DAYTON, Ohio – Promising no tricks and even more treats than last year, the Ohio Craft Brewers Association presents the second annual Ale-O-Ween festival at the Dayton Steam Plant on Saturday, October 20 from 6-9 p.m.
Building on the success of 2017’s inaugural Halloween-themed craft beer festival, forty Ohio craft breweries will be pouring samples of seasonal styles and popular favorites. Ale-O-Ween will also take advantage of the Steam Plant’s outdoor space this year, allowing for more attendees and more participating breweries.
Early bird discount tickets will go on sale for one day only, Monday, August 20, with general admission tickets available for $30 each and 5 p.m. early admission tickets available for $40 each. Starting Tuesday, August 21, general admission tickets can be purchased in advance for $40 and early admission tickets for $50. All regular admission and early admission ticket holders will receive a souvenir glass and tasting tickets for 20 four-ounce samples.
New this year is the Ale-O-Ween Six-Pack: purchase five regular or early admission tickets, get one ticket of equal value free. Designated driver admission is also available for $15 and includes a food truck voucher. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.beerfesttickets.com/aleoween2018
In addition to craft beer samples, Ale-O-Ween will feature live music by The AmpFibians and Team Void, food from Pa’s Pork and The Drunken Waffle, face painting, tarot card reading and a costume contest. Ohio On Tap passport app users in attendance will earn five bonus passport stamps to be used to redeem prizes from the Ohio Craft Brewers Association.
Lyft is offering discounted rides to and from Ale-O-Ween. Riders can enter promo code ALEOWEEN18 for 25% off two rides (up to a $5 discount per ride) on the day of the event.
Last year’s Ale-O-Ween was the first public event at The Steam Plant, located at 617 E. Third Street in downtown Dayton, and will return to the venue for this year’s festivities. Built in 1907, the former Dayton Power & Light power-generating facility has been renovated for use as an event venue, carefully preserving the unique architectural features such as high ceilings, exposed beams, brick walls and iconic floor-to-ceiling windows.
This year’s participating breweries include:
