Last week was Cleveland Beer Week. I must say, it could become my favorite time of the year. Cleveland has a vibrant Beer/Brewing scene, and it is amazing to see the how the city celebrates it.
The events span throughout the city. Some places have tastings, other places tap a special keg, but Brewzilla is just a gigantic Beer tasting night. It is really something special.
Brewzilla has been taking place on the final Saturday of Beer Week at the Galleria downtown. Over 80 Breweries attended this year, and most brought two or more samples for everyone to try. $40 bought you a general admission ticket, 25 tasting vouchers, and a 3 oz. official Beer Week tasting glass.
My friends and I had a great time trying to try as many beers as possible. Some places took our tickets, and others did not, but it would be hard for me to say that we each tried more than 25 beers. I know…very sad…but the beers were a lot more filling that we ever could anticipate!
Complimentary food was provided by the Winking Lizard, and it was actually pretty good: Bratwurst Burgers and Black Bean Burgers.
Definitely a great event. I am already looking forward to next year!
