The festival boasts over 300 unique craft beers, with brews from around the corner and across the country alike. This year, the venue space has doubled to 225,000 square feet in the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
Tickets are available in regular, VIP and a new “connoisseur” level that includes food pairings. Tickets are available online and will increase in price as the event approaches, with the first price increase hitting December 26.
Volunteer opportunities are also available. A portion of the proceeds from all Ohio Beer Festival events in Columbus and Cincinnati benefits the Big Joe Duskin Music Foundation; in 2013, over $55,000 was raised.
