It's not every day you get to comb through the remnants of a brewery.
All of the railings featured beer barrel finials.
For a couple years, I've volunteered during Bockfest as a tour guide - revealing some of the local lore tied to Over-the-Rhine's long tradition of brewing and gemutlichkeit.
The OtR Brewery District group has expanded its tour offerings for the summer, allowing people to see even more of the neighborhood's historic sites along Elm and McMicken streets.
I've seen a lot of the brewery sites around Vine Street, but I'd never seen the Clyffside and Jackson breweries. These buildings are magnificent and hint at how prolific Cincinnati's brewing industry was in the 1800s.
The tours run Saturday and Sundays through summer - departing from the Findlay Market biergarten at 1 pm.
See you there!
