Six One Pour on the Move

One of central Ohio’s premier craft beer showcase events, Six One Pour, is moving to a new home. On Saturday, June 3, our beloved annual Ohio craft beer festival will be held at the Ohio History Center in Columbus. We expect 50 Ohio breweries to be on hand serving up samples of their summer seasonal brews, limited edition beers and even a few sips of Ohio history.

To commemorate our new partnership with the Ohio History Center, we’re encouraging breweries to bring a beer with historical significance to Six One Pour. That may be a pre-Prohibition style, a reimagined legacy brand, a beer honoring a famous Ohioan, or another tie-in at the brewer’s discretion. Many museum exhibits will be open during Six One Pour so you can sip on some of Ohio’s finest craft beers while learning about our state’s history.

Tickets for Six One Pour go on sale this Friday, April 7 at 7 a.m. That’s National Beer Day, by the way: on April 7, 1933, the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect, allowing the sale of beer in America eight months prior to the repeal of Prohibition. As a National Beer Day special, the first 100 early admission tickets sold on Friday, April 7 will be available for $45 each (a $20 discount off the regular price.)
