Cincinnati craft brewery Rhinegeist is hosting an inaugural ball of all that is sparse in beer. On October 28th, they will honor the extraordinary, the unobtainable, and the unexpected by curating hard-to-get-your-hands-on brews made by well known breweries from across the country at Rare Beer Fest.
50 hand-selected breweries will journey to Rhinegeist with their rarest brews (sour, wild, imperial, hoppy, barrel aged, fruitified, funky and similarly rarified) in tow for a magnificent day of craft beer celebration. Much of what will be poured at Rare Beer Fest beer is not available in Ohio under normal circumstances, but this will not be your normal beer festival.
Rare Beer Fest will kick-off at 12pm with a special early access session for VIP ticketholders, followed by General Admission entry at 1pm.
