The Darkside of Brewing Tour

Friday and Satudays through November 11th!

During the late 19th century, Cincinnati was one of the brewing capitals of the United States, producing millions of barrels of beer annually. Much of the beer created in the city was also drank here, mostly through local saloons. Cincinnati saloons were bustling places of social activity, but not all of it was on the up and up. In 1874, local saloon owner Andrea Egner devised the murder one of his customers over a dispute about Egner's 15 year old daughter. The salacious details of the crime were all Cincinnatians could talk about that winter as the murder trial unfolded in the local papers.
