CINCINNATI - Wiedemann beer will be back in Cincinnati on May 17.
Relaunched in Newport, Ky. in August, the new Geo. Wiedemann Company will begin selling a reformulated lager at Arnold's Bar and Grill, located at 210 East 8th Street, downtown.
As part of the launch of the sale of the beer in Ohio, Jim Tarbell will deliever the first keg of Wiedemann's to Arnold's by horse-drawn wagon, according to a press release from the beer company. A tapping ceremony will take place at 6 p.m.
The first 100 people who attend the event will receive a signed certificate and customers at Arnold's will be able to buy $2 Wiedemann's while supplies last, the release goes on to say.
"We're thrilled to join with Arnold's – a leading purveyor of local craft brews and an enthusiastic support of Cincinnati's brewing culture – in this tribute to George Wiedemann's legacy of fine beer and innovative brewing," Jon Newberry, the new owner of Wiedemann's, stated the release.
The original Wiedemann Brewery in Newport, Ky. was shut down 30 years ago. Jon and Betsy Newberry acquired the Wiedemann trademark to rebrand, and brew, the beer.
