It's All About the Beer!
Mark your calendars Father's Day Weekend for one of the largest and longest-running Beer Festivals in Cincinnati: Jungle Jim’s International Craft Beer Fest!
The International Craft Beer Festival, taking place at Oscar Event Center, is a two-night spectacle that we want to be “All About The Beer.” Year-round, we love educating, we love sharing, and, of course, we love beer! The International Craft Beer Festival is your chance to enjoy all of those things at once. There will be limited early admission tickets for those looking to get a head start and avoid some of the crowd. General admission tickets will be available to make sure everyone who wants to enjoy this truly spectacular show will be able to. And if you’re a part of our Brew Crew, be on the lookout for some exclusives that only you’ll have access to. Interested in becoming a Brew Crew member? Sign up here! It's totally free, with newsletters all about the best and tastiest in the beer world, straight from our Beer Experts on the floor!
We’ll have over 100 breweries showcasing more than 400 beers, including a few unique brews you won’t be able to find at your typical beer festival. Included in the ticket price will be access to a variety of food and pub grub - we want to make sure this as full of an experience as possible. So get ready - the International Craft Beer Festival is set to fill your glasses and get your summer started right!
The Beers There will be over 400 beers from more than 100 different breweries. You will have the chance to try imported and local beers, along with craft brews and hard cider. Plus, both nights of the Festival will be kicked off by tapping a firkin (a keg of beer that’s been carbonated inside of the barrel it’s fermented in).
Once beers for 2019 are confirmed, you can check out the full line up on our Untappd menu HERE!
