An Afternoon with the Beer Barons

From Facebook:

The Spring Grove Heritage Foundation will host the 4th Annual ‘An Afternoon with the Beer Barons’ event from 4P to 7P. Participating brewers will provide samples of their most popular and unique beers.

Food will be provided by The Delish Dish. This event will be held outdoors in the scenic Rose Garden just inside the main entrance of the cemetery. The event will be salute to the rich history of beer in Cincinnati as many of the founding Beer Barons are buried here at Spring Grove. Our Heritage Foundation docents have done extensive research on these famous families and will share their vast knowledge as our guests join the docents on air conditioned motor coach tours of the cemetery throughout the event.

The following brewers are participating this year:

Pre-Registration is available through Eventbrite.
