We are in full craft beer celebration mode, folks!
Here are some upcoming events that will keep you in touch with your favorite brewers and beers.
Crafted Drafts will be hosting a tasting of Actual Brewing Company on July 15 starting at 6:30 p.m. Located at 5245 North Hamilton Road, Crafted Drafts is one of the go-to spots for craft beer drinkers who are looking for that hard-to-find brew, and even for some of the old reliables. Next Tuesday will be the perfect opportunity for microbrew drinkers to try out some of Actual's newest creations, including Conductor Imperial Rye IPA, Elektron Amber Ale, Curious Berlinner Weisse and Ingenuity Lemongrass Saison (one of my personal favs!). For only $5 you can experience some of the best beers in Columbus, but just be sure to be get there early, as the event ends at 7:30.
Zauber Brewing Co. will be hosting the Dog Days of Summer on Saturday, July 19 from 3-9 p.m. If you arrive at 909 West Fifth Avenue, expect to be welcomed by excellent beer, furry friends, a nice variety of food trucks and kick-ass music from the Lovetown Mavericks. Although the complete list of beers is not yet available, Zauber and Actual Brewing Company are definite so far. Soak up some of that beer with food from Herb'n Food Truck, Explorers Club, ILLY'S PIZZA and Schmidt's Sausage Truck (because what goes better with a summer craft beer event than a Bahama Mama???). Worried about bringing your pup? Don't sweat it because our beloved four-pawed pals will have water dishes and toys to keep themselves occupied. And if your child is a real baby instead of a fur baby, Zauber has some great things planned to keep them happy as well, including a bouncy house (if only they had one for adults!), face painting and many more fun activities. Dog Days of Summer hits the nail on the head for offering something for everyone!
While these are just two of the upcoming events, they're definitely two must-attends. Don't forget to pick up your tickets for Grandview Craft Beer Alliance's second event, Summer Session which will take place on Saturday, August 23.
