“420 HopFest” at Buckeye Beer Engine this Weekend (4/15) … We’ll Be There!

My weekend just went from possibly painting the dining room … to stumbling home from the Buckeye Beer Engine.   Within 44! Kegs of IPA’s on draft … our journalistic integrity would be in question if we did not attend the “420 HopFest” at Buckeye Beer Engine.    Since CORKandKEGS headquarters is within walking distance … I think we will find our way over there.

This is the 5th year for the 420 HopFest event.  Not only will you be crushing some of your favorite Hop centered beers, but the events also include food pairing and breakfast with beers.   Come on people Breakfast + Beer ………………………. its college all over again but without drinking The Beast.

If you have never been to the Buckeye Beer Engine you are missing out.  The outside might look like an old fast food joint … but on the inside you get treated to a serious beer environment.   The food is outstanding, I have never had a bad burger in the place.  The have 20+ [Menu] burgers and probably 3X that number on their beer menu.   It seems like at any given time there are 15+ beers on tap w/ all the popular microbrews.   The walls are covered with old tap handles.  Those tap handles are a grave yard of past beers that flowed through the place, and everyone once in a while they get brought back to life and put on the board.

So, get you ass out of the house this weekend and come on down to Lakewood OH for the Buckeye Beer Engine “420 HopFest”.
