HopfenFest

Our 2nd Annual HopfenFest – A celebration of all things Hops! 

Facebook event click here

Local amateur and professional hops growers, we want YOU! Stop by our brewery to mingle and discuss our favorite flower. 

Not a Hops grower, stop by anyway!

HopfenFest pays homage to the hops harvest festivals that are widely celebrated in Germany. Local growers are encouraged to bring some sample hops (simply label your selection with the variety and growers information). 

We will do a special brew on site during this event, and use the local fresh hops to create our annual HopfenFest brew. But wait there's more – 10 entries will be randomly drawn to attend our September keg tapping of this very special HopfenFest brew.

Event is free – come celebrate all things Hops!

Then our wonderful audience gets a turn to on the mic to talk about why YOU are cheesed off! 

Hosts Sam Dee & Lisa Perrin have gathered a group of amazing performers to entertain then after intermission YOU, John Q. Audience, will have a chance to step up to the mic and share your troubles, thoughts & struggles while the hosts humorously untangle even the most pressing problem! So much self actualization works up an appetite but worry not!

The Swingos Celebrity Inn Documentary

The Swingos Celebrity Inn Documentary

Hosted by Emerge Microcinema

The film will be followed by a Q&A with the director, producers, and special guests.

ABOUT THE FILM:
The wild times of the 1970s and 80s Rock and Roll landmark Swingos Celebrity Inn of Cleveland, Ohio is chronicled in this documentary from its genesis in 1967 to its closing in 1985. Interviews with the original owner, rock stars like Michael Stanley and Southside Johnny, and Cleveland heroes like Big Chuck and Lil' Jon work together to chronicle the story of a restaurant and hotel that grew into a national sensation in downtown Cleveland at the same time as the city was falling to pieces. The river was burning, the theaters were closing, and the crime rate was climbing all while the WMMS radio station, rock critic Jane Scott, Scene Magazine, the Agora Music Hall, and Swingos created a burgeoning music scene that became the compass for Rock and Roll in the U.S.

TICKETS:
$8 advance (tickets available at emergemicrocinema.com)
$10 door

TIME:
The film starts at 8pm. The Brewery is open at 4pm.
