From Blue Collar to Brew City

. October 8, 2013.

Known for it’s sports teams, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and inches of snow, Cleveland has been a major player in the craft brew industry for decades. Local innovators, brewmasters and chefs have created a culture unlike anywhere else. The 5th annual Cleveland Beer Week, October 18-26, will feature more than 350 craft beers showcasing local breweries. On the 18th, five different Cleveland neighborhoods participate in the Collaboration Kick-Off, offering attendees samplings of small
batch brews. Brewzilla, the final Brew Week event on October 26, will highlight more than 70 breweries. Visitors can enjoy a Belgian Beer Garden, perfectly paired appetizers and receive a 3 oz. custom glass. During your Cleveland Beer Week jaunt, don’t forget to check Ohio City, Cleveland’s up-and-coming brewery district. Proceeds from the five Flagship Events benefit the Malone Scholarship Fund, which provides higher education opportunities for regional youth. Tickets are limited for Flagship Events; please purchase them in advance.
