Oh to be Michael Keaton in Multiplicity for just one day. Saturday will be a huge day for beer lovers in Ohio, but unfortunately there's no way to be in Cleveland, Dayton and Cincinnati at the same time. Here's the beer event rundown:
-- Fat Head's Brewery & Saloon in North Olmsted will hold its annual IPA Fest. The beer tasting features hoppy beers and only hoppy beers. There are two tasting sessions: from 1 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m. and awards are handed out for the best. Tickets are $30.
-- Big Beers & Barley Wines is from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. As the name implies, this beer tasting is filled with big beers and barley wines. Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Admission includes 20 tastings, a tasting glass, door prizes, raffles and live entertainment. The event benefits the Resident Home Association of Greater Dayton.
-- The Cincinnati craft beer scene is expanding rapidly and local brewers want to celebrate that. Cincinnati's Craft Beer Oktoberfest -- featuring only Cincinnati-made beers -- will be held from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Listermann Brewing. The tasting will feature Mt. Carmel, Rivertown, Blank Slate, Triple Digit, Christian Moerlein, Rock Bottom, Cellar Dweller and Wiedemann. There's no cost to attend. You just pay for the beer you drink.
