Chillwave goes for the gold:
Between the polar vortexes (vortices?), the black ice, and the potholes, I am more than ready for warmer weather. I find myself fantasizing about white sand beaches every time I pop open a bottle of Chillwave!
Fortunately, an early indicator of the coming spring has already arrived: the beer bracket. Our very own Chillwave Double IPA has made it to the third round of the annual Brewing News National Imperial IPA Championship. It's a judged competition, but you can keep your eye on it and print your own bracket here. Win or lose, I'm thrilled that Chillwave is back, and it's been so exciting watching our fans reunite with our hoppy Seasonal.
If you see our beers pop up in any brackets, feel free to share them with @GLBC_Cleveland, or leave a link in the comments section below.
St. Patrick's Day plans:
Snow or no snow, our annual St. Patrick's Day celebration is on! We'll have our favorite Irish-style beers on tap, an Irish-themed menu, and a whole day of live music:
Ceud Mile Failte: 12PM - 3PM
High Strung Irish Band: 5PM - 8PM
Cleveland Firefighters Memorial Pipes & Drums: 7PM
We'll also offer limited free shuttle service to and from the St. Patrick's Day Parade downtown. Shuttle service will be available to and from the parade, which starts at 1:05PM. Look for the GLBC Fatty Wagon at W. 6th and Superior Avenue! The shuttle will run from 10AM to 5PM.
Win some new gear!

Post pictures of your decorations, recipes, and Conway's Irish Ale haul at friendsofglbc.com, or Tweet your pictures using #friendsofglbc and you could win one of our awesome new St. Patrick's Day shirts and a couple of Conway's temporary tattoos so you can wear your Irish pride on your sleeve!
