According to the book, Cincinnati's Brewing History, Barbarossa was brewed by the Red Top Brewing Company and was its premium brand of beer. It was produced solely at the Dayton Street plant until the demise of Red Top in 1957.

But it must have worked for my grandfather, though. According to my mother, it was her father's favorite beer.
