July 30, 2013 –CLEVELAND, OHIO—Great Lakes Brewing Company (GLBC) is thrilled to announce details of the official GLBC 25th Anniversary Block Party, which will be held on September 6, 2013 from 11AM to 9PM at the GLBC Brewpub, Market Avenue, and Market Square Park in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood.

The block party will take place on GLBC’s official 25th anniversary, and is free and open to the public. Attendees can expect live music by a diverse lineup of local musicians, a free photo booth from 4PM to 8PM and free face painting. Merchandise and fresh food from local vendors and restaurants, and GLBC’s award-winning lagers and ales will be available for purchase. A special 80s-themed set by Cleveland’s The Spazmatics will cap off a whole day of fun and entertainment for all ages (after all, GLBC was founded in 1988). Market Avenue and Market Square Park will be shut down for the day, making the 25th anniversary celebration a true block party.
