Businessmen buy Oldenberg building

        FORT MITCHELL — A high-powered partnership of area business leaders, led by Kentucky Speedway developer Jerry Carroll, has purchased the Oldenberg Brewery building in Fort Mitchell

        Mr. Carroll, businessman Wayne Carlisle of Fort Thomas, and Cintas Corp. chief executive officer Richard Farmer of Indian Hill closed on the purchase of the property late Friday afternoon.

        Mr. Carroll's partnership plans to open a restaurant and catering business in the building but has not yet decided what to do with the large hall, which in the past has been used as a concert hall, country-and-western bar and beer museum.

        The partnership bought the property, for an undisclosed price, from Jerry Deters, president of the Drawbridge Inn and Convention Center and developer of Oldenberg.

        The purchase does not include the brewery, which will continue operating in the Buttermilk Pike property. Last year Oldenberg filed for bankruptcy protection and was sold.
