Local beer enthusiasts and history buffs  looking to whet their
appetite have a full bevy of  events to choose from starting this
weekend.
 
 Steins-in-the-Rhine, an annual fundraiser featuring Cincinnati beer
memorabilia,  will kick off Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Garfield Suites
downtown and run until 5 p.m.
 
Cincinnati’s rich German brewing heritage left a hidden treasure trove
of beer steins, signs, cans, bottles and other antiques in living
rooms, basements and attics across the region, according to the event
host, Over-the-Rhine Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment
Corp.
 
The event provides free appraisals for authentic beer steins by
members of the Thoroughbred Stein Verein, a chapter of Stein
Collectors International. Appraisals are also available for all other
types of historic Cincinnati-area beer memorabilia by local breweriana
experts.
 
Antique steins and other antiques will be displayed, with many items
available for sale. Items brought to the event can be sold or
consigned.
 
Garfield Suites will also have beer available, including Christian
Moerlein Emancipator Dopplebock.
 
Steins-in-the-Rhine is an annual fundraiser for the Brewery District,
and a lead-up event to Bockfest 2012 — slated for March 2-4.  The
annual beer festival includes tours of Over-the-Rhine’s historic
breweries, including lagering cellars and tunnels deep below the city
streets.
 
Tickets are on sale for tours, which run March 3 and 4. Proceeds from
Bockfest tours go to support the work of Brewery District (CURC) in
historic Over-the-Rhine and West End.
