The best summer beer festival is back! Volksfest is a festival for the people of Cincinnati, brought to you by your favorite local craft breweries. Held August 1st and 2nd at Listermann Brewing Company in Norwood, Ohio, Volksfest will feature beers only from local breweries. The word Volk in German means people, and Cincy’s brewers have decided to come together once again to show our customers just how much they mean to us. There will be live music all day, performed by local musicians (Bands yet to be announced). Several different food venders will be on hand to serve a wide range of food. The idea behind Volksfest is lower ABV and session beers for the hot summer days in August. There is no cost to attend Volksfest, just pay for whatever you eat and drink!
The celebration goes from Friday at 5 pm until midnight and Saturday from Noon until 11 pm.
The breweries involved are: Blank Slate, Fifty West, Christian Morelein, Rock Bottom, Rivertown, Mt. Carmel, Madtree, Cellar Dweller, Wiedemann, Quaff Bros, Rhinegeist, Triple Digit, Bad Tom Smith and Listermann. Some of these breweries are making beers JUST for this event!
Listermann Brewing Company has teamed up with the CinciDeutsch to host the event. They will be bringing an authentic German feel to the festival, as well as booths, banners and parades to talk about their respective clubs. The ceremonial keg tapping of the Listermann Volksfest Lager will be held at 4 p.m.
Like the Oktoberfest and Starkbier Fest previously held at LBC, this event will be family and dog friendly. More info on the music and food venders will be provided later.
For special accommodations or questions, call Listermann’s at 513-731-1130 or email Jason at Jason@listermannbrewing.com. We look forward to seeing you August 1st and 2nd! Prost/Cheers!
