The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Check Out Cincinnati’s New Cool

4. Insider’s Tip

Explore the city's subterranean beer tunnels, remnants of the Prohibition era.  

Below the streets of Over-the-Rhine, an intricate network of "beer tunnels" tells the vivid story of Cincinnati’s Prohibition-era brewing history. Craig Maness leads a 90-minute underground tour, which, in addition to walking the tunnels themselves (which hover at around 58 degrees throughout the year, making them perfect for aging lager), also allows you to visit a 19th-century German tenement home and a burial crypt beneath an old church.
