Cleveland Beer Week kicks off Friday (Oct. 18) — the start of nine days worth of special beer releases, dinners and meet-and-greets with brewers. There’s even a beer and comic book pairing. Yes, beer and comics. The annual homage to beer concludes Oct. 26 with Brewzilla, a major tasting festival in downtown Cleveland.
“It’s like a local craft beer love fest,” Fred Karm, owner and brewer at Hoppin’ Frog Brewery in Akron, said about the week. “Everyone loves to support local businesses and this is a real focus on local beer.”
