2015 Toledo Beer Week

May 11 - 17, 2015




Toledo Beer Week will have more than 25 craft beer-related events throughout its run. From beer-themed sandwiches and doughnuts to tap takeovers at area bars and restaurants, organizers of the event left no keg untapped. There will be regional and national favorites, Ohio and Michigan beer nights, beer and food pairings, homebrewing demonstrations, and a beer festival and bar crawl on the same day.

Basically, if it has to do with craft beer, Toledo Beer Week’s got it covered. And 100 percent of the money raised goes to charity.

Members of the organizing committee — Amelia Jarrett, Shannon Mohr, Bobby DeSeyn, and Evan Bates — have chosen the Collingwood Arts Center to be the beneficiary of the city’s first beer week.

“The arts and craft beer go well together, as well as the arts and Toledo,” said DeSeyn, district sales manager at Cavalier Distributing.

And crafts or making things go well with craft beer. The mindset.

The Birmingham Craft Beer Fest, which will feature American and European beers, will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at the Hungarian Club, 224 Pain Ave., East Toledo. Tickets are $25 for 10 samples and include a pretzel necklace.

The Downtown Pub Club Cheers to Ohio Bar Crawl will have nine participating bars focusing on different Ohio beers. The pub crawl starts at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Participants and featured brewers are Pizza Papalis, 519 Monroe St., Jackie O's (Athens); Ye Olde Cock ‘n Bull, 9 N. Huron St., Fat Head's (North Olmstead); Packo's at the Park, 7 S. Superior St., Thirsty Dog (Akron); Blarney Irish Pub, 601 Monroe St., Great Lakes (Cleveland); Ye Olde Durty Bird, 2 S. St. Clair St., Elevator (Columbus); Bronze Boar, 20 S. Huron St., Catawba Island (Port Clinton); Home Slice Pizza, 28 S. St. Clair St., Maumee Bay; Mutz, 27 S. Broadway, Maumee Bay; Table Forty 4, 610, Monroe St., Rivertown (Cincinnati).

The Capstone event is split into two cask ale sampling sessions Sunday at Maumee Bay's Warehouse, 201 Morris St., near the Oliver House. Each session will be capped at 200 people. Tickets are $25, and includes 12 sample and food.

More than 20 cask ales will be available to sample. The first session is from 1 to 3 p.m. and the second is from 4 to 6. Entertainment also will be provided.

Some of the events:

Here are some of the highlights:

Good grief. toledobeerweek.org requires a super computer to view the frigging bloated website. Why not keep the damn thing simple so that it loads fast? I gave up on viewing it. Of course, it requires JavaScript in order to function. Absurd. It's beer not a video game.
