THE STORY OF THE FIVE POINTS ALLEY
In the Spring of 2013, over 50 neighborhood volunteers came together to clean up the neglected Five Points Alley. Every month on the third Saturday, residents continued the clean ups to maintain the newly reclaimed space. Then, on every third Sunday, WHRF hosted “pop-up biergartens,” family friendly gatherings that added a sense of community. This was a reclamation by Walnut Hills, for Walnut Hills.
We remain vigilant and sensitive to this story. We want the Five Points Alley to be a community space where residents and visitors can walk safely together, play happily together, party heartily together, eat vigorously together, share excitedly together, and do what communities can do best – make it feel like a home.
ALL FIVE POINTS ALLEY’S BIERGARTEN BREWERS REVEALED
We had an amazing time last month – great food, impromptu jam sessions, and of course beer! Plus 49 bikes took advantage of the free bike valet from Queen City Bike!
Now we’re pleased to announce that we have the brewers lined up for the whole season! This year, we’ll be enjoying brews from Rhinegeist, Mt. Carmel, Madtree and Listermann. It’s going to be a great season!
This month we’re partnering with Rhinegeist. Last year, they biked a keg up the hill from a brewery. Perhaps, with enough encouragement, we can get them to do it again this year… Join us on August 17from 3 pm – 7 pm for cold beer, good music and chill time.
