The folks who put on the Cincy Winter Beerfest at the Convention Center are now taking over the Fountain Square Beerfest too. This year’s fest will be Friday, September 7th from 5:00 to 11:00 pm and Saturday, September 8th from 3:00 to 11:00 pm. There will be local music and food trucks on hand.
According to Cincy Beerfest organizer Craig Johnson, the event will be held on the entire Fountain Square and a part of 5th Street this year with 150-175 taps of craft beer from both local breweries and breweries around the country. Next year, with support from attendees, they hope to expand to surrounding streets and make it the largest outdoor craft beer festival in the region.
For this particular event, all advance tickets are VIP tickets. Advance tickets are $30 each and include 25 craft beer samples, a five ounce plastic beer mug with lanyard and access to the VIP Tent wit 24 exclusive beers. If you walk up on one of the days of the event, your cost is $45 per person.
