CINCINNATI — The Garage Brewed Moto Show is back and better than ever. The free motorcycle show, provided by volunteers of the Cincinnati Café Racer club, returns to Rhinegeist Brewery (1910 Elm Street), on January 28th and will take place from 12:00 p.m. to midnight.
Those who attended last year should be eager to return, as an entirely new crop of bikes will be featured this year, many built specifically for this event. Last year’s show featured bikes from builders located around the region, but this year, the show will feature 50 custom bikes from builders all around the country, including builders from Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago and more.
Participants ranging from professional builders to two-car-garage enthusiasts will compete for unique growler trophies, or “grophies,” as they try to win over esteemed judges. The special judges are Larry Fletcher of Chicago’s Ton-up club, Scott Hablieb (promoter of the Kentucky Kick-down show) and Dani Pajak of Cleveland’s Disowned Customs and the Esquire TV show “Wrench against the machine”. Special voting stations will allow all attendees the opportunity to choose their favorite bikes, and eventually crown the champion with the ultimate prize of “Fan Favorite.”
Rhinegeist Brewery, located in the historic Over-the-Rhine Brewery District, provides the perfect backdrop to show off the country’s best motorcycle builders. This year, there will be even more floor space as bikes will also be featured in Rhinegeist’s new event center. Attendees can sip their favorite local craft beers, including a special Rhinegeist beer created for the event, called “Apex”, while they peruse custom-built bikes, record-holding race bikes, antique motorcycles, and motorcycle accessory vendors from around the country.
