Cincinnati beer landmarks at risk

CINCINNATI — More than a century ago, streets in Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine
neighborhood were lined with hundreds of saloons with lager-drinking Germans
immersed in a beer brewing culture.

Today, that deep-rooted brewingheritage has been nearly erased, with the
breweries demolished or left to decay. Preservationists are racing to save the
remaining relics, considered the largest collection of their kind nationally, as
a destination for beer enthusiasts and history buffs.

In September, Cincinnati native Greg Hardman announced plans to build Moerlein
Lager House restaurant and beer garden. He also says he's working on plans to
open a brewery.

In 1872, a Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce report said 32 breweries produced more
than 436,000 barrels of beer and contributed to a labor payroll of $1.2 million.
