The Ohio River basin first served as a crossing point for Native Americans traveling south. It is believed that Robert Cavelier, sieur de La Salle, was the first explorer to reach this spot on the Ohio River as early as 1669. Part of the Northwest Territory that the newly formed United States government received from England at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, Cincinnati became a strategic debarkation point for settlers forging a new life in the wilderness. And one thing you need in the wilderness (as anyone knows) is great food and beer. Join us as we talk with Joby Bowman and Michael Shield (partners in Brew River Gastropub) about catsup and ketchup, Emeril Lagasse and their passion for great food and beer.
