As its first summer at Newport on the Levee comes to a close, 16 Lots Southern Outpost is throwing a big, two-day, end-of-summer bash, complete with mimosas, fireworks and the Levee’s first-ever Pride event.

The brewery’s Labor Day weekend party kicks off Saturday, Sept. 2 with a drag brunch, featuring some of Cincinnati’s most beloved performers, along with 16 Lot’s brunch fare, mimosas and Bloody Mary bar.

“We’re excited to bring this show not only to our own stage, but to the Levee as a whole,” Mike Burton, 16 Lots founder and co-owner, said in a press release. “I’m really proud that our brewery will be the first establishment in the complex to take this inclusive, community-building step … the first of many to come.”

The show starts at noon and tickets are $18, plus tax and fees, but attendees can arrive for brunch as early as 10 a.m.

And on Sunday, Sept. 3, the party continues with a Western & Southern/WEBN Fireworks watch party.

“I watched the fireworks from our deck here last year, when we were getting ready to build out the brewery and renovate the bar and restaurant … that barge they launch from is right in front of us on the river,” Del Hall, 16 Lots co-owner and chief commercial officer, said in the release. “The view from here is simply the best there is, period. And with the amazing food, parking discount and live band we’ve got lined up, why would you go anywhere else?”

The party Sunday starts at 4 p.m. and the all-inclusive ticket guarantees you a spot to watch the fireworks, as well as all-you-can-eat fare, including a raw bar, carving station, appetizers and more and discounted parking. Following the fireworks, funk-soul-rock ensemble Dat Band will take the stage for a two-and-a-half-hour show. Tickets for the watch party are $199 and can be bought here.
