Celebrating the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition and kicking
off the bock beer season, Moerlein Emancipator Doppelbock was greeted with
rave reviews from all in attendance at the ceremonial first tapping this
past Thursday evening. What a fun crowd and great party! Thank You!
Three fun events to tell you about below (Pre-Bockfest Poster Signing,
Bockfest Blow and Monte Carlo Benefit):
This year's Bockfest Poster signing will occur on Friday at Kaldi’s Café on
Main St., 1204 Main St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. The event will take place
from 3 to 6:30PM with artist Jim Effler who creates the original oil
paintings that become the annual Bockfest Poster. Mr. Effler will be at
Kaldi’s to sign posters and also have the original oil painting of the
poster on display, along with other original oils that have become past
Bockfest posters or brand-art for Christian Moerlein beers (including
Moerlein Emancipator). Bockfest posters from past years will also be
available. Special Moerlein Happy Hour drink prices will be offered by
Kaldi’s throughout the signing.
NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE BOCKFEST BLOW? The Bockfest Blow has become an annual
event where a “gaffer” (A "gaffer" is a glass artist) uses molten glass to
form the grand-prize for best entry in the Bockfest Parade. These are one
a kind priceless art pieces being made in front of your eyes. This year's
Bockfest Blow will occur on this Friday February 15, 2008 at River City
Works, the Art Academy's glass art campus, beginning at 6:30 p.m. River
Works is located in the Pendleton Arts District, at 532 East 12th St.,
Cincinnati. Art Academy students will make the glass stein under the
direction of Main Gaffer and Art Academy professor, Warren Trefz. The
is invited to watch and Admission is free. There is a limited amount of
parking adjacent to the building as well as on the street. The blow will
last until roughly 9:30PM. The event is sponsored by Arnold’s Bar and
Grill. Free food and beer specials will follow the blow at Arnold’s, 210
8th St., Cincinnati, Ohio 45202 (513) 421-6342.
Bockfest is a celebration of bock beer, the Renaissance, Cincinnati brewing
history, Over-the-Rhine and the coming of Spring. Over-the-Rhine is known
for its significant architecture and its bohemian arts scene as well as the
birthplace of German-American culture in Cincinnati. Bockfest has been an
occasion to showcase parts of this proud tradition. The Bockfest parade
trophy created by River City works is one example. Mr. Effler’s artwork is
another. Events and entertainment will occur throughout Bock Fest weekend,
March 7-9, 2008. More information about Bockfest, the Parade, the Blow,

Re: Christian Moerlein Bockfest Kickoff
Yes, I just purchased a case of Moerlein Emancipator Doppelbock. It is
outstanding. Can't wait to try it on tap at Bockfest. The Moerlein
seasonals have all been great. It's just too bad distribution is limited to
the greater Cincinnati area.
