins also are available. The stein can be purchased by clicking here.
