Galeamopus has arrived at Rhinegeist!
The Jurassic period is thundering into Rhinegeist Brewery. Cincinnati Museum Center and Rhinegeist have partnered to present a spectacle never seen before. Head over to Rhinegeist this spring and summer to visit Galeamopus and grab a pint of Brittlebrain, an effervescent, fruity and slightly spicy Belgian Style Golden Ale brewed in anticipation of the unveiling of Cincinnati’s newest icon.
As Union Terminal enters the final months of its historic restoration, Cincinnati Museum Center explored opportunities to showcase some of its incredible collections as a taste of what’s to come in a transformed Cincinnati Museum Center. Only one place had the reputation and space big enough to take on such a massive object. Rhinegeist Brewery, a Cincinnati institution itself, is excited to welcome the unexpected, providing a moment of wow and showcasing CMC’s unique brand of learning and exploration to new audiences.
Cincinnati’s newest icon will be at Rhinegeist throughout the summer before moving into the future Dinosaur Hall in Union Terminal.
