CINCINNATI — A new beer garden at this year’s Oktoberfest Zinzinnati
will showcase local craft beers and allow sports fans to catch a game
on an 11-by-6-foot video screen.

The Zinzinnati Bier Garten will open at Third and Race streets during
Oktoberfest, scheduled Sept. 16-18.

The annual German heritage beer festival relocated from Fifth Street
to Second and Third streets between Walnut and Elm this year to
accommodate the Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar, which will begin
operations on Friday.

Samual Adams, a sponsor of Oktoberfest, will offer samples of three
new beers, brewed exclusively in Cincinnati, at the Zinzinnati Bier
Garten. Visitors can then taste and vote on their favorite of the
three. Sam Adams will release the most popular for a limited time as
the “513 beer” in Cincinnati and the surrounding area.

“Sam Adams has been a proud partner of Oktoberfest Zinzinnati for many
years,” said Jim Koch, Sam Adams brewer and founder and a Cincinnati
native, in a press release.
