Promising all treats and no tricks, the Ohio Craft Brewers Association presents Ale-O-Ween, a Halloween-themed craft beer festival, at the Dayton Steam Plant on Saturday, October 21st from 6-9 pm. Thirty Ohio craft breweries will be on hand, pouring samples of seasonal styles and popular favorites.
Formerly known as Dia de las Cervezas, Ale-O-Ween will be the first public event at The Steam Plant, located at 617 E. Third Street in downtown Dayton. 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.
Jeff Heater, owner of The Barrel House, says “as an OCBA sanctioned event, it’s a great opportunity to sample beers from Ohio breweries that aren’t available in the Dayton market. Plus plenty of familiar favorites!”
