Our 15 Favorite Beer Week Events Happening This Weekend (October 18-21)


Cleveland's nine-day Beer Week celebration has become one of the most anticipated beer festivals in the country.

Every October, hundreds of area bars, restaurants, and grocers pull out all the stops to give this blessed city an extra boost of craft beer lovin'.

That time, kind sirs and ladies, is upon us once again.

To help you manage the first leg of the glorious slosh fest that is Cleveland Beer Week, we've compiled a list of our favorite, not-to-be-missed weekend happenings.

From opening celebrations, to food and drink pairings, to meet-n-greets, and trivia nights- we've got you completely and utterly covered for the next four days.*

*We couldn't help but tag some Monday night events onto this line-up, as they really are quite stellar. But really, who's complaining? By Monday morning, you might not remember what day it is anyway.

Enjoy yourself this weekend- and cheers, Cleveland.
