There are apparently several different events that are billing themselves as the Cincinnati Beer Fest. However the Beer Fest this weekend takes place on Fountain Square. It’s sort of a pre-Oktoberfest event … a warm-up if you will.
Why am I mentioning the Beer Fest on the wine blog? Oh, a couple of reasons. I am married to Kevin the Beer Guy, first of all. Next, you can find both Kevin and myself pouring beer on Friday night (after 7:45 pm) at either the Dogfish Head or Unibroue booths (not sure which yet). All tips go to charity.
Admission is free and 3oz beer tastings start at $1. Participating beer brands include
Guinness, Heinekin, Sam Adams, Pabst, North American Breweries, Christian Moerlein, Hudepohl, Sierra Nevada, Great Lakes, Mt. Carmel, Woodchuck Cider, Budweiser, InBev, Crown, Goose Island, Rivertown Brewery, Harpoon Brewery, Summit Brewing Company, Independent Brewers United, Bluegrass Brewing Co., Spaten, Full Sail Brewing, Jacob Leinekugel, Belles, Avery, Bear Republic, Dark Horse Brewing, Stone Brewing, North Coast, Breckenridge, Great Divide, Left Hand, Boulder Beer, Heavy Seas, Unibroue, Dogfish Head, Thirsty Dog, and Wooden Shoe.
In addition to beer, I believe there will be two different wine booths available.
In addition to over 200 different flavors of beer, there will be over 30 live music acts plus multiple food and merchandise vendors.
Fifth Street between Vine & Walnut will be closed for the weekend, but the Fountain Square parking garage will remain open.
You can visit the beer festival
Hope to see you there!
