The first Short North Craft Beer Festival -- which is actually more like a bar crawl with special events along the way -- is set for Oct. 11-13 in the Short North Arts District in Columbus. The festival features drink specials, tap takeovers and beer events at Arch City Tavern, Bodega Gastropub, House Beer, North High Brewing and Short North Pint House.
The event benefits the Cystric Fibrosis Foundation.
Participants will receive a passport with a map of the festival, participating venue details and other information. They also will get event wristbands, which will get you access to food and drink specials for the whole weekend. Tickets are $15 in advance or you can pay $30 and also receive an official 2013 Short North Craft Beer Festival T-shirt. Tickets will be $25 at the door of the Short North Pint House.
