Events: The Cincinnati Beer Festival

Debauchery can be expected at this always fun downtown festival.

There are very few consumer goods that sell themselves these days.
Cigarettes (gross), hookers (grosser) and beer (deliciousest) are the
first three that come to mind, and only one of those deserves any sort
of commemoration. That?s exactly why there?s the Cincinnati Hooker,
er, Beer Festival this weekend at Fountain Square. The beerstravaganza
kicks off Friday with more than 200 different flavors of beer provided
by big beer names like Guinness, Mt. Carmel, Christian Moerlein,
Leinenkugel, Left Hand and Thirsty Dog. Fountain Square?s MPMF and
Fifth Street stages will also feature more than 30 different live
music acts with enough food vendors spread throughout the debauchery
to keep everyone thirsty.

Admission is free and 3-oz. beer tastings start at just $1. Event
times are 6-11 p.m. Friday, noon-11 p.m. Saturday and noon-9 p.m.

Editor?s Note: Steadfast intern and caustic resident Eli Johnson will
be celebrating his 21st birthday by spending all the money he doesn?t
have at the festival. Cincinnati, please take care of him.
