The Lorain Growth Corp. and Franklin Brewing Co. are launching a beer festival in downtown Lorain next month. Called the Waterfront District Brewfest, it will run from noon to 6 p.m. Aug. 23 on Seventh Street.
“The point is to get some people in downtown Lorain,” said Howard Ross, who’s helping to organize the event and is co-owner of Franklin Brewing in Elyria. “A lot of times, people think Lorain isn’t a great area, which is not really true. They’ve done a lot of development and there are a lot of neat things going on there like Black River Landing.”
Ross is still nailing down which breweries will participate, but he said the focus will be on Ohio-made craft beer. In addition to the beer, there will be live music and food trucks. Tickets are $25 and will include 15 tasting tickets and a souvenir glass. There will be only about 500 tickets sold.
