Unfortunately, the answer to your question is probably Northern Kentucky. I know the Cork and Bottle has it, as well as some stores around Buttermilk Pike. Should also be able to find it at most Greater Cincinnati Kroger locations.

OK, I will kick a little more life into this thread. Those in the know, please give me some chronology on the following:
Hudepohl 14K
Burger Beer - Brewed from artisian well water (right next to the Ohio river). Just trust Waite Hoyt.
Bavarian Beer
Wiedemann Beer - Newport
Schoenling

According to my family, my great-grandfather immigrated to Cincinnati to be brewmaster at the original Christian Moerlein brewery. If I read the news right, the building just burnt to the ground today.

How many more brewers from the past can you name in Cincinnati? Let's have a contest. Name the brewers or the machine tool companies which made Cincinnati great. Many of the original German immigrants to Cincinnati worked in the machine tool companies which flourished here, and they liked their beer - thus the many breweries.

The OTR (Over-the-Rhine) area is still named after the German immigrants, though I do not feel many of them would recognize it at all.

At the peak, who had the most, the machine tool companies or the breweries?

Then there is the Boston Beer Company, brewers of Sam Adams and its derivatives. Some of you may not know its founder, Jim Koch is from Cincinnati. He has taken the MicroBrewery to the next level. Old World, hand-crafted beers, if you believe the baloney.

Today, 66% of Boston Beer Company beers are brewed right here in good old Cincinnati. The man is smart. As I go today and suddenly see Burger, Hudepohl, Wiedemann, and even Christian Moerlein in the stores from Cincinnati's glorious beer past, I have to wonder. The labels are hard to decipher, but I will bet somewhere behind them is Jim Koch.

Reminds me of the old P&G methods, Tide vs Cheer, Crest vs Gleem, etc. Put your own competitive brands out there, because shelf space is the answer. If you claim sufficient self space, the likelihood a consumer will pick up one of your products increases. Don't believe me? Take a close look the next time you go to the store.

DO realize that strategy has been abandoned to a certain extent. Gleem is gone as is Prell as well as a number of the 2nd tier brands. And many retailers are preferring to fill their shelf space with their own private labels.

And also remember that you are often paying the retailer for the shelf space these days (except WalMart). Can you sell enough of the second tier to make it worth while.

Tide and Cheer is one major exception. P&G has been very successful in differentiating the brand as substantially different products. Tide has been the strong detergent that gets out stains. Cheer gently coaxed out the dirt and leaves a refreshing smell. The hidden persuaders, right?

I will admit that it is kind of fun to see small brewers rise and take market share from the large brewers. Of course, you have to remain somewhat skeptical of who is making what as the G. Heilman beer are made by Miller Brewing on a contract basis.

Remember Wiedemann's beer (sp?) and Burger beer? Do they still have Schoenling beer in Cinti?
