2021 Bockfest 5K Participant Final Instructions

BOCKFEST

Bockfest is a uniquely Cincinnati event, celebrating the brewing of Bock Beer and the coming of spring. Bock Beer is traditionally brewed for special occasions. It is complex, hardy, traditionally has a higher nutritional content than most beer, and typically has a higher alcohol content. It has a particular link to spring because German monks drank it as a substitute for food during Lenten fasts.

Bockfest™ was created by the Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Company to celebrate the brewery’s introduction of Christian Moerlein Bock. The company eventually decided to make the launch of the bock beer into an entire festival.
