The group discussed many of the original breweries of the Erie region.
Attendees also got a chance to hear members of the Koehler family sing a rendition of the Koehler song in German.
Turnout was surprisingly high and those who showed up got a chance to taste a special batch of pre prohibition era "Koehler Beer" based on an early recipe.
