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.

General Admission 1-5pm: $40
  • Tasting glass and forty taste tickets for 2oz samples from over 200 of the finest craft beers!
  • Access to the Art of Beer Village for food & beer pairings, educational seminars & cask ale
VIP Admission 12-5pm: $75
  • VIP preview hour 12-1pm
  • Tasting glass and forty taste tickets for 2oz samples from over 200 of the finest craft beers!
  • Access to the Art of Beer Village for food & beer pairings, educational seminars & cask ale
  • Festival commemorative glass
  • Private hospitality area and bathroom area
  • Bonus selection of beers not available to general admission
  • Upscale food buffet
The 4-hour general tasting event will feature over 200 beers from over 70 local, national and international breweries, all serving their finest beers. Enjoy beer exhibits, seminars, live music & more!
The Art of Beer Village sponsored by Great Lakes Brewing Company, will focus on Great Lakes’ Urban Farming Initiative, educating festival attendees on how to pair food with beer and create recipes from their own garden.  The Art of Beer Village provides a patron experience that not only showcases this initiative but also moving farm to table through chef demonstrations.Demonstrations will be held at 2 and 4pm, while food and beer samplings will take place throughout the entire festival.
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.

The lucky winner is Doug with comment #7!  Congrats and Cheers!

Sorry, I screwed up with this post last time. My name is Doug and I am from Massillon, OH. I really want to try the Jolly Pumpkin beers because I have gotten really into french and belgian style beers and my local shops do not have a lot them available.
