Year in Review - THE 15 COOLEST THINGS COMING TO US CITIES IN 2017

Cincinnati, Ohio

Underground brewing history gets a high-tech urban beer tour.
Though it's no Milwaukee (who is, really?) Cincinnati has some of the richest brewing heritage of any US city. Finally the town has put together a Brewing Heritage Trail that'll stand against any beer tour in America. It takes visitors through the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, once a hub for German immigrants to the city, and through historic old breweries and down into the bowels of Cincinnati to the tunnels and cellars brewers used generations ago.

You like drinking? You like history? You like tech toys? Well then get you to Bengals country, fella. On the tour you'll download an app that walks you through 2.3 miles of city streets, from Over-the-Rhine to Pendleton to Downtown, with narration from different characters from the area's rich 19th-century brewing culture -- beer barons, brewery workers -- making the experience unique wherever you stop. Along the way you'll find new public art and storefronts equipped with interactive screens to display images and maps of the city in its beery heyday.

Ezzard Charles (In-Progress) Cincinnati Mural / Artworks

Posted on by Jason Snell

In-Progress look at our illustration and design for the second "Legends" series for Artworks MuralWorks taking place this summer, 2015 in Over-the-Rhine Cincinnati, Ohio. This will be Artworks official 100th Mural.

Ezzard Mack Charles (July 7, 1921 – May 28, 1975) was an American professional boxer and former World Heavyweight Champion.

Charles defeated numerous Hall of Fame fighters in three different weight classes. He retired with a record of 93 wins, 25 losses and 1 draw

He was born in Lawrenceville, Georgia, but is commonly thought of as a Cincinnatian. Charles graduated from Woodward High School in Cincinnati where he was already becoming a well-known fighter. Known as "The Cincinnati Cobra", Charles fought many notable opponents in both the light heavyweightand heavyweight divisions, eventually winning a championship in the latter. Although he never won the Light Heavyweight title, The Ring has rated him as the greatest light heavyweight of all time
