This Week in Bockfest: March 4-7, 2021

It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Cincinnati: Bockfest! While things will be different this year, the great tradition of goats and bock beers will continue in the Queen City for the 29th time. Remember that reservations are highly recommended (if not required) for all of these events.

Here are some of the highlights of Bockfest 2021:

All weekend at Fibonacci Brewing – New Baby Goat!
Fibonacci has a new baby goat named Buttercup and two bock beers named for two of their goats. Buttercup’s namesake beer is a Dunkles Bock and the other beer is a New Riff rye whiskey barrel-aged Dopplebock named Honey after another resident goat.
