Drink Beer, Feel Good

It is not often that we get a chance to socialize with friends and make a difference at the same time. The Glass City Beer Festival is Northwest Ohio's only 100%-for-charity beer festival. To be successful our event requires year-long planning and more than 200 local volunteers. We invite you and your friends to join us for this fun filled evening of craft beers, live music, and memories. We can't thank you enough for your support of our event, and we look forward to seeing you.
