Columbus Winter Beerfest Returns January, Celebrating #10YearsOfBeers!

Columbus, OH – Celebrating #10YearsOfBeers, Columbus Winter Beerfest Presented by Taft’s Brewing Co. returns to downtown Columbus, January 17-18, 2020. The two-night celebration of craft beer features more than 350 local, regional and hard-to-find craft beers from more than 130 breweries including North High Brewing, Columbus Brewing Company, Taft’s and many more. The festival offers concessions from local food trucks as well as live music both Friday and Saturday night – all inside the Greater Columbus Convention Center. 

“For a decade Columbus has allowed us to throw the biggest party of winter. Every year we work to top ourselves but turning 10 is special,” says event co-Founder Matt King. “We’re thankful to the thousands of people that support Winter Beerfest. To say thank you, we’re pulling out all the stops. From securing some unbelievable small batch beers to upgrading the Connoisseur Reception space and so much more; we’re stepping up every aspect of the event.” 

Proceeds from the 10th Annual Columbus Winter Beerfest benefit Animal Rescue Partners and I Have a Dream Rescue Organization in their shared mission to find “forever homes” for animals in need. 

300+ Beers in One Place for One Price

Spanning 150,000+ square feet at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, Winter Beerfest features more than 350 different craft beers from more than 130 breweries to choose from! The event offers an inexpensive way to sample sometimes very expensive beers while learning about the beers from Brewers and Distributors.  Some of the beers that will be on hand cost as much $18 a small bottle or $500 a keg. In total, over 10,000 Gallons of Beer will be dispensed at Columbus Winter Beerfest! A full beer & spirit list will be released via www.columbusbeerfest.com  in mid-January, though every year includes surprise offerings as well.

Party with a Purpose

Proceeds from the 10th Annual Columbus Winter Beerfest benefit Animal Rescue Partners and I Have a Dream Rescue Organization in their shared mission to find “forever homes” for animals in need. 

 “Our tenth anniversary will be a great party for ten-thousand-plus people, absolutely. But giving back to the community is a core value for us.” says event co-founder Craig Johnson. “If you love animals like we do, you can eat, drink and dance knowing that you’re also giving back.”
