The History of Miamisburg Beer

In this presentation, Mr. Gaffney will discuss his research into brewing in Miamisburg including his latest discoveries, complete with names, maps, and drama from the 19th century Star City. One of these breweries—the “Kuehn’s Brewery” pictured on the 1886 lithograph of Miamisburg—was located at the foot of Mound hill.
