Cleveland Winter Beerfest Returns to the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland January 24 – 25, 2020!
Cleveland, OH – Cleveland Winter Beerfest, the celebration of all things craft beer, returns to downtown Cleveland, January 24-25, 2020. The two-night celebration of craft beer features more than 350 local, regional and hard-to-find craft beers from more than 130 breweries including Great Lakes Brewing Company, Fat Head’s Brewery and many more. The festival offers concessions from local food trucks as well as live music both Friday and Saturday night – all inside the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.
“For seven years, Cleveland has allowed us to throw the biggest party of winter. We’re very thankful to the thousands that support us,” says event co-Founder Matt King. “Every year we work to top ourselves and this year is no different. From securing some unbelievable small batch beers to entertainment and more, we’re stepping up every aspect of the event.”
Proceeds from Cleveland Winter Beerfest benefit Ohio Music Education Society and The Music Settlement in their missions to expand music education to those in greatest need.
Hundreds of Beers in One Place for One Price
Spanning 150,000+ square feet at Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, Winter Beerfest features more than 350 different craft beers from more than 130 breweries to choose from! The event offers an inexpensive way to sample sometimes very expensive beers while learning about the beers from Brewers and Distributors. Some of the beers that will be on hand cost as much $18 a small bottle or $500 a keg. In total, over 10,000 Gallons of Beer will be dispensed at Cleveland Winter Beerfest! A full beer & spirits lineup will be released via www.clevelandbeerfest.com in mid-January, though every year includes surprise offerings as well.
Party with a Purpose
Proceeds from Cleveland Winter Beerfest benefit The Ohio Music Education Society and The Music Settlement in their missions to expand music education and therapy to those in greatest need.
“Winter Beerfest will be a great party for ten-thousand-plus people, absolutely. But giving back to the community is a core value for us.” says event co-founder Craig Johnson. “Music is central to the sense of fun and joy within our event, so it only makes sense to help spread that joy. At Winter Beerfest you can eat, drink and dance knowing that you’re also giving back.”
