Jim Hennessey’s Farewell Tour at The Woodward Theater Tomorrow Night

Cincinnati beer pioneer Jim Hennessey passed away in early February and his friends (many of whom happen to be his colleagues) have come up with a perfect tribute to him. Tomorrow night at the Woodward Theater in OTR there will be a benefit concert and beer festival from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. The cost is $20 cash at the door and proceeds benefit the Hennessey family.

This is the way the event is described on its Facebook page:

On February 2, 2015 the Heidelberg family and local craft community lost a legend. Jim Hennessey was a 12 year Associate at Ohio Valley Wine and Beer Company and a trailblazer in the world of craft beer. Over the course of his many years in the business, he touched the lives of countless individuals, both personally and professionally.

Jim passed away unexpectedly, two weeks after he received a diagnosis of advanced-staged cancer. He was 59 years old. He is survived by his beloved wife Maryanne and two daughters, Alyson and Kat.

On April 8, a benefit concert and craft beer festival to aid Jim’s family will be held at The Woodward Theater. Tickets are $20 cash at the door. Please join us as we remember the life and legacy of a great man!

His family. Music. Beer. Those are pretty much the three things that were most important to Jim. You couldn’t keep us away from this event with a big stick. If you knew Jim we know you’ll be there if you can. If you didn’t know Jim you should come out anyway because it’s just not possible to overstate what he meant to the growth of better beer in Cincinnati.

See you tomorrow night.
