Final Countdown: Bockfest

Prohibition Resistance Tour

Saturday March 8 and Sunday March 9

Join the Brewery District CURC as we explore Cincinnati's rich brewing heritage, both above and below ground during Bockfest.

We will start our tour at the Museum Center, where your tour admission will include admission to the Cincinnati History Museum's special exhibit on Cincinnati's brewing history. We'll hear from Christian Moerlein Brewing Company's CEO Greg Hardman, as he tells us the amazing story of how Christian Moerlein left his native Germany and started one of the biggest breweries in the country, a story that mirrors the history of Cincinnati. The bus tour will include many of the remaining brewery buildings in Cincinnati, including the John Hauck Dayton Street Brewery, the Clyffside Brewery, the Jackson Brewery, and the Christian Moerlein Brewery. We will explore the life of another of Cincinnati's great brewers at the John Hauck House Museum, where this restored mansion on Cincinnati's original "Millionaire's Row" contains original antiques, furnishings and brewing memorabilia. Our final stop is at another of Cincinnati's great breweries, the Kauffmann Brewery. Here we will journey to the sub-basements and tunnels of the brewery, spaces unused since Prohibition.

Tickets and additional details are available here.
