United Way of Summit & Medina will host Summit Beerfest on November 4 at Springside Athletic Club. Returning for its second year, the event brings together local breweries to showcase their beers and gives attendees a chance to vote for their favorite brew. The winning brewery will take home the more than six-foot-tall Best On Tap trophy.
Taking place on an indoor turf field, Summit Beerfest gives guests one last tase of summer before winter sets in. Attendees will enjoy live rock music by Cleveland’s Breakfast Club, cornhole and other games, Swenson’s and other tailgate-inspired foods, spirit tastings and more. Last year’s event attracted more than 300 guests and 19 participating breweries.
Tickets, which include food and drinks, are on sale now for $65. Designated driver tickets, which include entry and food, but no alcohol, are also available for $35.
