Brew-ha-ha to feature new, local brews and foods

Posted

Grab some steins and get ready for a night of relaxing fun as the Museum Center at Five Points brings Brew-ha-ha back to Cleveland for 2018 on Saturday night.

Brew-ha-ha is an annual event that features local beer and food from Cleveland and surrounding areas.

Mitch Mizell, Museum Center curator, praised local breweries and distributors, who are the backbone of the event.

“We just have such a wide variety of good, local places that either make or distribute beer,” Mizell said.

Attendees are given a small mug for taste testing any and all of the beers included with the event. They'll also have the opportunity to sample some good eats from local vendors.

Local food vendors include: G Daddy’s BBQ; CBC Cleveland; The Village Bake Shop; Shane’s Rib Shack; and Monkey Town Donuts.

The event is ultimately a fundraiser for the Museum Center that draws a large crowd, not only to try the beers, but also to support local breweries.

Brewers and distributors include: Tarver Distributing; Cherokee Distributing; Mash & Hops; Chattanooga Brewing Company; Ocoee Winery; Big River Grille & Brew Works; Monkey Town Brewing Company; and Dry Valley Brewing.

“All of these organizations are community-focused, and care about their towns,” Mizell added.

Mizell also noted how the growing interest in craft beer has shaped their event.

“This event brings a unique aspect to Cleveland, because I know that we have a lot of beer lovers out there, but also people are trying more new things and that plays into craft beer production so well,” he said. “I think the interest has really grown in beer drinkers as it has with brewers trying new things.”

According to Mizell, IPAs are growing in popularity, as are beers like porters, stouts and even more exotic creations like sour beers.

He further stated how events such as Brew-ha-ha really serve to show the community what types of beers are out there, as well as the sheer amount of work that goes into their creation.

Brew-ha-ha is Saturday, Feb. 10, from 4-8 p.m. at the Museum Center and costs $35 for Museum Center members and $50 for nonmembers.
