Mark your calendar for Columbus Microbrew Festival WEEKEND!
For six years we have brought the best microbreweries in Central Ohio to the North Market for a weekend celebration of locally craft-brewed ales, lagers and stouts during the Columbus Microbrew Festival. This year we have expanded the boundaries of both the festival and the scope of our included microbreweries. We are taking the festival to the street, quite literally, to Spruce Street adjacent to the market the weekend ofSeptember 14-16, 2012.
The new venue provides us with more room so we’ve invited microbreweries from around the state to join us. We’ll have Ohio cities represented from A (Akron’s Thirsty Dog Brewing Company) to Z (Zanesville’s returning Weasel Boy Brewing Company) and quite a few in between! New microbreweries joining the fun this year include Buckeye Lake Brewery (Buckeye Lake), Four String Brewing Company (Columbus), Great Black Swamp Brewing Company (Toledo), Great Lakes Brewing Company (Cleveland), Hoof Hearted Brewing (Marengo), Mt. Carmel Brewing Company (Cincinnati), Thirsty Dog Brewing Company (Akron) and Zauber Brewing Company (Columbus).
Admission to the event and accompanying North Market activities is free. Beer tasting admission is $20 and includes a commemorative pint glass, ten tasting tickets and a $5 North Market food certificate. Discount coupons good for $2 off the tasting admission fee will be available at all participating microbreweries in September. Additional tasting tickets will be available for $.50 each. Tickets are available in advance online HERE⇒, at the North Market business office and at the door on the days of the event.
