March First Brewing in Sycamore Township, Ohio, is celebrating five years in business this week by revisiting some of their favorite annual festivals all over one weekend, leading up to their actual anniversary on March 1. Each day there will be special taproom releases, music and even a pig roast on Saturday.
It’s a fun idea that reflects back on all that makes the brand what it is, and gives fans a day to hone in on the flavors and releases that they like best.
“The idea behind this five year celebration is for us to celebrate everything that March First has to offer. We take pride in being one of the only places in Cincinnati that makes beer, cider, hard seltzer and spirits. This series of mini festivals will allow people to pick their favorite part of what we do and celebrate with us.” said Josh Engel, Marketing Director for March First Brewing. “We have had such a great 5 years and want to thank all of our friends, family and customers. We’re looking forward to what the future holds for March First and our family of brands. We’re just getting started”
