It has only been two weeks since the end of Cincinnati’s beer week and guess what? It’s time for more beer! The goat returns for the 20th year and so does the beer. The Lenten season and the celebration of Cincinnati’s rich German history culminate in Bockfest, which began due to the Queen City’s prominence in the beer brewing industry dating back to the 1800s. At the time, we drank more beer per capita than anywhere in the country. Christian Moerlein was one of the largest breweries in the country and became known for its fine craft beers. Now resurrected, Moerlein’s Bockfest Hall will be the center of the celebration that begins on Friday night at Arnold’s — Cincinnati’s oldest saloon. Several area businesses will participate as beer drinkers unite. Be careful: Bock doesn’t lack in alcohol, so pace yourself. Admission is free unless otherwise noted. Friday March 2 through Sunday March 4. For more information visit bockfest.com or call 513-604-9812.
Bockfest Hall is located at 1619 Moore St., Over-the-Rhine.
