The guides were very knowledgable and the tour above ground was great. The rickety stairs to one dark underground room was underwhelming.

Went longer then advertised, wear comfortable shoes. We received a lot of fun history!

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.
