Braxton Brewing will be there, serving their new Graeter’s Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Stout. Graeter’s Ice Cream will be there with Braxton Brewing, serving their chocolate raspberry ice cream on top of the beer, making a beer stout. The want for craft beer is evident in the growing industry here locally.

In honor of the anniversary, organizers have also added giveaways and collaboration brews into the mix. The former will raffle off prizes like a trip to the new Sierra Nevada Brewery in Asheville and lifetime tickets to the festival. The event was held this year in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio and is one of the [pii_email_f744b3ae828b2f819cbd] oldest and largest. It is held every year, usually on the weekend before Fourth of July, usually on the weekend after Labor Day. The event is held at the Cincinnati’s oldest continuously operating brewery, the Ohio Brewing Company. The brewers are all there, and I think the beer itself was pretty tasty.

Local outfits like MadTree Brewing and Rhinegeist Brewery have helped put Cincinnati in the spotlight, with more brewers bringing their own unique twists to the craft all the time! Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, Wauseon, Hamilton – breweries in Ohio cities big and small alike are producing some of the best in the country. Jungle Jim’s Fall Smash – Along with the weather, fall flavors can be just as intense. Hard cider, pumpkin beer and local food trucks will take over the Greenhouse at our Fairfield location for a full day of food and revelry.

We’re bringing in more booths to explore, awesome food to eat, heating up the contests and adding some exciting and enticing new elements to make this the hottest weekend of the year. In addition to tapping that first keg during the open ceremonies, Jim Koch will be debuting the latest Sam Adams craft beer, a tart New England IPA called Tricorne (yes, it’s named after the hat). Despite the company’s growth, its festivals continue to have a charity component. Festivals Unlimited essentially serves as each event’s producer, taking a flat fee for its efforts, and the event proceeds go to charities. As for the collaborations, festival staff partnered with five local breweries – MadTree, Rock Bottom, Braxton, Rhinegeist and Taft’s Ale House – to create a beer with each.

Proceeds from the festival will go to support the Big Joe Duskin Music Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting the music programs in public schools across the Greater Cincinnati region. Since it started 10 years ago, Cincy Beerfest has raised more than $181,000 for the Foundation to date and its donations to the Foundation will surpass $200,000 after this year’s Beerfest. Part of putting on a successful event is knowing how much of each beer to buy. Johnson said they bought more than one million ounces last year. It’s a delicate balance between having enough of a beer that it’s still pouring on the second day and not being left with large quantities of leftover beer to send back to wholesalers at the end. “We saw that Cincinnati was five to 10 years behind the curve on craft beer,” back then, Johnson said.

Locally, money goes to Big Joe Duskin Music Foundation, a nonprofit that aids underfunded school music programs. The Ohio Brewing Company, which is the oldest continuously operating brewery in the world, is located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The brewery itself was built in 1851 and has been in operation since 1854. They brew about 500 different beers and they are the largest remaining family owned brewery in the country. Some of the features on our site may not work and this may cause you troubles obtaining tickets during the request process.

The want for more craft beer is something Johnson says is here to stay. After much reported discussion on how a beer-flavored ice cream would go over with the public, Graeter’s will be unveiling their newest ice cream, carrying a mystery beer flavor, at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati.
