All About Beer: World Beer Fest Cleveland Info and Giveaway

First, where have I been?   To keep a long story short, the past 4 months have been simply crazy.  My wife and I were in the process of selling our house and madly looking for a new one.  During this time, we decided to save as much money as we could, so going out for dinner and drinks as often as we were had to end!  Although we have not yet found our next home,  I’m hoping to get back to writing more this summer since we’ll have a bit more free time, so look for some tasty food and craft beer posts on this site!

So, it looks like All About Beer Magazine is coming to town July 13th with their World Beer Fest.  This is the first year of this festival here in Cleveland, so it will be very interesting to see what this outside event has to offer to our outstanding craft beer community. To help with your decision making check out the events beer and brewery list.

Like other beer fests, World Beer Fest will have two sessions. Here is a quick run down of what you’ll get at each session.

The Art of Beer Village will also include a learning station that focuses on the element of beer making while allowing patrons to sample local ingredients and cask ale from local breweries as well as sit in on educational seminars given by some of the finest in the beer industry.

I’ve been asked by All About Beer Magazine to help spread the word for this event and they have given me two general admission tickets to giveaway to one lucky reader.
