The first official Bockfest fund-raiser is taking place this Friday in Over the Rhine. Pretzelfest will be at Venue 222 from 5-10 p.m. Local eateries like MOTR, Shadeau, Taste of Belgium, EAT WELL Catering, Skirtz & Johnson and Mecklenberg Gardens will showcase their unique sourdough creations. Admission is $35, which includes a sampling of freshly baked pretzels, beer/drink tickets, a freshly cooked brat and a chance to win the Ulitmate Bockfest Weekend.

Nothing washes down a pretzel like a plastic cup filled with Emancipator Doppelbock. This Moerlein brew is a German style Doppelbock that features six varieties of uniquely blended malts that create a robust dark lager with a toasted character and a complex hint of caramel and toffee. The keg will be tapped at 6 p.m. and the suds will flow until 10 p.m. Thought food and drink were enough? Wait! There’s more, like live music from the Cincinnati Dancing Pigs, Cincinnati’s premier jug band. Plus all of the proceeds go towards the cost of the 19th annual Bockfest. Your attendance guarantees yet another Cincinnati festival, which is a good enough reason to head to OTR.
