CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – The 3rd Annual Cincy Winter Beerfest is this Saturday. It's a charity craft beer tasting festival to be held in Downtown Cincinnati at the spacious Hyatt Regency Cincinnati hotel. All proceeds benefit The Big Joe Duskin Music Education Foundation. Every year the festival has sold out, growing each year.
Attendees can sample over 150 different craft beers from around the country and the world. This festival is a unique way to inexpensively sample sometimes very expensive beers, and learn about the beers from Brewers and Distributors. Some of the beers that will be on hand cost as much $18 a small bottle or $400 a keg. In total, over 3,000 Gallons of Beer will be dispensed at this year's Cincy Beerfest! VIP Tickets allow buyers to enjoy 2 extra hours at the Festival starting at 5 p.m., and General Session begins at 7 p.m. and the Festival ends at 11 p.m. Advance Tickets are available online for $30 General Session and $40 VIP.

In fact, The Cincy Beerfest will be the first place you can sample all of the beers from our newest Cincinnati brewery, Rivertown Brewing Company. One of the festival's presenting sponsors is Rock Bottom Brewery located on Fountain Square. Rock Bottom has an award winning brewmaster and makes all of its unique offering in-house at the Fountain Square location. Head Brewer Mitchell Dougherty will be on hand and leading a seminar, "Microbreweries Today & What Goes Into Making Great Rock Bottom Beers" at 6pm in the Tasting Theater. "We were excited to support this local Beerfest and to be able to showcase our beers. Out West, and especially in Arizona where I'm from, there are a lot of these, so it's exciting what they have been able build Cincy Beerfest into."
The Big Joe Duskin Music Education Foundation is a 501-c-3 non-profit organized in honor of the late great Cincinnati Blues icon "Big Joe Duskin". It commissions local Blues and Jazz bands to perform in area schools to help keep the genres alive in future generations. 100% of the donations to the Foundations are used for this purpose, and the foundation has been able to commission numerous events that have helped educate over 2500 area children last year. The Cincy Beerfests are the largest annual fundraiser for the organization. Bill Hulsizer is the founder and President of the Foundation.
Legendary 8 piece Party Band "The Modulators" will perform on the Main Stage all night! Known to 3 decades of party goers, The Modulators get the crowd moving with their eclectic mix of 70's & 80's hits.
