If you are a Clevelander who likes to laugh and who enjoys beer, here's your chance to do both at the same time. The city of Cincinnati is playing host to their 8th annual Brew Ha-Ha on Thursday, August 21, Friday, August 22 and Saturday, August 23 where visitors will be able to view some great comedy acts and sample a wide variety of beer.
Cincinnati Brew Ha-Ha Taking place at Cincinnati's downtown riverfront Sawyer Point Park, the Brew Ha-Ha will feature 50 comedians performing on 4 stages including comedy headliners Bobcat Goldthwait, The Sklar Brothers and David Alan Grier and more than 100 beers to sample (including ales, lagers, pilsners and stouts). Beer stands will be located throughout the Park and beers can be purchased by sample or by the glass.
Cleveland's own Great Lakes Brewing will be at Brew Ha-Ha offering several of their Great Lakes beers.
And there will be plenty of food available for purchase from participating food vendors including Krimmer's Italianette Pizzera, Wertheim's (German fare), Island Noodles Florida, Eli's Barbecue and Texas Joe's Food Truck, Hungry Food Truck and Urban Grill Food Truck.
Hours for the Brew Ha-Ha are 5 p.m. - midnight on Thursday and Friday and 4 p.m. - midnight on Saturday. Admission is free (including all comedy acts) but beer wristbands are $5 and it is $1 for each beer ticket. One ticket = one beer sample and 5 beer tickets = a full beer serving.
