While Cincinnati has an amazing brewing history, much of it has been lost due over time. Breweries closed for many reasons, including Prohibition. Some breweries were sold to out of town owners or consolidated. Most history just evaporated over time.
But we know it's out there, waiting to be rediscovered. Many Cincinnatians had relatives who worked in breweries with stories to be told. Boxes of history are hiding in attics and basements. There are even a few tunnels and cellars out there still waiting to be seen again. This is where YOU come in.
We want to share YOUR brewing history, whether it's a story, brewery documents, unique piece of historic beer memorabilia, or photo (don't worry, we only want a copy or photo of your stuff!). This is Cincinnati's story, and we will preserve and share that story. Your piece of Cincinnati's brewing history could become part of the Beer Barons HOF, the Brewing Heritage Trail, and more. But we need you to share it.
