CINCINNATI — Rhinegeist Brewery has a lot to celebrate during its daylong Three Years of Thirst anniversary party Saturday.

“It’s been another hell of a year and a hell of a three years,” said Rhinegeist president Bob Bonder. He and business partner Bryant Goulding opened Rhinegeist in June 2013 inside of the former Christian Moerlein Brewing bottling factory at 1910 Elm St. in Over-the-Rhine.

The company, which started with five employees, now boasts 150 people on its payroll to sustain significant increases in the production and sales of its beer. It capped off a $10 million facility expansion with the opening of a rooftop bar and patio on Reds Opening Day.
