Cleveland Winter Beerfest

It's freezing in Northeast Ohio (and most of the country), which means it's time to drink some libations to warm us all up! Cleveland must've had the same idea, since this weekend the city is hosting the inaugural Cleveland Winter Beerfest.

Held at the newly opened Cleveland Convention Center in downtown Cleveland, the beerfest will feature about 325 craft beers from 90 breweries across the country. Proceeds from the event will benefit The Music Education Society of Ohio, which supports Jazz Youth Education programs, the Big Joe Duskin Music Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to produce as many in-school music presentations as possible, and the Ohio Craft Brewers Association.

Regular admission tickets cost $35 advance or $45 day off (cash only) and include 25 samples plus a 5 oz. souvenir acrylic mug. VIP tickets cost $45 advance or $55 day of (cash only) and include 25 samples, a souvenir mug, early entry to the festival and access to specialty beers. Designated driver tickets also are available for $20.

The event is expected to draw more than 5,000 people so get your tickets early!

Cleveland Winter Beerfest hours:
Friday, Jan. 31 from 7:30-11 p.m.
Saturday, Feb. 1 from 7:30-11 p.m. (VIP admission at 6:30 p.m. both days)
