Cincy Winter BeerfestBoth Matt and I will be on site this Friday, February 13th, at the Cincinnati Winter Beerfest.  What is the Cincinnati Winter Beerfest, you ask?

It’s over 350 craft brews and brewers and thousands of beer enthusiasts all gathered under one roof at the Duke Energy Convention Center to sample, discuss, and enjoy some of the nation’s best brews.

Modern Thirst and friends will be in attendance, and in a Modern Thirst first, we may record a little video of the event of readers from far away locales to get a better sense of the festival.

This is good timing for us here, as we’re currently working on some enhancements to our beer coverage on the site.  We’re planning to bring you more craft beer content on a regular basis, including potentially adding a new writer or two.

Please be responsible.  We know this event is going to be tons of fun, but don’t ruin your fun or anyone else’s by driving under the influence.  Use the code MODERNTHIRST15 for $20 off your first UBER ride.  Details.

In the meantime, if you’re in Cincy this weekend and attending the Beerfest, say hi to us if you see us, and enjoy a cold one!  Cheers!
