The perfect pairing!

NEW! International Beer Fest joins the Fabulous Food Show this year.  Previously held in May of 2011 and 2012, International Beer Fest quickly grew to become the ‘biggest beer fest in the Midwest.’ The opportunity to combine two stellar events in Cleveland, Ohio into a unique destination culinary arts experience of unprecedented magnitude was too good to pass up.
Prevalent features from International Beer Fest including the Real Ale Bar, Brew U Stage and Meads & Ciders Pavilion have been incorporated into the event. Upwards of 100 prominent breweries will be positioned geographically throughout designated International Pavilions. International Beer Fest, integrated into the Grand Tasting Pavilion, now sits adjacent to wildly popular features including the Spirits Lounge & Chocolate Bar. Upwards of 500 of wines, craft beers and spirits will be on display for sipping and savoring throughout all scheduled event hours. Guests must be 21 or older to participate. Grand Tasting Passports are available for purchase online or onsite.
NEW! International Beer Fest Grand Tasting Session has been added on Saturday evening, November 9. The Grand Tasting Session will be open from 7:30 – 11:00 PM exclusively to showcase the vast array of craft beers, wines and spirits already on display for sampling during regularly scheduled Fabulous Food Show event hours. 

A highlight of the night will undoubtedly be the
