Cleveland – After successfully presenting almost 30 festivals in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and Virginia since 1996, All About Beer Magazine proudly announces the inaugural World Beer Festival-Cleveland. The festival takes place July 13 at North Coast Harbor Dock 32, Cleveland Browns North Parking Lot.
Unique from other beer festivals, the World Beer Festival focuses heavily on an education component. Festival attendees will be taken on a one-of-a-kind beer adventure in the “Art of Beer Village,” an area dedicated to beer education through food and beer pairings, ingredient samplings and educational seminars. The World Beer Festival fosters its mission to expand the beer community by providing an essential experience for a life enriched by beer.
Over the course of the 1-5 p.m. session, consumers will have the opportunity to sample more than 200 beers from more than 70 locally, nationally and internationally recognized breweries. This truly unique tasting event brings together the brewers and the beer that have shaped today’s craft beer culture. See why forbes.com, USA Today and Wired Magazine claim World Festival as one of the premier beer events in the country!
