Fleischmann Saloon & Brewery  (1834-1841)

In 1834 Karl Ludwig Fleischmann began brewing beer to supply his saloon a few blocks south on Main Street, and by 1836 was partnered with a man named Camille Agneil in the Bavarian Brewery. The construction of his lager brewery and cellars had financially over-extended Fleischmann, and he was forced to sell the business in 1841. Fleischmann’s Bavarian Brewery is rumored to have been the first Cincinnati brewery to have produced lager beer.
