Fort Thomas Mayor Eric Haas Honored with NKY Community Award for Hofbräuhaus

On Thursday, March 5, Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce CEO and President Brent Cooper presented Eric Haas, co-founder and co-owner of the Hofbräuhaus in Newport, with the Northern Kentucky Community Award.

Opening in April 2003, the Hofbräuhaus Newport is modeled after the original 400+-year-old Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany and was the first Hofbräuhaus location to open in the United States. The restaurant is known for its authentic German cuisine, specialty and seasonal biers brewed on-site, and live Bier Hall entertainment.

“Under Eric’s leadership, Hofbräuhaus has played a pivotal part in attracting tourists from all over the world to not just Newport, but Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati, too,” said Cooper. “We’re grateful to Eric and his entire team for their commitment to our community, and are honored to present him with the NKY Community Award.”

The NKY Community Award, sponsored by Central Bank, is awarded to exceptional individuals, businesses or organizations that have helped to advance or promote the region. Nominations are open to the community, and awards are presented throughout the year.

Individuals interested in learning more about the NKY Community Award, or in submitting a nomination, should contact Lynn Abeln at
