When you venture to this nook in the Buckeye state, check out one or more of the many listed breweries below or take a tour in the Over the Rhine Brewery District.  At one point in history, Cincinnati consumed more beer per person than any other city in the USA (around 40 gallons per person). This may have been due to the large numbers of German immigrants settling in the area. As we all know, beer was and is an important part of German culture.
