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, #BRF18 will host five GLBC beers and several food options from around the area.
