The North Market hosted Columbus’ first all-Ohio-brewed craft beer festival in 2006 with six capital city breweries sampling their locally brewed beers inside the market building. In the event each subsequent year we have added a brewery or two. Last year we had finally outgrown our indoor space and moved the event outside to Spruce Street adjacent to the market. We’re back on the street again this year bigger and better than ever with a record TWENTY Ohio breweries from around the state participating in the eighth annual Columbus Microbrew Festival. From north to south and a whole lot of central Ohio, the North Market brings Ohio’s craft brewers to Columbus to share their wares the weekend of September 13-15. Many thanks to the sponsors of the Columbus Microbrew Festival including our new presenting sponsor  Heartland Bank as well as  Columbus Alive, Heidelberg Distributing, Superior Beverage Group and Yelp Columbus.

Participating Ohio microbreweries include: Barley’s Brewing Company (Columbus), Barley’s Smokehouse & Brewpub (Columbus), Buckeye Lake Brewery (Buckeye Lake), Columbus Brewing Company (Columbus), Elevator Brewing Company (Columbus), Elevator Brewery Draught Haus (Columbus), Four String Brewing Company (Columbus), Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant (Columbus), Great Black Swamp Brewing Company (Toledo), Great Lakes Brewing Company (Cleveland), Homestead Beer Company (Heath), Hoof Hearted Brewing (Marengo), Lagerheads Brewing Company (Medina), Mt. Carmel Brewing Company (Cincinnati), North High Brewing (Columbus), Ohio Brewing Company (Akron), Seventh Son Brewing (Columbus), Thirsty Dog Brewing Company (Akron) and Weasel Boy Brewing Company (Zanesville). Representatives from each microbrewery will be on hand to answers questions about their signature drafts.

“We’re extremely proud our Microbrew Fest has become one of Ohio’s largest craft brew events,” said Rick Wolfe, Executive Director of the North Market. “It is also a very important fundraiser for NoMa, come on down and have an Ohio cold one!”

Beer tasting admission is $20 and includes a commemorative pint glass, ten tasting tickets and a $5 North Market food certificate.
