Prosit and Gemutlichkeit
the Brewing Heritage in Zinzinnati

or "Foam, Sweet, Foam…."


The College Hill Historical Society will present a multi-media presentation by Jim Bruckman, College Hill resident and great-grandson of a Cincinnati Brewer.
Free! All are Welcome!

Due to the large settlement of Germans in the 1800's, lager beer became the drink of choice in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. In 1890 there were over two hundred drinking places on Vine Street alone. The National average for Americans in drinking beer was 16 gallons per year. In Cincinnati the average per year was 40 gallons! Saloons offered free lunches and the "Schnitzelbank Song." Carrie Nation visited Cincinnati in 1901, and then Prohibition in 1918.
Find out how the Bruckmann Brewery legally survived Prohibition and Flourished.
