Join us for the 9th Annual Cincy Beerfest On Fountain Square! 6p-11p on Friday Night, 3p-11p on Saturday Night! 100+ Breweries, Hundreds of craft beers, from down the street and around the country! Cincy’s best Food trucks! Great live entertainment! The fest takes place on Fountain Square and all of 5th Street between Vine & Walnut streets. ONLY TICKETS BOUGHT IN ADVANCE GET YOU VIP PASSES which includes special beers in the VIP Lounge behind the Stage with restrooms. Because Fountain Square is completely open to the public, you can attend this festival, and not drink, for free. To drink beer, you must purchase a Drinking wristband and Drink Tickets. The smallest pack is $15 for a Wristband and 2 pints or 5 samples (5oz each). The best deal by far is to buy a VIP PASS in advance of the event for $40 which gets you your Drinking Wristband ($5 value) , 25 sampling tickets ($50 Day Of value), and access to the VIP lounge with exclusive beers and restrooms. Because the Square is open, children are welcome to attend for free, just be aware as the night goes on the Square can become crowded. All proceeds benefit the Big Joe Duskin Music Education Foundation. Stop by their table and see the new Bronze Historical Markers honoring local Blues/Jazz legends that are being placed at venues around the city.
