Events: Ohio Fall Craft Beer Calendar

Five local events for beer aficionados in the Dayton/Cincinnati area:

September 19 -- Beer Judge Certification Program Training Class
Held at Belmont Party Supply. For more info, contact Bat Bateman at or 845-0572.

September 19-20 -- Zinzinnati Oktoberfest
What better way to celebrate Oktoberfest than to head to Ohio's largest Oktoberfest? Modeled after the festival in Munich in a Midwestern city known for its German heritage. For the rationale for why Oktoberfest is in September, check out this write-up I did a couple of years ago.

September 26-27 -- Dayton Art Institute Oktoberfest and Homebrew Competition
A week later, head 50 miles north to Dayton's largest Oktoberfest. Benefit the Art Institute and is always a good time. This year, they've added a homebrew contest.

October 24 -- Miami Valley Beer Fest
Miami Valley Beer Fest is a non-profit, charitable, craft beer event to benefit the Resident Home Association (RHA). RHA is working in conjunction with Belmont Party Supply, a leader in the Dayton craft beer scene for 25 years, to bring you an educational and safe day of fun, food, and most importantly craft beer.

Miami Valley Beer Fest will be held indoors at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in the Roundhouse from 2pm - 6pm on October 24th, 2009. There will be a limited amount of tickets available at participating bars and restaurants, as well as Belmont Party Supply. (from the MV Beer Fest website)

November 7-14 -- Arrogant Bastard National Competition Week
Help prove that Boston's Bistro & Pub is the most arrogant pub in the world. Boston's has held the title for the last two years and is trying for three-peat. Dave's looking to move as much Arrogant Bastard as possible, so look for some insane deals that week.
