CINCINNATI -- Love learning about Cincinnati's brewing heritage? How'd you like to own a little piece of it?

Christian Moerlein Brewery is hosting its annual Sunday After Thanksgiving Breweriana Show until 1 p.m. in Over-the-Rhine.

The event is a place for collectors to buy, sell and trade brewing memorabilia, and there are usually items from Greater Cincinnati's rich brewing tradition.

The Brewery Collectibles Club of America will show collectible beer cans and steins, along with coasters and labels.

The brewery also is hosting A Franciscan Christmas, an exhibit great for families with kids, Christian Moerlein owner Greg Hardman said. It features several decorated Christmas trees, a nativity collection from around the world, a Dickens village, a Santa Claus collection and a train.

"I think we've been working about three weeks now from morning to night and this year had a lot of good help getting it together. So, our goal here was to get rid of the garage feeling and make you feel at home, and I think we accomplished that this year," the Rev. Tim Sucher said.

The exhibit is open to the public Wednesdays through Sundays. It's free, though the friars ask for a donation to help support their work at St. Francis Seraph Parish.
