Dayton-area craft breweries are hosting a major beer tasting Saturday (July 13) to raise money for victims of the devastating tornadoes that blew through the region at the end of May.

The Dayton Strong Beer Bash runs from 6 to 10 p.m. at Carillon Historical Park, which is home to the Carillon Brewing Co.
