Where: Duke Energy Convention Center, Cincinnati, Ohio
The Cincy Winter Beerfest returns to the Duke Energy Convention Center February 15 & 16! 350+ Craft Beers from down the street and around the country. 98% of which are Draft Beers. Including every locally brewed beer available! 100 Breweries! The entire 225,000 square foot Convention center! 14,000 attendees over 2 glorious, craft beer filled days. Regular Tickets are $35 and include your souvenir mug and 25 sampling tickets with each good for one full sample in your 5oz souvenir mug. Go VIP for $45, get an 8oz souvenir mug and the same 25 sampling tickets. For the true Beer Aficionado, we have the Connoisseurs Level ticket at $75. In addition to all of the VIP level benefits, These attendees enjoy access to Ballroom upstairs from the Main Hall of the Beerfest and get to taste the creations from 15 local Chefs from the finest Chef driven restaurants in Cincinnati, and each is paired with a rare/unique beer and brewery whose Brewer is also in attendance. The goal is to try old favorites, find your next new favorite beer/brewery, try new styles...maybe outside your comfort zone and not be worried about your drink tickets. There's great Entertainment each night, led by everyone's favorite party band THE TURKEYS, and some crazy stuff like a Silent Disco, a full size Karaoke Bar, a German BierGarten, Ice Cream Stout Floats, and much much more! All proceeds benefit the Big Joe Duskin Music Education Foundation. Last year alone, Beerfest proceeds enabled over 50 elementary and junior high schools (most with underfunded music departments) to have professional blues and jazz bands perform for them and lead educational presentations about Teamwork, Accepting Diversity, and Work Ethic...that playing a musical instrument can bring.
