The Official Cincy Summer Beerfest is excited to bring back their time-honored summer event to TQL Stadium for a second time, in partnership with FC Cincinnati, sponsored by Fifty West Brewing Company and The Party Source
[Cincinnati, OH] — Cincy Beerfest will again take over TQL Stadium (1501 Central Pkwy, Cincinnati, OH 45214) to host their annual Cincy Summer Beerfest on Saturday, June 10, 2023. The event was the first of its kind at the stadium last year. While the field in Cincinnati’s West End is primarily considered home turf for FC Cincinnati soccer games, it proved to be the perfect setting for the longest-running craft beer festival in Cincinnati.
“We had one of our most memorable Summer Beerfests at TQL Stadium last year and we can’t wait to do it again,” says Co-Founder Matt King, “because in the daytime, there was plenty of shade and during last year’s evening rain, there was more than enough room to stay dry. You never know what kind of weather you’re going to get in Cincinnati, but at TQL Stadium, the party can run non-stop!”
The layout and scale of the stadium-as-backdrop creates a unique experience for FCC fans, and both new and returning Beerfest-goers alike. Seasonal beers from over 30 local breweries and over 150 options to choose from will be available at booths located all around the stadium. Not to mention, frozen cocktails, tequila seltzers and more options will be there to sample. Several of TQL Stadium’s concession vendors will be open, including local favorites LaRosa’s Pizzeria, Frisch’s and more.
As for entertainment, local touring cover band 4th Day Echo will be providing live music. Festival Organizers hope the event serves as an FC Cincinnati Tailgate Party, before their kickoff at 10:30pm against Vancouver, which can be viewed live within walking distance at many OTR pubs.
The event offers an inexpensive way to sample sometimes expensive beers, while often-times learning about the brews directly from the Brewers and Distributors. Early Admission Tickets will go on sale first across two sessions: a Day Session (12:30pm-4:30pm) and Night Session (6pm-10pm). Early Admission includes 4 hours of event time, 25 drink sampling tickets, 5oz. acrylic mug and access to The Pitch View Club on the home side where additional beers and photo opportunities can be found, as well as access to walk on the outer walkway of the Pitch itself in front of The Bailey. The early admission price is $45.
Regular Admission Tickets will go on sale on May 15 for $39 and include 3 hours of event time, 25 drink sampling tickets, and a 5oz. acrylic mug. Full ticket prices and details can be found via the company website.
