Held in the parking lot of Van Aken Center in Shaker Heights, the Van Aken Beer Garden, a bi-weekly event, celebrates summertime with music, food, beer, wine, cocktails, retail vendors, and activities for the kids. This year, the series kicks off today and will run through Sept. 9. Admission is free and the event is both bike and pet friendly. It takes place from 6 to 10 p.m. In the case of rain, the event will be held inside Club Rock. A portion of the proceeds raised from the beer garden will go to a hosting non-profit.
