This is where Bockfest is held and is part of the old Kauffman Brewery. This is where they laid out the malt and such. Hence the large floor space and the columns instead of the brick continueing to the floor.
I liked this HDR I did while on a brewery tour today with Club Blatz. This room was almost completely black it was so dark. At least behind me was. I liked that pile of trash because of the beer cans, since it was a brewery tour that added something to it for me.

Kauffman Lager House
(Mar 25) This is a 14 photo, 3 photo per HDR so, 42 photo representation of Kauffman Brewey underneath Cincinnati. As I understand it it is their old lager room where they would save ice from the winter and use it to cool the room even further down for lager beer storage. When you walk down below the warehouse above, it gets noticeably cooler, about 60 degrees down there. They even have a layer of rooms another 30 or so feet lower below this one.
Not the best picture but I was taking an extremely long exposure as I had no light other than the Android flashlight app. Just gives you an idea of the tunnel that runs under McMillan and connects the parts of Crown Brewery.
The door that they used to use to enter Gerke Brewery's lagering tunnels to an elevator shaft that took the lager beer to the chilly temp below the street. The beer was brewed across the way and rolled to here to be stored under another building.
This is the building that has the Gerke Brewery lagering tunnels underneath it. It is just a regular commercial first floor and apartments above. It was never a brewery, just simply a store house beneath.
