CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Beer connoisseurs across the Tri-state will come together for this year's Winter Cincy Beerfest.

The annual event is expected to draw thousands to the Duke Energy Center and will last throughout the weekend. There will be over 350 different beers on tap from around the world and visitors will also have the opportunity to learn how to brew beer from the comfort of their own home.

All proceeds from this weekend's events will go towards the Big Joe Duskin Music Education Foundation which pays professional bands to play in elementary schools throughout the city.

Doors to Cincy Beerfest open at 7:30 p.m., and last call is at 10:40 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased here.

Designated drivers will also be available for those who choose to participate in the Beerfest tastings. Over 1,000 drivers have registered and will be given unlimited soft drinks and water throughout the event.
