After successfully presenting almost 30 festivals in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Virginia since 1996,

All About Beer Magazine proudly announces

The inaugural World Beer Festival-Cleveland.

The festival takes place July 13 at North Coast Harbor Dock 32, Cleveland Browns North Parking Lot.

Unique from other beer festivals, the World Beer Festival focuses heavily on an education component. Festival attendees will be taken on a one-of-a-kind beer adventure in the “Art of Beer Village,” an area dedicated to beer education through food and beer
pairings, ingredient samplings and educational seminars. The World Beer Festival fosters its mission to expand the beer community by providing an essential experience for a life enriched by beer.

Over the course of the 1-5pm session, consumers will have the opportunity to sample over 200 beers from over 70 locally, nationally and internationally recognized breweries. This truly unique tasting event brings together the brewers and the beer that
have shaped today’s craft beer culture. See why Forbes.com, USA Today and Wired Magazine claim World Festival as one of the premier beer events in the country!


General Admission tickets cost $40 and include a tasting glass with 40 taste tickets for 2-oz samples from over 200 different beers.

    That was a good time; VIP tickets were ok, but we wouldn't buy them again. Cheaper to eat somewhere else DT for two. Did have access to a fancy port o' pot though! See you all soon!

    Excellent. I enjoyed talking to the actual brewstaff. It ended too early. One more hour would be perfect.

    Do the math: 40 2oz tastings = just over a 6-pack in 4 hrs.

      the main benefit of a beer fest like this is the opportunity to try several different breweries - in some cases styles that aren't easily available in the area.
