It is VERY hot under ground. I recommend wearing comfortable shoes and cool clothing. Other than that it was very entertaining and educational.

Shocking how unsafe the environment was. The railings on the steps had rusty nails sticking out the back, a broken pallet was placed on the floor where you had to walk on it to get over a short concrete wall, and there were cinder-blocks stacked on top of each other for steps without a railing. All o0f these could be fixed in one day with a little work. The guide was very interesting and gave a lot of information.

I was expecting more. Thought we would also learn how beer is made and see some of the factory. Information was interesting and guide was knew his stuff, just thought it would entail more.

This tour was amazing! We not only learned about the brewery industry but also some interesting history about Cincy and we saw cool architecture. As a bonus the tour starts and ends at Findlay Market! Wear walking shoes and get your cameras ready!

From Our Editors

The nearly 50 brewery buildings that make up Cincinnati's Brewery District range from Romanesque works of art to impressive brick industrial spaces. Many have stood on the same spots since long before Prohibition, outlasting neighboring structures that fell to the wrecking ball. If those buildings had faces, they'd use them to thank the Brewery District's redevelopment group. The band of residents, business owners, and developers helps protect and promote the rich history of this former German cultural hub and epicenter of the Cincinnati brewing industry.

As part of a long-term plan to redevelop the area, the organization welcomes visitors into diverse events such as seasonal beer festivals and a pop-up beer garden at the Findlay Market. But the most popular gatherings are the brewery tours that stop at pre-Prohibition breweries and explore the historic, secret barrel-transportation tunnels that run 40 feet below street level and directly into local refrigerators.

The nonprofit organization's key initiative is to create a world-class urban heritage trail in the district. The 2.3-mile Brewing Heritage Trail opens in 2017 and will lead visitors through the Over The Rhine, Pendleton, and Downtown neighborhoods and will feature both physical and virtual installations, as well as guided tours.
