CINCINNATI -- The cold and snow might have pushed it back, but it wasn’t enough to derail the Cincinnati Beer Week Tap Room Trolley completely.
Organizers said the event has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23.
The event’s Board of Trustees said they felt those dates would give patrons the best chance to enjoy the experience without issue.
All of the tickets sold for the original dates and times will be honored for the rescheduled dates, at the same times and for the same scheduled tour routes.
Organizers said they regret any problems the postponement may have caused.
To accommodate increased demand for the event, CBW trustees added two additional tours for Sunday, March 23, as well. Organizers said one bus will be added to each route.
More information will be announced as soon as ticket sales are available again. Anyone with questions or concerns are asked to contact CBW at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beer Week collaboration beer released
The trolley might be delayed but the special Beer Week beer is already on draft at bars across the city.
This year 13 local brewers gathered at Christian Moerlein’s production facility in Over-the-Rhine to make an Imperial Pilsner for Beer Week and the Winter Beerfest.
CBW said the all the kegs from the batch have been sold and distributed. It’s also available in bottles at several bottle shops and grocery stores.
The beer – called Hostivit – is a traditional Bohemian Pilsner with a “rich, complex maltiness” with “rounded bitterness” and a spicy flavor from a generous addition of Saaz hops.
Beer Week organizers said the name Hostivit plays on the origins of the Pilsner beer. “Host” means guests and “vitat” means welcome. According to CBW trustees, Hostivit was the last of seven mythical princes of the first historical Bohemian/Moravian dynasty.
Hostivit weighs in at 7.3% ABV with an IBU rating of 31.
