This show will feature dozens of vendors showing off and selling their unique brewery collectibles, including cans, bottles, trays, neon signs, and more. Admission to the show is only $5. Spouses and children under 18 are free. The famous raffle will happen at 1P, make sure to get there early to get your tickets. The show also includes the opportunity to take a tour of the Schmidt Brothers/Crown Brewery lagering cellars for an additional $10.
In addition to the breweriana, local artists and photographers will have their work available for purchase to support the BDCURC. The BDCURC (www.otrbrewerydistrict.org) and artist/tap room manager Tank Mansfield recruited local artists and photographers to render brewing heritage and neighborhood scenes to raise money for the BDCURC’s development efforts. Original watercolor and oil paintings, illustrations, framed and unframed photographs, and limited edition prints of the newest neighborhood mural will all be available for purchase. Artist Jim Effler (www.jimeffler.com) applies his realistic style (with a touch of impressionism) to local scenes, including beer posters and labels for local breweries and festivals. He will have a selection of original pieces as well as prints of his most popular event posters and beer labels. Other artists include Patrick Browne, Ray Burt, Rodney Eggleston, Ray Hassard, Stuart Hyde, Tank Mansfield, Chad Marchese, Kevin O’Neil, John Ritter, Clarence Sekeraks, Larry Sparks, Anthony Stollings, Christina Wald, Dann Woellert, and Kay Worz.
Free tours of the Christian Moerlein production brewery are available, and food by Weinerwurst Mike’s Frankfurtury will be available all day along with Christian Moerlein beer, soda, coffee and water.
