Wiedemann needs a home.

There's nothing sadder than a great local beer without a home. Abandoned breweries all over Greater Cincinnati used to produce good, unique beers for which Cincinnati is famous.

Included with that list of beers is legendary Wiedemann's Bohemian Special. Newport's famous brew since 1870. The highest volume local brewery ever! Out-of-town owners shut it down in 1983 and another out-of-town owner stopped making Wiedemann altogether in 2006.

There's nothing left of Wiedemann's Brewery now but, unlike some other old brands, Wiedemann's future is bright. It is now back under local ownership for the first time in almost 50 years. We have strong local support from the Wiedemann family. A new brewery is being planned from a small office across the street from the old brewhouse.

Better even than that, though, it will be a Hall of Fame where Wiedie fans and other beer lovers can bring the family, relax and enjoy a variety of tasty handcrafted brews -- Bohemian pilsners, German lagers, hoppy IPAs, yeasty hefeweizens, and new styles our brewmaster is working on. All in a comfortable atmosphere reminiscent of the mom-and-pop taverns that used to serve as the central gathering spots for so many neighborhoods.

We've talked with numerous area beer memorabilia collectors, and they want to share their Wiedemann history in the new brewery and tap room. These pieces are marketing gems from the 50s and 60s heyday of local beer brewing.

So what's this Kickstarter campaign for? We're not really doing this Kickstarter campaign to "pay" for a new brewery. We're raising most of that money the old-fashioned way. And if our campaign exceeds our goal, those extra funds will be put right back into the project.

For the Kickstarter campaign, we're looking for a wave of support for Wiedemann's revival. We want to show our distributors, lenders, potential partners, bar and restaurant owners that there are thousands Wiedie fans out there, willing to take a stand for this legendary beer.

Help us on whatever level or levels that are right for you.

Most of the rewards offered are limited editions, custom-made for this campaign and will not be repeated in the future. We will only make as many as we have to, in order to fill Kickstarter orders. When they're gone, they're gone. It's your chance to obtain another, unique Wiedemann collectible.

We look forward to getting together at our first beer bash, at the new brewery later this year. Until then, we'll be drinking to your health.

Na zdravi

What is a "Brewhemian?"

If you support this campaign for our brewery and you are a fan of our Bohemian Special Brew, then you are a "Brewhemian."

We really appreciate the support you've given us since we brought back Wiedemann's beer and we hope that we can count on you to support us here and spread the word to your friends and family.

All of the rewards in the descriptions below are being created just for you and just for this campaign. We look forward to seeing you wearing your "Brewhemian" gear in the future and we'll know that you were the ones who helped us today.

On social media, use #Brewhemian to let people know.

Enlist Now in the Wiedemann Army

One of the stories we heard from some Wiedemann drinkers was about a club they had back in the day, called The Wiedemann Army, complete with ID cards. (Watch the video as Jon describes it.) We liked that idea and decided to bring it back as part of our customer loyalty program.

Delivery of some of the rewards is dependent on brewery construction and subsequent brewing schedules, all of which are subject to weather, regulatory requirements, and numerous other contingencies lurking around out there.
