Brewery District signage installed

The Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation (BDCURC) is reporting that a new Ohio Historical Marker honoring Cincinnati's brewing heritage has now been installed at 231 W McMicken Avenue, in front of Hanna Park.

The signage made its debut on April 11 during a groundbreaking for BDCURC's $3 million The Clyffside condominium project.

In the future, BDCURC is planning additional, smaller brewery-inspired signage for various locations throughout the district.

At the height of production, a majority of the City's 36 breweries operated in Over-the-Rhine and the West End.

The Brewery District area of Over-the-Rhine now contains the majority of the remaining structures of those brewery complexes.
