Tickets are on sale now for the eighth annual Winter Warmer Fest, an annual fundraiser for the Ohio Craft Brewers Association. The event is 2 to 6 p.m. March 1 at Windows on the River in Cleveland.



The festival features winter and limited edition brews. "The popular cask ale area will be returning, as well as some other unusual beers that you'll find first at this festival," Willoughby Brewing brewmaster Rick Seibt said.



The brewery and beer lineup will likely be released after the first of the year.



Tickets are $45 and include a souvenir glass, 20 tasting tickets for four-ounce samples and live entertainment by blues artist Austin Walkin' Cane. Designated driver tickets are $12 and include a non-alcoholic beverage. There also will be food trucks participating.
