Spooky season is upon us, and with it comes a new tour that navigates eerie tales interwoven within Cincinnati’s brewing history. Debuting Oct. 5, Haunted Brewery Tours: Can you solve the Mystery? is a collaborative effort between the Brewery District Community Urban Redevelopment Corporation, Christian Moerlein Brewing, Cincinnati Escape Room and Cincinnati Landmark Productions.
Step into Christian Moerlein’s brewery and peek through the lens of time to meet historical characters in Cincinnati brewing history; each has a doomed fate laid out before them. Of the five ghoulish tales told on the tour, one is fiction — the rest are true. Make like Scooby-Doo: clues and hands-on puzzles will be scattered along the way to help you solve this case of falsity.
“Not only is this the first haunted brewery tour in an actual historic brewery in the country, it’s unlike any other Halloween event in the city,” says Steven Hampton, executive director of BDCURC, in a press release. He adds that it’s the “perfect” fundraiser for the brewery district.
Before delving into chilling antics, guests can cozy up in Moerlein Tap Room and enjoy a sudzy draft.
7-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays in October. $25. Christian Moerlein Malt House Taproom, 1621 Moore St., Over-the-Rhine, hauntedbrewerytour.com.
