Bockfest Brewer’s Summit and Homebrew Competition

Saturday March 7, 2015

Beer_HomebrewSaturday March 8 at the Bockfest Hall and Festival Tent from 1P-6P we will celebrate all that is good about bock beer.  The Bockfest™ Brewers’ Summit is an event for people who are serious about brewing beer, as well as those who are just semi-serious about drinking it.

The Bloatarian Brewing League is again sponsoring the annual Bockfest™ Home Brew Competition. The competition is BJCP-sanctioned, and BJCP points are awarded. The Christian Moerlein Brewing company selects one entry from the Traditional Bock (5B) category to be used to produce the limited-edition Schoenling Bock the following year. The 2015 Schoenling Bock is the winning entry from the 2014 competition. It will be tapped at a special event the week before Bockfest™, and only will be available at Bockfest™ venues.

Visit the Bloatarian’s website for more information about the competition and their organization. Sign up to compete HERE.

We’re proud to have our local craft brewers be an expanded part of Bockfest™ this year. Local craft bock and seasonal beers will be featured in our heated Festival Tent all weekend long. On Saturday afternoon, Brewmasters and representatives from multiple craft breweries in the Cincinnati region will be present at to discuss and answer questions about their beers while attendees taste different offerings.
