About Bockfest
Bockfest is first and foremost, a community event. In addition to throwing a great, three day long party, our goal is to celebrate and support our local community. We work to grow Bockfest every year, to increase attendance, to grow the parade, to add events, and to raise more money to spread the word. However, as enthusiastic as we are about growing the festival and sharing it with an increasingly wider range of America, we are unwavering in our commitment to keep Bockfest unique, authentic and local. There is no charge to the public to attend Bockfest and we work to include all types of local businesses because our goal is to promote Over-the-Rhine, its rich heritage, and the people who live and work here to as broad of an audience as we can reach.

Friday, January 17 | 7:00 – 9:00pm
At The Oscar Event Center at Jungle Jim’s International Market

There will be over 40 different types of barrel aged beers available from a variety of brewers. Available for sampling will be rare beers covering a variety of tastes and styles, all aged to perfection. We’re sure you’ll find some new favorites as well as enjoy the classics. A brandy snifter, the glass of choice for a true barrel aged experience, will be provided to commemorate this event. So get your glass and experience some of the finest barrel aged beers around!

Barrel aged beer has a rich history dating back many centuries. For over 400 years, beer has been stored in barrels and aged to a bold, complex taste. Barrels are often made of oak and many have been previously used for bourbon or wine to further enhance the layers of flavor. Barrel aged beer can mature anywhere from a couple of weeks to over a year. There are no exact rules when it comes to producing a quality barrel aged beer, but the end result is a brew that holds its own against the toughest critics.
