CINCINNATI — Rhinegeist Brewing is planning a day-long celebration on June 25 to celebrate its third year in business.
The brewery, located at 1910 Elm St. in Over-the-Rhine, plans to offer rarity beers, a new brew, live music, DJs and food by Dutch’s Larder from noon until 2 a.m. that day. Children will be allowed inside the brewery until 8 p.m.
“This year, for our birthday, we want people to experience Rhinegeist like never before,” said Rhinegeist co-founder Bryant Goulding. “All of your favorites will be available, but we have a ton of surprises up our sleeve, including a bevy of new beers and rarities. Our spaces will be kitted out in wild Ephemera, with an eye toward summer camp and the great outdoors. We’re hoping to leave people with a sense of awe and wonder, and a newfound pride in what we’ve built together, right here in Cincinnati.”
Goulding opened Rhinegeist, whose name means “Ghost of the Rhine,” with friend Bob Bonder inside of the old Christian Moerlein bottling facility in 2013. The pair originally met while living in San Francisco in 2007. Bonder first moved to Cincinnati and opened Tazza Mia coffee house in 2008; Goulding followed in 2012.
Rhinegeist has since expanded production and distribution at its facility. It most recently opened a rooftop patio on Reds Opening Day this year.
Goulding had simple hopes for the brewery, which he planned to introduce Cincinnati to “West Coast” style beer when it first opened.
“We’re looking at beers that people want to drink on a daily basis that have a lot of flavor to them,” he said.
