Food & Beer

What do you get when you take some of Northeast Ohio's top food options and compliment them with Great Lakes Brewing Company beers? That's right. A delicious experience that you can only get at the Burning River Fest. This year, #BRF16 will host five GLBC beers and several food options from around the area.
FOOD VENDORS
Commodore Perry® IPA
What’s this? A British-style IPA named after the man who defeated His Majesty’s Royal Navy in the War of 1812? Consider this a bold, hoppy (and mildly ironic) plunder of war.
Flavor:
Dry and well-hopped, with an arsenal of caramel malt flavors befitting the “Hero of Lake Erie.”
ABV:
7.7%
IBU:
70
Pairs with:
Spicy foods, carrot cake, and glorious sideburns
Burning River® Pale Ale
A toast to the Cuyahoga River Fire! For sparking both a new era of environmentalism and this brazenly hoppy Pale Ale. Sometimes, one wrong makes two very right rights.
Flavor:
Crisp and bright, with refreshing flickers of citrus and pine that ignite the senses (not our local waterways).
ABV:
6.0%
IBU:
45
Pairs with:
Smoky red meats, aromatic cheeses, and a reusable glass
Oktoberfest
Prost! Our take on this classic German style is a celebration of maltiness— packed with rustic, autumnal flavors to put a little more oomph into your oom-pah-pah.
Flavor:
Über smooth with vibrant malt flavors and a festive flourish of noble hops (lederhosen not included).
ABV:
6.5%
IBU:
20
Pairs with:
Roast pork loin, potato pancakes, and wiener dog races
