Columbus Microbrew Festival at the North Market – this weekend

Posted by CMH Gourmand on September 8, 2008


For more news on what is going on this fall at the North Market, listen to Columbus Foodcast at the web site or go to i-Tunes.

The Third Annual Columbus Microbrew Festival will be adding Friday evening to the festivities this year. The Columbus Microbrew Festival will be held outside the North Market on Friday, September 12th from 5 – 9pm. On Saturday, September 13th from noon -7 pm, the beer will be served on the second floor.

Returning for the event are Barley’s Brewing Company (Ale House No. 1), Barley’s Smokehouse & Brewpub (Ale House No. 2), Columbus Brewing Company, Elevator Brewing Company, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, Hoster Brewing Company and Weasel Boy Brewing Company. Representatives from each microbrewery will be on hand to pour samples of their signature drafts.

The list of brewers should be no surprise to anyone that strolls through or drinks in the Short North and the Brewery District. There is a wild card in this mix of microbrews. The odd barrel out in this group is from Zanesville – Weasel Boy Brewing. This brewery has been around for just over a year but there is a lot of experience behind their craft beers. Take a look at their web site to get a bit of back story, it may make you appreciate their brews even more.

Beer tasting admission is $15 and includes a commemorative pint glass and 10 tasting tickets. Discount coupons good for $2 off the tasting admission fee will be available at all participating microbreweries. Extra tasting tickets will be available for 50¢ each. Tickets are available at the door each day. The event is free to anyone not tasting beer.

Music and other activities are featured each day.

Local artist Clinton Reno creates the North Market poster artwork. The poster for the Microbrew Festival event looks great this year. The posters are available for sale. This one would be worth buying to have a piece of the North Market at home.

    I happen to personally know Jay and Lori Wince, who own Weasel Boy – and you will not be disappointed in their beers, Jay has been brewing for quite some time, and I believe Weasel Boy has been around for more than a year, but only open to the public for less than year.
