This event is sold out.

Great Lakes Brewing Co. is proud to participate in the Ohio Craft Brewers Association’s Winter Warmer Cask Day! In absence of the annual Winter Warmer Festival, GLBC will join dozens of other Northeast Ohio brewers in bringing the festival experience to our taprooms for a special one day-only cask and barrel aged tasting event.

Join us at the GLBC Beer Symposium as we tap three rare and vintage barrel aged beers for your sampling pleasure on Saturday, March 6, 2021. Each $20 ticket reserves you one hour’s worth of time in our Beer Symposium and includes:

One (1) commemorative 13.25 oz. Hugo stemless 2021 Winter Warmer glass (pictured below)

Three (3) 6 oz. pours of:
2020 Barrel Aged Blackout Stout
2019 Barrel Aged Alberta Clipper Porter
2017 Barrel Aged Tripel Dog Dare (bronze medal winner at the 2019 Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer!)
Note: these beers are kegged, not served on cask.

Opportunity to meet and ask questions with our Cicerone-certified Beer Educators

Ticket holders must be 21 or older with a valid ID to consume or purchase alcohol. No ID, no alcohol. No exceptions.

A mask must be worn to enter the event and when not seated at a table.

To help keep our staff and guests safe, health and safety guidelines set by the CDC and State of Ohio will be followed at all times. Each table will be spaced at least six feet apart and will be disinfected before the start of each session.

Four (4) hour-long tasting sessions will be available beginning at 12PM.

Each ticket allots for 60 minutes of sampling time beginning at the start of each tasting session. Please arrive to your session at least five minutes early to get checked in. We do not have our own parking lot, so plan your time of arrival accordingly. Public parking options can be found here.

Guests must depart the Beer Symposium at the end of their tasting session so that the space can be cleaned and disinfected before the start of the next session.

To ensure all guests have access to the beer, additional samples will not be available for purchase.

The event will be held inside our Beer Symposium. The Beer Symposium is located at 1951 W. 26th Street, Cleveland, OH.

The Gift Shop is located next door and will be open from 12PM – 6PM with beer and merchandise to-go.

The GLBC brewpub remains temporarily closed for the winter season. We look forward to sharing a pint with you at the bar soon!
