Summer Session is Saturday

Join us August 23 from 3-7 for the second Grandview Craft Beer Alliance event, The Summer Session! We’re celebrating outside by low-ABV lounging with session beers at 5% and below from local breweries. Join us at the southeast corner of Grandview and Goodale for a lazy Saturday afternoon of drinking, food trucks, outdoor entertainment, music and more. Local homebrewers will have the opportunity to can their beers via Buckeye Canning at The Summer Session to help celebrate the local trend in canning–more details to come on the opportunities for canning.
