Great new location near river and ball parks. Great service. Good selection and brewing on site. Hope they do new beers. I will come back and try food. Rating may change when I do.

I and my ladyfriend Nancy had dinner there yesterday, and we found the place marvelous! Yes, the food is a tad pricey, but itís certainly worth it! And the beer selections of both Moerlein and other brews is fantastic!

If you are in Cincinnati you should try to add this to your list of stops. It is a big place, right on the river. We went before a Reds game (it is right next to the ball park). They have a nice selection of their own beers and a solid guest list of nice geek beers. The menu is extensive and our food was all very good. It feels more like a big chain place than a brewpub, but thatís not always a bad thing.

Damn, I wish I could give ambiance a higher amount because this place has it. Beautifully constructed,on the river, with a view of everything and within walking distance of both stadiums. The Moerlein beers served on site are brewed down stairs in 33 bbl system. Most of the taps are Moerlein products and if you become nostalgic for Cincy beers from the 50 & 60(which I never do) this is the place to go. They have a guest tap list(25 or so at this point) that includes some quality Belgians and midwest micros. If you sometimes find yourself as the craft beer expert in a group, this is a place you are going to have to go, because somebody is sure to ask you about it.

Been here twice this year before Reds games. First time we sat outside with a gorgeous view of the river. Had the Cuban with garlic fries which was very good. My beer was the Se7en Hefeweizen which went down easily on a warm day with just a little citrus hint. Only complaint was slow service due to being short-staffed, so I didnít get a chance to get a taste sample (which I like to do if Iím trying a draft that Iíve never had). Second time we ate the bar and the bartender was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the food and beer. I had the mettwurst (1st time I ever tried it) which was outstanding along with the Golden Helles. I would probably consider this a go-to place for me when I go to downtown Cincinnati, especially before/after a Reds game.

Moerlein Lager House is the shiny new gem of the Banks project in downtown Cincinnati along the River. Having seen a million photos and articles already, this place pretty much met my expectations, which were, to be fair, pretty high. Itís huge, with bars and kitchens on both levels, a wrap-around patio on both levels, high ceilings, big windows with great views- pretty incredible place. It was crowded at 1:30 on a Saturday, when I visited. The staff is clearly new, and didnít know much about the beers; our waiter brought out a sampler to one person at our table, and he had no idea which beer was which. I knew way more about the Moerlein beers than he or any other staff we interacted with, which isnít good. The food is good, and on the high end of the brewpub price spectrum. For that matter, the beers seemed a bit overpriced for such a familiar local brand. I guess they have to pay for this place somehow.

Stopped in on an early saturday afternoon. Street parking, which means we had to park a few blocks away. The place has beautiful architecture, modern decor. We went straight up stairs and sat at the bar. Looks like they had about 30 taps upstairs and another 30 downstairs. The service was very good. The bartenders all seemed knowledgeable about beer and the breweryís history. Pricing was pretty good, as well.

I really enjoyed my visit here. This brewpub is located downtown right next to the Reds ballpark. It is quite large, but also quite crowded when I was there. They have around 6-7 house taps and guest taps and bottles. I tried the IPA and pale ale, which I thought were really phenomenal. On their bottle list, they had Alesmith My Bloody Valentine (which has been a want of mine for quite some time...although now it is bottled, so easier to find I guess, but nonetheless, I was super excited to be able to order it). The guest offerings are nothing crazy, but include plenty of solid local beers and imports. The food menu is quite expansive and the food was really tasty. I got the smothered chicken and it was excellent and unfortunately too filling because I really wanted to try dessert too :-) I had no problems with the service during my visit. Definitely worth a stop while in Cincinnati and I would like to come by again.

This place looked really nice inside and out, while the food was just as so. While having occasional rare taps, the variety itself is pretty impressive.
