CINCINNATI -- If you walk through Over-The-Rhine next year, you’ll be able to brush up on the history of Cincinnati’s love affair with beer, too.
Construction of the Brewing Heritage Trail’s first phase, a 2.3-mile system that guides people through the city’s historic brewing land marks with info signs and bronze medallion markers in the sidewalks, is slated to begin in 2016.
A new smartphone app, which people can use while walking the trail, and website are also expected to launch next year, said Steven Hampton, the executive director of the Over The Rhine Brewery District.
“2016 is going to be a very big year for the trail,” Hampton said. Plans for the historic brewing trail have been in the works for five years. “We’re excited share this history.”
The trail will take three years to construct and cost $5.2 million, Hampton said. It will ultimately stretch from Reading Road, near the Horseshoe Casino, past Liberty Street to McMicken Avenue, near the Christian Moerlein Brewery. City leaders hope the trail will also be an attraction for tourists who might stop and grab lunch at a nearby restaurant or be inspired to grab a beer at one of the local breweries.
