Rhinegeist is located in the historic Christian Moerlein bottling plant. I think it's cool that they've rehabbed this old space into a new functioning brewery. Massive amount of space in the taproom, they have ping pong, corn hole, and I've heard that on some nights people even play wiffle ball inside the brewery. My only gripes are that I wish they offered a bigger selection of beers on tap and I also wish that the bar was bigger...it's too small and when it's crowded it takes forever to get a beer.

Beer was pretty good but the bar staff were not very friendly and couldn't tell me about their beer.

This is a welcomed brewery on the Cincinnati beer scene. Being a traditional German beer town it is nice to have a craft brewery that is willing to deviate and dapple in a variety of beer styles. The crew at Rhinegeist obviously have vision, creativity and desire to brew outstanding beers. Their Truth IPA is phenomenal as well as their variety of Belgian brews. The atmosphere at Rhinegeist is nothing close to being quaint and intimate, but more industrial and open with much room for expansion, which is most definitely welcome in my books. Rhinegeist is located in the old Hudepohl bottling plant in the Over-The-Rhine area of Cincinnati. Highly recommended. Visit, drink and enjoy!

This place is practically hidden, from me at least. After spotting the parking lot (which is across the street), I had to hunt for which building it was in. After spotting the sign and entering the building, it still felt like I was in the wrong place for some reason.
After climbing something like three floors, we finally entered the vast large open room. Beer garden style table and benches, brewing equipment, kegs. Cornhole boards, and ping pong tables. Everything is in one giant open room with a high ceiling and large roof skylights throughout. You would think with all that space, a larger bar would have been built. It was a Saturday, so there were quite a few people and a line seemed to always be at the bar.
It was a little hot it being summertime with apparently no a/c. I was fine, but the wife wasn't as happy. Only big ass fans above for cooling that I could see.
Beers were pretty decent. I enjoyed the Fiction Belgian pale ale the most (which I left with a crowler). They have large and small growlers for take out. As well as crowlers. I also seen pretzels for purchase, as well as wine for friends you bring that may not be beer drinkers.
