Cleveland just can't get enough beer it seems, and this weekend the summer version of the Cleveland Beerfest returns to Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica.

Doubling its brewery participants this year, the event includes more than 100 breweries, including local favorites like Masthead and Market Garden. Folks can also expect plenty of food trucks, silent disco and live music. And new this year, the event is adding a Brews Cruise on the Nautica Queen the night before the main event at 7:30 p.m. It includes dinner and beer samples for $55.

Then, with two sessions on Saturday, from 2 to 5 p.m. and also 8 to 11 p.m., festival-goers have just enough time to try 25 5-ounce samples. Cost is $40 before June 15 and is $45 the day of the event. Designated driver tickets, which cost $20, come with a $5 food truck coupon and also free bottled water and soft drinks.

Naturally, this thing goes down rain or shine, and is only open to those 21 and over (including designated drivers).
