First-ever Cincinnati Beer Week kicks off

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Beer Lovers United started the first ever Cincinnati Beer Week on Thursday.

No brewery sponsorships were accepted allowing breweries from every size to participate in the weeklong event.

Stores, restaurants and bars in the Cincinnati area will be holding tastings, beer-pairing dinners and brewery nights.

Everyone working Cincinnati Beer Week is a volunteer.

The week will wrap up on February 9, and then the 5th Annual Cincy Winter Beerfest will kick off at the Duke Energy Center February 10 and 11.
