    'Cincinnati Liars Lager' June 15 fundraiser will benefit National VOA Museum of Broadcasting
    West Chester Grainworks Brewery will create beer, host event

    Grainworks Brewing Company of West Chester will help the National VOA Museum of Broadcasting have fun and raise funds by tapping the first keg of its “Cincinnati Liars Lager” at a June 15 fundraiser.

    The event will be held at Grainworks, 7790 Service Center Dr. on Saturday, June 15 from 2 to 10 p.m. Proceeds from beer sales and “Cincinnati Liars” t-shirts featuring the beer label will benefit the museum. Pints will cost $6; live music, board games and the keg tapping are also planned.

    Bottles of “Cincinnati Liars Lager” will be available for sale later this summer at Grainworks. They will also be featured at the museum’s “Celebration of 75 Years of VOA Bethany Station,” its major fundraiser, on Saturday, Sept. 21.

    “When the Voice of America at Bethany Station began transmitting shortwave radio war news to the European theater and our Allied troops in September of 1944, we didn’t know if anyone was listening,” said Jack Dominic, VOA museum director. “It soon became apparent that they were. Adolf Hitler, who ran an extensive propaganda machine to control the German people, soon after called the Bethany Station, ‘those Cincinnati liars.’ We’re proud to honor Bethany Station’s contribution to the VOA’s mission of telling the truth in media in order to let people in oppressed countries decide what form of government they want and will support.”


    “We’re happy to support the VOA museum during this special anniversary,” said Steven Brock, Grainworks COO. “We look forward to helping spread the word about the incredible people and technology at the museum.”

    The Cincinnati Liars Lager beer label was designed by Frankie Doerpers of West Chester. Doerpers is an artist and former art teacher at Lakota East High School’s freshman school.

    VOA museum opening hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. at 8070 Tylersville Road. Admission is $5 for adults and $1 for children.

    Docents are always needed and welcome. For information, call (513) 777-0027. For a complete schedule of 2019 VOA museum events, visit

    The WLW tour was great. Amazing feat of engineering. Those stone knives and bear skins made one heckuva machine.

    That beer brings a whole new meaning to a 807!
    If only part of the big antenna Farm was still there, it was truly impressive as all the VOA sites were.

    The VOA Museum has a t-shirt for sale at the gift shop, but not with this logo. The brewery(grainworks) will hopefully have some because that would be a great t-shirt. I will see what I can find out and keep you posted.
