The fourth annual Cleveland Summer Beerfest returns June 15 to Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica.

“On a nice summer day, the venue is just fantastic, and what could be more Cleveland in summer than being along the water?" festival director Craig Johnson said in a news release. "Jacobs Pavilion is a perfect event complex for the summer edition of our winter beer festival. This one's less crowded, easy parking and more laid back but just as awesome."

Tickets went on sale this week.

The event, presented by Fat Head's Brewery, kicks off with the Friday Night Brews Cruise on Lake Erie aboard the Nautica Queen. It's the second year for the tasting aboard the ship.

Brews Cruise tickets are $60 and include up to seven 12-ounce beers and an Italian dinner. All people must be aboard by 7:30 p.m. and the ship returns to the dock at 10 p.m.

"We learned that most of the 300 attendees were there to enjoy the view topside on a beautiful summer night versus focusing on the sampling aspect, so we've adjusted accordingly and will have fewer beers but more quality," Johnson said.

The Beerfest will have two sessions: 2 to 5 p.m. or 8 to 11 p.m. Early admission tickets will get people in at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Tickets range from $35 to $55, depending on when they are purchased. For more details or to buy tickets, click here.

Proceeds from the festival will support the Music Education Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting music programs in underfunded elementary and junior high schools in Cleveland.
