Today marks the one-year anniversary of the closing of so many of Cleveland’s terrific independent music venues. To mark the occasion, the Grog Shop, Beachland Ballroom, Happy Dog and Mahall’s 20 Lanes will all open to sell four packs of Lights on Lager, a dry-hopped lager that was created in a unique partnership with the Jolly Scholar Brewery and the Baenum hop farm. Proceeds from sales of the beer benefit the clubs.

The places will have merch for sale too.
