Cleveland Winter BeerFest

This inaugural event will take place at the Cleveland Convention Center January 31st and February 1st. Tickets go on sale December 1st. $45 VIP gets you in at 6:30 and access to specialty kegs. $35 general admission starts at 7:30. You get 25 tasting tickets and a 5 oz tasting glass with both. The event ends at 11. A majority of the beer list should be posted by mid December. VIP tickets purchased before 12/25 are the same price as General Admission! I will post more information as it becomes available (http://www.clevelandbeerfest.com/).

    We've really had fun in this group. As for the event the dance floor and karaoke were oneup on Brewzilla. I could easily have redeemed my ticket value on pounding J-O's and Jolly Pumpkin which amazingly were side by side. That said, man cannot survive on beer alone we need to be back on bicycles again.

    Fun evening of tasting some new beers. I'm glad many of you were able to find each other. It looks like you had a blast!

      Yeah. Millersburg Brewing had a really good IPA and will be returning to Cleve for Winter Warmer.

    This is a tricky event since it is the first Beerfest. I am unsure what to expect and do not know a good place to meet. I'm assuming it is going to be like BREWzilla where we will run into each other as we go around the convention center. I have a VIP ticket and I know my first stop is Jackie O's. For those of you getting in at 6:30, you are more than welcome to meet me there :-) For those of you who do not have my number and would like to try and meet up, please email me so I can provide it.

      It says you can buy them at the door if you buy them ahead of time though it's cheaper you can purchase online and print the ticket

      January 31, 2014

    • Samantha

      If you buy them at the door, it is cash only.

      I was going to look into when the Winter Warmer was happening this weekend. I'm glad you are super on the ball!

    1/31: I can potentially, hopefully, do.

    2/1: I'm watching the extended edition of the first Hobbit flick and then all three Lord of the Rings Extended Editions. In one sitting. It's brutal. I will be drinking lots of good beer though, like Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter straight from tha keg.

    • Jay

      Thank you Brian.

      I get it, plus it's tradition. I just like craft beer and the Beercyclists more. Yup, I went there.
