The fourth annual Columbus Craft Beer Week is coming up May 11-19! Every day this week we’ll be breaking down the Best of Beer Week so you can set your sud-soaked schedule and snag a spot at ticketed events before they sell out. Up first: collaboration beer releases!

Confluence IPA (Central Ohio brewers)
The official Columbus Craft Beer Week 2018 collaboration beer is Confluence, a New England-style IPA brewed by more than a dozen Central Ohio brewers (read more about Confluence here.) Look for this brew on tap and in cans around Columbus throughout Beer Week and at Six One Pour: The Ohio Craft Beer Fest!

Milkshake IPA (Ill Mannered/Nowhere In Particular)

Ill Mannered Brewing Co
Ill Mannered teamed up with Nowhere In Particular to develop the juicy, creamy and fruity Milkshake IPA. Look for it on tap at other venues throughout Beer Week as well.

Saturday, May 12, 11am-3pm
101 Beer Kitchen (Dublin, Gahanna, Westerville)
Columbus’ coolest (and only?) breakfast blogger Nick Dekker teamed up with 101 Beer Kitchen and Platform to brew In the Nick of Time, a Strawberry Roggenbier set to release at all three 101BK’s simultaneously with retro brunch dishes to pair.

Sideswipe and Lineage Collab Brew and Bike Ride

Sideswipe and Lineage brewed two different versions of the same beer — both used a grain bill focused on Jasmin rice but each brewery put their own spin on the beer by choosing the yeast and hop bill. There is a bike ride from each brewery to the other to ensure that you get to try them both!
Tickets: $25
