Over-the-Rhine: When Beer Was King

Ken Burns coverage of George Remus, King of the Bootleggers, in the PBS Special, 'Prohibition,' has given us an interesting glimpse back into life in the Queen City in the Roaring 20's.  

Step back to an even earlier time, 'When Beer was King," at the Heritage Luncheon on Saturday, October 22, 2011.  Michael Morgan will speak on this fascinating time in Cincinnati history at the luncheon.  Everyone is welcome!   A printable registration form can be found at:  Heritage Society Registration Form.  Please return your registration by October 12, 2011.  The following program description was taken from the registration form:
Michael Morgan has worked several years toward the physical and cultural restoration of Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine.  He has been involved in historic preservation and conducting events that bring the neighborhood’s history alive. He is a lawyer, author, trustee of the Brewery District Community Redevelopment Corp. and former executive director of the
Over-the-Rhine Foundation.  Michael organizes tours of historic brewery sites and the annual Cincinnati Bockfest and recently published his book, Over-the-Rhine: When Beer Was King.
