LEAF Presents: Homebrewing With Paul Benner
Join the Lakewood Earth & Food (LEAF) Community for an educational session on beer making with Paul Benner of the Cleveland Brew Shop and Platform Beer Company. The presentation will take place on Thursday, October 23rd at 6 p.m. at the main branch of the Lakewood Public Library. This educational event will be held in conjunction with LEAF's annual Harvest Festival, which will run from 5:30-8 p.m. on the porch of the library and will feature local food, vendors, and music, as well as kids' activities and our annual pie contest.
Paul, a native Northeast Ohioan and graduate of Baldwin-Wallace University, Paul helms the Cleveland Brew Shop, Cleveland's only full-service homebrew supply shop open since 2012, and is part-owner of Platform Beer Company, a production brewery and tasting room that opened in 2014. Both businesses are located in nearby Ohio City.
Paul will discuss the parallel rise of the craft beer and homebrewing movements, along with how the beermaking process works on a small scale.
As always, this LEAF educational event is free and open to the public.
