Saturday March 2 at Bockfest Hall from 12P-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. This year, in addition to the competition, people who are far more comfortable drinking beer than brewing it get to judge their own favorite bock. Brewmasters from multiple breweries in the Cincinnati region will be present at Bockfest Hall to discuss and answer questions about their beers while attendees taste different offerings.
The 2013 Schoenling Bock is the winning entry from the 2012 competition. It will be tapped at a special event the week before Bockfest, and only will be available at Bockfest venues.
