Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. Launches Moerlein Citra Pale Ale

Cincinnati, OH –  The Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. will be introducing Pacer: a new Citra Pale Ale at Super Firkin Saturday. Their second-annual Super Firkin Saturday will be in their Malt House Taproom at 1621 Moore St on Saturday Feb 4th from 2-6 PM.

Pacer Citra Pale Ale packs an explosive punch of citrus aromatics and notes of tropical fruit backed by an easy-drinking pale body. Slight herbal notes are complemented by a burst of grapefruit and melon from an abundant dry-hopping of Citra hops, creating a pale ale that sets the pace.  Weighing in at 5.0% Alcohol by Volume and 40 IBU’s.  Pacer Citra Pale Ale will be available in 6 pack, 12 oz cans and on draft in 1/2 barrel and 1/6 barrel sizes.

Moerlein Pacer Citra Pale Ale will be available on draft and 6 pack cans in the Taproom and at craft beer retailers starting February 4, 2017, just in time for the big game. Consumers will also get to sample specialty infused Pacer firkins at Super Firkin Saturday.

About Christian Moerlein Brewing Company
The brewery established in 1853 by Christian Moerlein, a German immigrant that prospered as a world renowned master brewer was located in the Brewery District of Over-The-Rhine, Cincinnati, USA. Today Christian Moerlein Brewing Company brews a wide range of craft beers and was the first American beer to pass the German Purity Law of 1516 known as the reinheitsgebot, which states only malt, hops, yeast and water can be used in the brewing of beer. Christian Moerlein is also one of the pioneer brands of today’s craft beer movement and first began selling “better beer”, a precursor of the craft category, in 1981 through the Hudepohl Brewing Company of Cincinnati. Since 2004, Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. has been owned by Gregory Hardman, a greater Cincinnati resident that has been credited with reviving Cincinnati’s grand brewing traditions and current craft beer movement. Christian Moerlein beer is brewed in Cincinnati at both the Moerlein Lager House and its craft beer production brewery in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine Brewery District.

The Moerlein Lager House, which opened in February of 2012 is located in the Smale Riverfront Park, has 28,000 square foot of floor space, a functioning 5,000 barrel capacity brewery with over 800 seats for diners, has two beer gardens that can handle an additional 600 guests (total capacity with beer gardens over 1,400), can produce 4,000 meals a day and boasts 360-degree views of the Cincinnati skyline including the Ohio River, Roebling Suspension Bridge, Great American Ballpark (home to the Cincinnati Reds) and Paul Brown Stadium (home to the Cincinnati Bengals).  The Moerlein Lager House has become a premier destination for craft beer enthusiasts and is a tribute to Cincinnati’s grand brewing traditions and its famed 19th century brewer, Beer Baron Christian Moerlein.
