Bookhouse Brewing, a small Ohio City brewery and taproom that focuses on “innovative and approachable beers and ciders,” has teamed up with Cleveland Opera Theatre to present Ballads and Brews, an upcoming event that will feature operatic arias and duets paired with specific Bookhouse beers.

"Opera is NOT just a fat lady with horns, and what better way to find out than to hear it in a brewery?" reads a press release about the collaboration that convinces the event will be worth checking out.

Ballads and Brews will feature performances by Cleveland Opera Theatre soprano Megan Slack and tenor Brian Skoog along with pianist Susan Schoeffler.

The event takes place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 28, at the brewery.

Tickets cost $30 and include a beer flight.
