Moerlein: Streetcar a Factor in New Brewery

Posted on Updated on

This week’s Soapbox has this story about the Moerlein microbrewery being built in the Central Riverfront Park.  From the article:

Hardman also says that the Moerlein Lager House will be connected to historic Over-the-Rhine through the Cincinnati Streetcar which is scheduled to start construction in fall 2010 and begin operations approximately one year after the brewpub opens.

“The streetcar is a great vehicle that will enhance development and link us to Over-the-Rhine and Uptown,” Hardman said.  “When you can hook up a world-class park with the University of Cincinnati, and everything in between, it will be a great economic driver.  While the streetcar was not the only factor in our decision making process, it was certainly one of the reasons we wanted to locate in both of these areas.”

    If Moerlein has an extremely busy night at the Lager House in the Riverfront Park, they can always use the Streetcar to deliver extra kegs from their OTR brewery to the Lager House.🙂

    Great to see all the support for the Cincy streetcar. Baltimore’s system is a little further off, but hopefully we can learn some lessons from your implementation.
