No beer here, at least on local television.

Unable to find a TV outlet, producers of the “Cincinnati Beer Story” will premiere the one-hour film 7 p.m. July 29 at Mecklenberg Gardens, 302 E. Univesity Ave., Corryville.

Gary Burbank narrates the documentary about the city’s rich brewing history, from Christian Moerlein and John Hauck, through the 1960’s popularity of Hudepohl, Burger and Schoenling Little Kings, to their revival by Greg Hardman.

Production started three years ago. The story is told with interviews with historians and descendants of pioneer brewers; and film, photos and old TV commercials, said Mark Sweeney, executive producer.

You can see the trailer and buy tickets for the premiere ($15), a DVD ($20) or shirts ($18-22) at
