An Afternoon With the Beer Barons 2022 (8/13/2022)

Thank you to those planning to attend our beer tasting event, An Afternoon With the Beer Barons on August 13th. Unfortunately ticket sales have been quite low and we need to cancel. This event has always been such a hit but we don’t see a way to successfully carry on with the numbers we have. We hope to bring this event back in 2023! BEER! MUSIC! TOURS! FUN! The Spring Grove Heritage Foundation will host the 7th Annual 'An Afternoon with the Beer Barons' event from 4P to 7P. Participating brewers will provide samples of their most popular and unique beers. Live music will be provided by Cinci River Rats and food trucks will be on site for purchase. This event will be held outdoors in the scenic Rose Garden just inside the main entrance of the cemetery. The event is a salute to the rich history of beer in Cincinnati as many of the founding Beer Barons are buried here at Spring Grove. Our Heritage Foundation docents have done extensive research on these famous families and will share their vast knowledge as our guests join the docents on air-conditioned motor coach tours of the cemetery throughout the event. See below for a list of participating breweries.

Historic Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum invites you to participate in our Tribute to our Veterans and Heroes of Public Service. We proudly welcome back our Flags of Honor Display. This tribute will honor ALL VETERANS, MILITARY PERSONNEL and HEROES OF PUBLIC SERVICE, those who serve to protect our communities every day. The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States realizes that duties performed in the fields of law enforcement and emergency services, whether carried out in public view with the ensuing public acclaim, or performed in ways which gain little public recognition, are both exemplary and of great value to the nation. 100 3’ x 5’ sponsored US flags will be placed along the roadways within the cemetery. You and your family have the opportunity to honor those who are close to your heart by sponsoring one or more of these flags for $25 each. All veterans and service personnel are eligible, whether living or deceased. There are also no restrictions as to where a deceased honoree is buried. Each sponsored flag will be identified by an acrylic plaque at the base of the flagpole. The plaque will contain the name of the honoree, any pertinent information about the honoree shared by the sponsor, and a photo of the honoree (if provided). After the flags are removed for storage, the laminated card will be available for sponsoring families to retrieve in the Customer Service Center of the cemetery the following week. A map depicting the location of each flag will be available in the Customer Service Center.
