Beer, spirits and entrepreneurship breathing life back into OTR


Over-the-Rhine was founded over 150 years ago by German immigrants who loved their beer. Today, beer, spirits and an entrepreneurial spirit are redeveloping the neighborhood, one building at a time.

People like Molly Wellmann and Julia Petiprin, Stuart King and Ryan Rizzo are bringing their own flare to Japp's and Sundry and Vice, respectively. They're taking Cincinnati back to its pre-Prohibition roots and re-introducing residents to what built the city: beer and booze.

Along the way, these entrepreneurs are taking dilapidated buildings and renovating them into bars, breweries, restaurants and eclectic shops that are scattered throughout OTR.

There's a lot to still be done in the neighborhood, but check out how far it's come.
