Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. is one of Cincinnati’s craft brewing originators, tracing its roots back to 1853. The Bunbury Music Festival is an indie rock music event that’s only two years old, but is taking the country by storm because of its amazing lineup (this year’s includes fun., MGMT, Divine Fits, Cake and the National). Well, it just made sense for these two Cin-City powerhouses to team up, and team up they have with the Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale.
“Bunbury Music Festival has already become one of the must-see concerts in Cincinnati and in the country, so we’re excited to partner with them and create a special beer in honor of this great summer event,” said Greg Hardman, chief executive officer of Christian Moerlein.
Christian Moerlein’s Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale is ready to take center stage at Cincinnati’s greatest summer concert, and the first tapping of the beer will be on Monday, July 1 at 6:00 p.m. at the Moerlein Lager House with Brewmaster Richard Dube.
Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale will be a limited release, available at the 2013 Bunbury Music Festival (July 12-14). This new beer showcases the unique characteristics of a traditional Ale, while boasting the flavors and aromas of German noble hops. The malty backbone imparted by Pilsner and Munich malts is accented by delicate floral and fruity notes, thanks to a generous late kettle hop addition and dry-hopping. The crisp, refreshing result would make Christian Moerlein’s Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale a headliner at any venue.
“What better way to celebrate our second annual event than with a special creation like the Bunbury Bavarian Pale Ale,” said Bill Donabedian, festival organizer. “This is just the type of unique offering fans and attendees of Bunbury can expect, and I can’t wait to try it myself.”
