Cincinnati's very first festival devoted to hard seltzer was announced this fall, slated to take place on Nov. 28 at Oakley's Fowling Warehouse.
But due to the rising COVID-19 cases, accompanied by Gov. Mike DeWine's gathering restrictions, the festival has been postponed until April 17, 2021.
“We are obviously extremely disappointed to move this event, especially with all the excitement that was created around it. But with guest safety being our (No. 1) priority, this is the responsible and right action to take," said Fowling Warehouse owner Joe Frank.
Oakley's Fowling Warehouse — an entertainment franchise that capitalizes on the bowling-meets-football tailgating game — will host the inaugural Cincy Seltzer Fest at their 47,000-square-foot establishment with three sessions held throughout the day.
The event will feature 12 different hard seltzer brands including Truly, White Claw, Bud Light, Bud Light Platinum, Smirnoff, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Natural Light, Corona, Coors, Vizzy and Press, each with a variety of flavors.
Each ticket includes 10 hard seltzer tastings, two can tickets and range in price from $49.99 for a table for two guests to $99 for a table for four guests or $179 for a table for eight guests. Event-goers can also opt for the $349 VIP package for 10 people, which includes a fowling lane with the aforementioned features, plus two buckets of seltzers for the table.
Session times are 11 a.m.-2 p.m., 3-6 p.m. and 7-10 p.m. April 17, 2021.
For those who have already purchased tickets, they will be rolled over to next spring's event.
