Cincinnati: Bockfest 2010

1 post in this topic

Didn't mind the foot of snow Cincinnati had just weeks earlier. And the deep overcast skies that dominated the winter scene.

It was time for Bockfest!

Cincinnati is home to the world's oldest Bock festival, and the city's deep connection with its beer heritage is well evident in this event. For those who are not aware, the Queen City was once home to 38 breweries, one for every neighborhood and then some, producing so much that it was the fourth largest manufacturer of lager in America. Cincinnatian's also drank every city in the United States under the table, consuming two-and-a-half times more beer more than any other: forty gallons of golden hues per resident in a given year were consumed, mostly concentrated in the deeply German-ethnic neighborhood Over-the-Rhine.

I photographed the parade and took part in the events over the weekend that spanned the weekend of the 5th of March. Click through for more information and history of Bockfest and to view the full 56 photographs in the gallery. Be sure to also check out the Prohibition Resistance Tour, part of Bockfest, at Abandoned. Enjoy!
