A Cincinnati brewery has prepared something completely special and unexpected for a special event that is going to take place soon. They are going to put a very rare dinosaur skeleton on display for the first time ever. The remains are one of only three existing skeletons of the Galeamopus. But the story of this skeleton goes way back in 2000, when a rancher from Montana stumbled upon some dinosaur bones on his property. It took about four years to unearth the extremely rare skeleton and seven more for people to be able to admire it.
When the Cincinnati Museum Center excavation team unearthed the skeleton, it was about 85% complete. According to the Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology, Glenn Storrs, this is an exquisite specimen. When you think about the fact that there are only three in the world, it makes it even more unique. For 18 years, experts have prepared and studied the Galeamopus skeleton, before finally putting it on display. Today, the staff is going to put the impressive remains on display at the Rhinegeist Brewery for the event called Jurassic Geist.

The event is going to be free and held in the brewery’s main tap room. The dinosaur skeleton is also going to be there, for visitors to be able to admire. Apart from this, they will be able to enter contests and win dinosaur-related prizes. Also, taste the brewery’s new special brew for the event. This event will also support the Cincinnati Museum Center’s new dinosaur gallery, which is going to open its gates this November.
Four other dinosaur skeletons are going to join the Galeamopus in the display. This dinosaur was actually a sauropod, meaning a dinosaur with a very long neck. It was herbivorous and received its name back in 2015. This happened because previously, experts believed it to be a smaller type of Diplodocus, and not an entirely new species.
