Jungle Jim’s Buckeye Beer Bash

From Facebook:

We love beer (if you couldn’t tell), and we’re proud of both our state’s great beer and brewing heritage and it’s bright brewing future. Local outfits like MadTree Brewing and Rhinegeist Brewery have helped put Cincinnati in the spotlight, with more brewers and breweries bringing their own unique twists to the craft all the time! Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, Wauseon, Hamilton – breweries in Ohio cities big and small alike are producing some of the best in the country.

So there’s no pretension here – just great Ohio beers. We’re celebrating the Buckeye State with a night full of some of the best Ohio breweries we could wrangle, all under one roof. We’ll have dozens of beers to sample from our favorite breweries from around the state. There will be live music from Ron Fletcher and Southern Edge, and we’ll have local food trucks to keep your stomachs full (food trucks TBA). This is going to be a great Ohio night all around.

Like the premise of the Buckeye Beer Bash, we’re keeping this one simple. For $30 pre-sale, and $35 the day of, you’ll get a glass for sampling, and tickets for samples of the Ohio beers of your choice. We want to celebrate Ohio and it’s bountiful beers and breweries, and we want you to enjoy as many as you can (safely, of course). Don’t want to drink? No worries! Non-drinker tickets are only $5, and we’ll have water available, and food and beverages to purchase.

Jungle Jim’s International Craft Beer Festival

From Facebook:

Jungle Jim’s International Craft Beer Festival is a weekend dedicated to everything awesome about Craft Beer – it’s creation, the breweries, the people behind them and their fans. As one of the Top 5 Craft Beer Retailers in the country, our International Craft Beer Festival is a celebration of what we already do year round, and a way for you to enjoy some of our favorites, some of your favorites and so much more.

General Admission ticket holders, join us when the doors open with a commemorative glass and tasting guide in-hand, check out over 400 beers from more than 100 breweries across the U.S. and around the world, enjoy a meal courtesy of the Oscar Event Center (included with the purchase of your ticket) and snack on a fresh baked Servatii pretzel, while supplies last.

Early Admission isn’t just about getting a bigger commemorative glass, you also get into the show an hour before General Admission ticket holders, so you’ll be among the first to receive pours of some of best and most sought after brews of the night. And, of course, the meal and soft pretzel are still part of your ticket, and you’ll get the freshly designed 2017 tasting guide.

If you’re planning on traveling from our Eastgate location, we’re offering a limited number of tickets each night that includes a bus ride to and from Jungle Jim’s Eastgate to the International Craft Beer Festival at Jungle Jim’s Fairfield. Purchasing this special ticket allows for early admission to the festival, and, of course, a ride on our sponsored busses.

And remember, Brew Crew members get access to beers that no one else does, so if you’re not a member yet, we suggest you sign up now!

http://junglejims.com/kiosk/

For those attending who won’t be drinking, we appreciate you coming to check out the show with your friends and family. Your non-drinker ticket allows for the same meal all General and Early Admission ticket holders get, as well as the Servatii pretzel, and complimentary soda, coffee and water.

Craft beer fans, it’s your night. Let’s raise a glass to this year’s International Craft Beer Festival!
