Just when you think you know whats under your feet, you come across one of these:

Cincinnati has a long history of beer brewing, and one of our latest projects owns a unique piece of that history. The building at 1826 Race street was originally owned by Benjamin Weik, who used the sub-basement to store beer he brewed at his other facilities. Named 'Lafayette Hall', the 4th floor of the building was originally an event center. 

Over the Rhine is full of such sub-basements, used for similar storage and for lagering of beer. More info about OTR's brewing history can be found at the following links:
