SOLD OUT – The Bourbon King: The Life and Crimes of George Remus: Prohibition’s Evil Genius
Thursday, February 13, 2020

Don’t miss author Bob Batchelor’s riveting look at bootlegging kingpin George Remus.

During the seedy days of Prohibition, Remus ran the largest bootlegging operation in the country, right from his mansion in Price Hill. He amassed a $200 million fortune before landing in jail, but his story doesn’t end there. After his release, he murdered his wife in Eden Park and claimed he suffered from temporary insanity – and got away with it.

Join mixologist Molly Wellmann for bourbon tastings and a boozy history of bourbon, speakeasies and Prohibition.
