My Cleveland Beer Week BREWzilla Beer Guide

Each and every time I go to a beer event like BREWzilla I have to come up with a plan. Today I'm going to give you a couple lists that will hopefully guide you around while you are at BREWzilla.

If are you are attending with a Brewer's Circle pass, most of the options in there are "can't miss", but there are a few notable standouts

Brewer's Circle Beers I won't miss: 
  • Alesmith: Old Numbskull Barley Wine
  • Bell’s: This One Goes to 11
  • Buckeye: Aquarius
  • Cellar Rats: Barrel Aged Sour
  • Great Lakes: Big Black Smoke
  • Jolly Pumpkin: De Viente
  • Sierra Nevada: Wine Barrel Aged Oliva Dubble
  • Stone: Mint Chocolate Imperial Stout
  • Victory: Saison du Buff
  • Weyerbacher: 17 Anniversary Bourbon Barrel Aged Grand Cru
The General Admission beer list is pretty staggering.  Since there are just a few hours left until BREWzilla kicks off, I'm going to just list what I see as the best of the bunch, most unique, or what is new to our area. Cheers!
