Photowalk: Brewery District Lager Tour

PhotoCorps is excited to enlist the expert guides at Cincinnati Brewery Tours for this photowalk. Beer helped build this city, and the stories of those days still resonate today. Explore the breweries, cellars, and tunnels that were the heart of Cincinnati's brewing heritage. Have your cameras and phones charged for what will be lots of photo opportunities.

The Brewery District Lager Tour starts at historic Findlay Market in Over-the-Rhine. Walking up Elm Street, tour guests will learn how German immigrants built the densely populated neighborhoods, which precipitated their great thirst for beer. Walking past the original Christian Moerlein brewery complex, guests will learn about this historic pre-Prohibition brewery that once was one of the largest in the country. Guests continue to the Sohn/Clyffside brewhouse, one of the most stellar examples of brewery architecture in the city, where they will see the ornate high-bay brewing spaces inside. The final stop is deep under the Jackson brewery, venturing through to the massive network of lagering cellars in the Clifton hillside.

Please note this is a walking tour through former breweries, and involves walking about 8 blocks outside and through old buildings. Please dress accordingly. The tour is not recommended for children under 12. 

Parking is available in the Findlay Market lots as well as on the street (please note meters have a 2-hour limit).
