Cincinnatians’ beer consumption once more than doubled that of the national per capita average, making it one of the most prolific brewing cities in the U.S. today, as the largest and oldest festival of its kind, Bockfest fondly recalls that amazing beer heritage. With 2022 marking the 30th year, the full celebration is back with three days of merriment. Festivities include live entertainment, historic walking tours, a 5k race, delicious food, a homebrew competition and, of course, plenty of bock beer.
