As summer fades into fall come appreciate the drinks of the season with an annual event that combines good times with a great cause.
The Milan Historical Museum will be hosting their 4th annual Milan Brew-haha from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, September 15 at the museum, 10 N. Edison Drive in Milan.
The event celebrates local breweries by giving residents an opportunity to try some of the best beers Ohio has to offer.
“The event originally celebrating the Milan Brewing Company that closed in the 1950’s,” said Ann Basilone-Jones, executive director of the Milan Historical Museum. “Today it is a celebration of our history and the local breweries in the region.”
This year local companies like Fat Heads Brewery, Put-in-Bay Brewing Company and Great Lakes Brewery will be selling samples of their delicious Oktoberfest ales.
“Each year this event has grown in size and today it is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” Basilone-Jones said. “We usually get between 300 and 400 people in the short time period this event takes place and this year we anticipate the same success.”
With live entertainment and appetizers by the Angry Bull Steak House, this event should get everyone ready for fall.
Admission to the event is free for museum members and $10 for non-museum members. With admission guests receive a 5oz pilsner glass to keep and 4 tasting tokens.
If guests purchase limited edition reproduction glasses of the Milan Brewing Company they will receive unlimited drink refills. The reproduction glasses range from $20 to $35 and come with a t-shirt.
“We spend the vast amount of our time and resources providing free programming to the community and events like this make other activities possible,” Basilone-Jones said. “So come and enjoy some good beers, while also supporting a great organization.
