(Cincinnati, Oh.)--Cincinnati's newest beer festival this summer will feature nearly a dozen local breweries.
The "Inaugural Lunken Beerfest" will be presented by Bad Tom Smith Brewing and the Cincinnati Recreation Foundation.
Bad Tom's co-owner Sean Smith says they wanted to establish an annual event that will also help out the Cincinnati Recreation Foundation. The Foundation relies on private donations and corporate giving to fund their programs.
The festival scheduled for June 28th, will offer free admission but attendees will have to purchase the pints of beer from each vender. The event running from 3-11pm will be held at the Lunckin play field by the Lunken Airport.
Smith says Larossa pizza will have a booth set up and Urban Grill and Texas Joe food trucks have signed up. Entertainments includes live music and a Corn Hole tournament. Sign up for the tournament is on Cincinnati Recreation Commission website.
Smith said 10 local breweries have signed on to take part including: Blank Slate, Cellar Dweller, Fifty West, Listermann, MadTree, Christian Moerlein, Mt. Carmel, Rivertown, Triple Digit and Wiedemann's. Smith said any addition and more info will be posted on their website at www.badtomsmithbrewing.com.
Smith said theirs "no cost to get in, your just paying for pints of beer, from the 10 local breweries, there is a fee to get in the Corn Hole Tournament and that registration is on the CRC website."
Smith hopes the fest celebrating Cincinnati’s craft brewing culture, will bring out a good crowd saying "come on down for a craft beer, and enjoy some good music and some good food and hopefully we are in store for some good weather."
