If it’s not enough that Listermann is bringing back their locally famous Oktoberfest in celebration of their big 10 year anniversary, you’ll also be happy to hear that they are throwing a ticketed anniversary party as well as a family fun day to put forth a weekend that is worthy of the ten-year club.
Cincinnati is home to a LOT of craft breweries, but of those who have taprooms, Listermann joins an elite club of only 3 others that have hit the coveted 10-year mark (Rock Bottom, Hofbrauhaus, and Mt. Carmel). It’s a celebration worth… well… celebrating!
The Anniversary Party – Friday, 9/7/18
To kick off the weekend in glorious fashion, the brewery is hosting a ticketed event that you’re going to want to be at. They’re bringing in friends from all around the state (and even the country) to pour some of the most sought-after beers. We’re talking about a tap lineup that (while it’s still be finalized) will include stuff that has never been poured in Cincinnati before, and will even include some stuff that has never made it into Ohio, even.
Food? Yeah, they’ve got that covered too. Included in your ticket you’ll have access to something to eat and drink. In fact – with their two levels of ticket they’ve included:
- Anniversary Bottles – PreSale
- 30 – Four Ounce Drink Tickets
- 2 Food Tickets
- Commemorative Tasting Glass.
If you pony up for the VIP ticket they’ll throw in:
- An hour early admission.
- Exclusive bottle of Anniversary Variant
- 2 more food tickets (4 total)
The regular tickets cost $49.99 ($59.99 after 8/23) and the VIP tickets are $69.99 ($79.99 after 8/23). But you’ll want to keep in mind that they are limiting sales to 300 tickets to keep the crowd down, so don’t wait until the last minute to get yours.
Oktoberfest – Saturday 9/8/18
You’ll want to shake off your hangover on Saturday afternoon, and get your beer drinking butt back over to Listermann, because they’re doing something that makes me extremely happy, bringing back their Oktoberfest. If you’re not familiar, Listermann’s Oktoberfest used to be one of my favorite festivals before they put it (and all their amazing festivals) into hiatus.
They invite more local breweries into one festival space that you’ll see anywhere else. Timed taps are constantly rotating through some of not just the local marzens, but some of the most delicious suds that you’ll find anywhere.
They usually fill the lot with a few food trucks – a family friendly atmosphere and live music to make sure that the party keeps hopping throughout the night.
Details about the event are still forthcoming… but when I hear them, you know you’ll find them right here!
Family Fun Day – Sunday 9/9/18
Everyone needs a day to cool down before they head back into the work week, and Sunday’s family fun day will provide just that. Family friendly games and activities will round out the anniversary weekend in dead on Listermann fashion!
Again… please please please stay tuned. As soon as beer lists, etc become available I’ll have them posted here on the site. If you don’t already, you should also be following the brewery on social media (especially Facebook) where they’ll probably post all the details too!
