This Week in Beer: February 1-7, 2021

A quick reminder: To be included on our This Week in Beer listing, the event must be beer-focused. For example, a yoga session that just happens to be held in the brewery is not beer-focused. But a yoga session bundled with a pint of beer at a brewery is beer-focused. Many locations are still doing trivia, live music, and the like so check out their websites for more information on those types of events. While in the past, we only listed events here that are unique for this coming week in beer, we will be listing weekly or monthly events until further notice. Any events that are added after our Monday noon publication time will be marked New.

Monday, February 1st from 3:00-10:00 pm – All Day Happy Hour and Pizza Special at Darkness Brewing: $4 and $5 (normally $5 and $6) on all Darkness draft beers; starting at 5:00 pm, $10 for any 12″ specialty pizza from Newport Pizza Company delivered for free right to your seat.

Tuesday, February 2nd through Sunday, February 7th – US Open Beer Championship Winners Week at Big Ash Brewing: Twelve of the Tri-State’s top Gold & Silver medal winners, all lined up to taste & sample by the ounce. Reservations are available but NOT REQUIRED for this event. You can pre-order your “Key to Liquid Knowledge” and get a free Belgian taster glass at https://www.toasttab.com/bigashbrewingtogo/v3/?mode=fulfillment. [NOTE: As long time judges for the US Open, this one is special to us! What a great opportunity to try out these medal-winning beers.]

Wednesday, February 3rd from 6:30-8:00 pm – Humble Hounds at Humble Monk Brewing: A weekly canine week-up with Cincinnati Animal Care to find permanent homes for rescues introduced each Wednesday.
