Fat Head's Brewery will likely open its tasting room in late May or early June, brewer Matt Cole said Friday. Fat Head's, which has a brewpub in North Olmsted, opened a production brewery in Middleburg Heights last year to distribute its beers and announced it would have a tasting room there as well.
Cole also confirmed that the Hippy Sippy Festival planned for May 4 at the production brewery has been canceled because of licensing and zoning issues. The brewery had announced the event earlier this year to celebrate its new imperial stout. The festival was to feature big beers and music from the 1970s.
Cole said he wanted to have beers from other brewers served at the event and that wasn't possible this year. Hippy Sippy will be held next year, he said.
