Cincinnati Beer Week: Listermann Brewing & Triple Digit Brewing Events

2013 Cincy beer week (Febrewary 8th-16th) is going to be our best one yet! This is only the second annual beerfest, but we really like all of the events that we have planned with some good friends at great places for the week. We are not asking you to come to all of our events, although there will be cool prizes if you do, we would like you to go out and celebrate what this wonderful city has to offer. The Flyer lists all of our events, but I will give a little commentary to go with each one.

Feb. 8th – Arthur’s Charity Night

When you can donate money to charity AND drink beer, you just know it is going to be a great night. We are supporting the Vision Walk and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Cincinnati. These are not just great causes but customers and awesome friends. We will have our very last keg of Run Like Hell red on draft, as well as Chickow!.

Feb. 9th – Arnold’s

Arnold’s has always been a customer of ours, so they serve a lot of rare and exclusive beers. We have been waiting to unleash Jungle Honey to the market until our calendars could combine. So, try Jungle Honey for the first time outside our tasting room, this Saturday night.

Feb 10th – Moerlein Lager House

Meet your favorite local brewer (hopefully Kevin!) as we all will be present to talk about our beers and the Cincy Beer Week Collaboration.

Feb. 11th – Our Tasting Room

One night of rest until the big push. Tasting Room will be open until 6 pm and you may just see something special on draft. Check back on FB or stop in to find out!

Feb 12th – Firehouse Grill and @ the Brewery

Firehouse Grill is the first event we are attending in Blue Ash. We are excited to finally get up there and meet some fine folks who love good beer. Also, any time you can learn to brew all-grain for free, you do it.

Feb 13th – Our tasting room

Pint Night. Who doesn’t love free glasses? Just confirmed that we will have a wood-fired pizza oven food truck here! Pint night just got a little tastier.

Feb 14th – Olive’s

Will you be our Valentine? Our date will be Blank Slate as we team up for a mini-tap take over. They have 18 taps so it is impossible for us to take over all of them. We will have 3-4 beers as well as Scott from Blank Slate having 3-4 beers. This is where we will say good bye to our friend Determination for possibly the last time.

Feb. 15th and 16th – Duke Energy Center

The finish line to our marathon of planning and drinking. (Don’t be fooled the drinking won’t really stop). We are not really ones to toot our own horns, but we promise you that we will BLOW YOU AWAY with what we are bringing. We should be your first stop. Just take our word for it. Remember that one thing I was really excited about a few blog posts ago? Yeah.

For those of you who like free things (so everyone ever?), we have come up with a way to reward your support on attending our events. Print off the flyer that is attached to this post and have Kevin or Jason sign it at every event you attend. Present this to Jason in the tasting room after beer week and be rewarded. It’s that easy! Either event on 2/12 counts as one and Cincy Beer Fest counts as one even if you go both days.

One event: High Five. Maybe two if you are lucky. You didn’t think it would be that easy did you?

Three Events: Triple Digit Nonic Pint Glass

Five Events: Snifter Glass and Either Listermann or TD T-Shirt

All 8 Events (Either day of Beer fest): Growler Coozie with glass growler (Empty. Wish we could fill it with beer for free but that is illegal. Government takes out all the fun.), TD AND LBC Shirt, TD Nonic and Snifter Glass, and a regular pint glass. Basically everything we have.
