Cleveland Beer Week is an annual celebration of beer! There will be all kinds of cool beer-related happenings around our town: http://www.clevelandbeerweek.org

The week culminates in BREWzilla, a beer festival at the Galleria at Erieview. Over 70 breweries (including a bunch of Ohio operations) bring their handiwork to share. General admission is 50 bucks, and you get a tasting glass and 25 beer tickets for tasting-size pours (though, as is wonted, that number doesn't usually end up limiting how many tastings you can get). There's some kind of food, too, perhaps in some kind of a beer garden.

You can also buy "Designated Driver" tickets if you're not so much of a beer enthusiast. They're $15 and include the food and non-alcoholic beverages. There are usually some ciders and fruity lambics and stuff though.
