Welcome to the History & Hops Tour. Starting at the Maumee Bay Brewery at the Oliver House, you can use our digital guide to learn how beer brewing played an important role in Toledo’s past — and continues to shape our future today. You'll learn about the roots of Toledo's grand brewing heritage from the first breweries on the East Side, to Lenk's Hill, to shipping beer throughout the region from Toledo’s Warehouse District. We've also thrown in some local history in between the brewery-related stops to keep things fresh.
Your web-enabled smartphone or tablet will serve as your storytelling tour guide. Our tour is about 20 miles in length, consists of 20 stops and takes about two hours to complete. All of the roads used are public and traffic on some can be fairly heavy. Use caution, especially when pulling into traffic or slowing for a stop. Obey all posted speed limits and traffic regulations.
