BrewBoat CLE Back on the Cuyahoga River Just in Time for Memorial Day Weekend

As the weather continues to heat up (ish) in Cleveland, it's time to start talking about our favorite ways to drink alcohol while on/near a body of water.

One of those options, BrewBoat CLE, is back at the helm starting Friday, May 24.

The BrewBoat is similar to other pedal trolley excursion tours one can take on land throughout the city, but this one is made for the water specifically. It's the only water craft of its kind in the whole state of Ohio, and allows 14 to 16 passengers per voyage on the Cuyahoga River through downtown.

To be clear, these are BYOB tours and are for adults only. Ohio state liquor laws dictate that passengers can only bring up to 36 ounces of beer or 18 ounces of wine for the trip. Cups, ice and water are provided by BrewBoat.

Find out all about pricing, group trips and how much sunblock is too much right here. The boat trips, which last about an hour and 45 minutes, run through Labor Day Weekend. One final fact to note: there is no bathroom aboard, so plan accordingly.
