Wednesday nights in Cleveland get a lot better this fall with the return of our popular Hoppy Hour beer series, back for its third year and with an extended 9 weeks!
Sample pale ales, dark lagers and other cool craft brews while discussing hops and horticulture with staff from the Botanical Garden and experts from Great Lakes Brewing Company and Beverage Distributors.
Special to Hoppy Hour, non-member tickets are just $5 after 5pm on Wednesday nights. Bottled and draught beer are $4 each while a tasting flight is $6.
Also, part of the fun will be seasonal dinner specials from the Garden Cafe, fire pits, lawn games and flashlight garden tours. So grab some friends, pick a spot by the fire and toast to the best midweek tradition Cleveland's autumn has to offer.
