Don’t forget! The 2014 Columbus Winter Beerfest will be held on Friday, January 17, 2014 and Saturday, January 18, 2014, from 7:30-11 p.m., at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
This delicious and boozy event will have over 300 craft beers available for sampling, and music presented by CD101. Grand tasting tickets are $40-$45 in advance or $50 at the door. You will get 25 tasting tickets, each good for the samples of your choice, plus a 5 oz. tasting cup. (that’s a lot of ounces).
Bring a DD – designated drivers get in for $20 (must be 21 or over) and get $5 to spend on food, plus unlimited water or soft drinks.
You can also choose to go VIP for $40-$60, and you’ll get in the door at 6:30 - an hour early – to start your tasting, plus you’ll get an 8 oz. souvenir glass for your samples. These will sell out, so get yours now!
If your standards are even high, you choose the Connoisseur Package for $75-$100, which includes VIP Early Admission benefits, Special Souvenir Glass, and Access into the Connoisseur Reception Area (appetizer bites from 8-10 local restaurants each paired with a rare/super premium beer, private restrooms), and more.
This was a really fun event, and I think the VIP was worth it when I went (when I could still drink beer) because you could try the most popular samples before the event gets more crowded. Plus you’ll have a chance to snag a table for your group to congregate around.
