Northwood Cider Co. and Hi-Wire Brewing will both host Scholastic Book Fair-style events for adults in August and September.

Remember the magic as the Scholastic Book Fair’s rolling metal shelves, piled high with new books with glossy covers and crisp pages, transformed your school’s library or gym into a treasure trove of stories waiting to be told? Or maybe you stood in line at the checkout eagerly waiting to blow all your mom’s money on pencils with smiley-face erasers and Harry Potter posters.

Well, Cincinnati’s kids-at-heart, get ready to relive that nostalgia as not one, but two, Greater Cincinnati breweries are planning Scholastic Book Fair-style events. And the best part: This time, you guys can drink.

Boozy Book Fair at Northwood Cider Co.

From noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday, grab a drink and browse a collection of books from Roebling Point Books. Northwood Cider Co.’s menu includes a selection of ciders ranging from dry to sweet, as well as cider-based cocktails. And to really make you feel like a kid again, grab a quesadilla from Daizie’s Dillas food truck to fuel up for your book-buying adventure.
