Cincinnati Roots 

The story of Boston Lager begins here in Cincinnati. Jim Koch, a Cincinnati native, approached his father about his idea to create a uniquely American beer that would take on the stale imports being shipped to America. Jim's father gave him the family recipe for the beer that became Boston Lager. Jim brewed this beer on his kitchen stovetop in 1984 and launched what became the American craft beer revolution.  In 1997, Jim purchased the Hudepolh-Schoenling brewery on Central Parkway and it became a main production brewery for the company. Multiple generations of Koch brewers had worked at this brewery. We're still brewing here and with the opening of the taproom in November of 2018, we have a way to brew small batch, experimental beers that sit well alongside favorites like Boston Lager, Octoberfest, and Wicked Easy. Come in and have a pint!
