CLEVELAND — Cleveland Winter Beerfest is back this weekend, so grab your beer-drinking pals and head downtown.
The two-night event – which takes place Friday, Jan. 24 and Saturday, Jan. 25 at the Huntington Convention Center – offers more than 350 local, regional and hard-to-find craft beers from more than 130 breweries.
Among the featured breweries include Great Lakes Brewing Company and Fat Head’s.
See the full list of all available beer at the event HERE.
By the end of it all, organizers say more than 10,000 gallons of beer will be dispensed at the event.
Food trucks will also be on site just in case all that beer makes you hungry.
One very important note to keep in mind: All attendees must be at least 21 years old, and a valid ID is required to enter the event.
Day-of tickets are $65 for early admission (7-11:30 p.m.) or $55 for regular admission (8-11:30 p.m.), which includes 25 tickets for samples. "Designated Driver" tickets offer no alcohol, but access to the event, free water and/or soft drinks and a $5 food voucher redeemable at any food vendor.
“For seven years, Cleveland has allowed us to throw the biggest party of winter. We’re very thankful to the thousands that support us,” event co-founder Matt King said in a press release. “Every year we work to top ourselves and this year is no different. From securing some unbelievable small batch beers to entertainment and more, we’re stepping up every aspect of the event.”
Proceeds from the event will "benefit Ohio Music Education Society and The Music Settlement in their missions to expand music education to those in greatest need."
