Fairfield - SweetWater Brewing Co.
“SweetWater’s roots began back in Boulder, Colorado in the early 90’s while Freddy Bensch and Kevin McNerney were roommates at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
During their time out west, they realized they had more of a hankering for beer than books. Their first step into the profession was washing kegs on the loading docks of a local brewery for free beer. Not a bad job when you’re in college! With all this free beer, their grades went up, their cars got fixed, friends were plentiful and the sun shined a little brighter. Once they were finished with school, it was time to either find a real job, or get serious in the brewing business. Easy choice, right? Freddy and Kevin headed off to the American Brewers Guild in California aka Brewing School to sharpen up their knowledge of “Fermentation Science”! After that they were off and running brewing beer for other breweries around the west coast, learning their craft while keeping the dream of their own place alive.”

Eastgate - Fat Head’s Brewery
About Fat Head’s
“Every great journey has a beginning. Ours began in the historic South Side of Pittsburgh, PA. Fat Head's Saloon was founded in 1992 and established itself as an early pioneer in bringing the craft beer industry to the area. The original Fat Head's earned an amazing following and has continually maintained a reputation as a premiere craft beer tap house and restaurant.
In 2009 Fat Head's teamed up with award winning brewer Matt Cole to create Fat Head's Brewery & Saloon in North Olmsted, Ohio and it crashed the scene like a two-headed monster. Success was virtually instantaneous (it came quickly). Producing over 5000 barrels in its first 3 years of business, Fat Head's beers gained notoriety by winning some of the most acclaimed awards in the brewing industry.
Fueled by high demand and the explosion in popularity of Fat Head's beers, we expanded to a full-scale production brewery in 2012. Fat Head's Brewery is located in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. We are dedicated to staying true to our core values of hard work and pride in craftsmanship that resonate throughout the region. We hope you enjoy the ride.”
Fat Head’s beer that you will be able to try on Friday include: Bumbleberry Wheat Ale, Head Hunter IPA, General Sherman Rye Pale Ale, and Hop Marauder Imperial IPA.
