The big one is back!

The 12th Annual Cincy Winter Beerfest takes place this Friday Feb 1 and Saturday Feb 2 at the Duke Energy Convention Center (525 Elm St. Cincinnati).

Join Cincy Beerfest as they celebrate great craft beer from down the street and around the country! Enjoy hundreds of craft beers from over 150 breweries, live music and tons of craft beer fans!

Breweries and beer enthusiasts from across the region will gather these two evenings for a sampling of fresh craft beers of all styles, and tastes and a whole lotta fun! All while raising funds for the Big Joe Duskin Music Foundation, a 501-C-3 tax exempt organization dedicated to helping music programs in underfunded elementary and junior high schools.
