Beer Tasting Weekend – Nov. 21st & 22nd

I am pleased to announce the next in our series of Beer Tasting Weekends, to be held November 21st and 22nd. Like all of our tasting events, this is no ordinary beer tasting dinner. This event spans two full days of good food and great beer, starring two great Ohio breweries.

Dinner Friday night features the return of Great Lakes Brewing out of Cleveland. Great Lakes holds a staple spot on the Raven’s Roost Pub menu, and was a smash hit when featured in our July tasting event. Lydia Johnson from the brewery will be joining us once more to discuss their beer lineup. She will be featuring Eliot Ness, Commodore Perry, Blackout Stout and the ever popular Christmas Ale!

Saturday’s dinner will feature another northeast Ohio brewery, Hoppin’ Frog out of Akron. Hoppin’ Frog brews a number of great beers, including one of my personal favorites, the Silk Porter. We will be joined by Hoppin’ Frog’s Head Brewer Lee Gidley, who will be sharing Outta Kilter Scotch Red, Frosted Frog Christmas Ale, BORIS the Crusher and Karminator Imperial Dopplebock with us. As a fun trivia fact, the wooden beer barrel that houses our taps in the Raven’s Roost Pub started its life as one of Hoppin’ Frog’s aging barrels.

As has become traditional in our beer tasting events, we will have an informal tasting Saturday at noon featuring some of our favorite non-Ohio beers from the Raven’s Roost menu.

Please join us November 21st and 22nd for a weekend of great craft brews! Tickets are $75 per person and include dinner Friday and Saturday nights, and samplings of at least a dozen beers throughout the weekend. Click the “Reservation” button at the top of this page or call (740) 596-2606 to book your room now!

Please note that the event starts with dinner on Friday. Late arrivals will be accommodated as best as possible, but to enjoy the full experience please attempt to arrive early Friday evening.
