BrewFest 2021 Update!

Well here we are making our way through a cold and snowy February, and we’ve just had our first meeting to discuss our beloved event. Guess what? We’re going full steam ahead! Knowing there may be some health/safety protocols set in place by health officials, we’ll follow those of course, while still having LOTS of fun. The committee is back to work putting plans in motion, making phone calls, sending out e-mails and making good things happen! We’ll keep you posted as we go, so far we have some really interesting brewers coming out. Two of our three bands are booked, Austin Walking Cane, and Marina Strah, we’re hoping to re-sign our original headliner from last year, we’ll keep you posted as we go. Cheers!

BrewFest Home Brew Brew Off Lineup Set

For those of you who love home brewing, not much excites you more than the idea of having your OWN brew on tap at your favorite tap house, brew pub, and watering hole. For nine lucky and talented locals, that opportunity is near to becoming a reality…


Our Lineup for our Inaugural BrewFest Home Brew Brew Off is all set and the brewers are busily working to create a batch of beer that will earn them a draft handle at a local brewery!

Bascule Brewery & Public House, of Lorain, Avon Brewing Co. & Railroad Brewing Co., of Avon, and Franklin Brewing of Elyria will judge our challengers’ brews and decide WHO among them will earn their spot in BrewFest history!

Our competitors – Ryan Asik, Adam Bittner, Austin Clark, Ben Cohen, David Cousino, Jason Lowery, Ben Marthey, Adam Martin, and Doug Wiedmann – are just weeks away from being forever immortalized in BrewFest lore and quite honestly, if they’re not excited, we sure are!

So come on down to Black River Landing on Saturday, August 10th and join BrewFest Watefront District to be a part of the all the excitement, all the brews, and all the fun.

It’s sure to be a memorable occasion!


Your Brew Crew!
