16th Annual Winter Warmer Festival and Inaugural Warmer's Eve: March 3-4, 2023
Winter Warmer Fest 2023 Beer List 

UPDATE: Winter Warmer Fest is officially sold out! Thank you Cleveland! Tickets for Warmer’s Eve are still available at beerfesttickets.com/winterwarmer23

The moment you’ve all been waiting for… Here’s the beer list for the 16th annual Winter Warmer Fest and the inaugural Warmer’s Eve, happening March 3-4, 2023 at Windows on the River in Cleveland.

Winter Warmer Fest has traditionally featured a wide selection of rare, strong and seasonal beers, but as you’ll see when making your way through the list, there’s something for everyone. You’ll have a great time at the event no matter whether you prefer those big barrel-aged brews or offerings on the lighter side.

This year, we’ve kicked things up a notch with the introduction of Warmer’s Eve, an elevated Winter Warmer experience held the night before the main event. Many of the festival’s most popular breweries designated two special beers each to this high end session, which will also feature a menu of hors d’oeuvres, cheeses and crudités to complement the outstanding beer selections.

Winter Warmer Fest sells out every year due to the amazing beers that Ohio craft breweries bring to the event. Only a few dozen tickets for Warmer’s Eve remain, so be sure to snag yours now at beerfesttickets.com/winterwarmer23. Once they’re sold out, they’re gone: no tickets will be available at the door.
