Ohio Brew Week celebrates Ohio's diverse craft brews during the week-long festival. Over 175 craft beers from 28 Ohio Breweries will be on tap!
The 2013 Ohio Brew Week keynote speaker is Bill Metzger. Bill began to brew his own beer in 1988. This decision came after years of traveling to different countries and regions of the United States under the guise of sampling the native beers there. Billís love of travelóand beeróled him to realize that he needed to know more about the brewing process. His first successful beer was a Nut Brown Ale, made from a kit.
