Welcome to the Brewery District in historic Over-the-Rhine. We are residents, business owners, and developers dedicated to making the Brewery District THE place to Live, Work, and Play.
Dubbed “Over-the-Rhine” by German immigrants, the Brewery District was the center of Cincinnati’s rich beer brewing history. At one time the city’s social and economic heart, years of economic decline followed, preserving Over-the-Rhine and its stunning architecture. Today, the large number of Romanesque brewery and industrial structures sits amid the largest collection of Italianate architecture anywhere, befitting one of the most unique urban neighborhoods in the country. In addition to the blocks of historic buildings that comprise Over-the-Rhine, the Brewery District also contains the beloved Findlay Market, which is the state's oldest farmers market.
The Brewery District continues to work to repopulate our neighborhood with visitors, residents, and businesses. We do this with heritage tourism, including festivals like BOCKFEST, the OTR BIERGARTEN, and BREWERY TOURS. We do this with redevelopment guided by our MASTER PLANNING INITIATIVES. Our key initiative, the CINCINNATI BREWING HERITAGE TRAIL, will be a world class urban heritage trail celebrating and sharing our grand brewing traditions with the world. New residential and retail development in the neighborhood, along with the coming streetcar, is poised to make the Brewery District THE premier urban neighborhood in the city.
Join us as we continue to “brew success in our community”!
