Cleveland Beer Week 2015

It's Cleveland Beer Week! It kicked off on Friday, and Mr. H and I plan to hit several beer-related events this week.

The seventh annual CLEVELAND BEER WEEK takes place from October 9-18, 2015 and features 350 keg tapping, beer sipping events throughout greater Cleveland. From special tappings, tastings and dinners to leisure activities and educational programs, there is something for everyone at CLEVELAND BEER WEEK.

Established in 2009, CLEVELAND BEER WEEK is a not-for-profit celebration that raises awareness of the craft beer industry and promotes patronage at local establishments. But they are also philanthropic---proceeds from all of CLEVELAND BEER WEEK's flagship events benefit the Malone Scholarship Fund. (from their website)

We've attended many of the events over the years, and we have some favorites. I never miss Stout Night at Deagan's Kitchen + Bar in Lakewood. Also, we enjoy the flagship event BREWzilla at the end of the week. It allows us to sample hundreds of different beers in one place. My brother will be in town visiting this week. Lucky him!

We kicked off this week of beer appreciation with a Beer, Cheese, and Chocolate Flight at Lilly Handmade Chocolates in Tremont on Saturday.
I wish that they did this year-round! The truffles and cheeses were expertly paired. A little bite of cheese, a little bite of chocolate, and then wash it all down with a sip of beer. This particular event is taking place all week, so stop in to their adorable shop on Starkweather. They are also serving beer floats.

So, what Beer Week events will you be participating in?
