What started out as an uneventful and lazy Sunday of watching the Browns game, somehow quickly turned into a search for beer tastings on the east side in honor of Cleveland Beer Week.
By the looks of my friend Michelle, we were just going to stay in and watch the Browns. Please note the scarf she is using as a belt for that damn Snuggie.

In the 4th quarter, somehow Brewzilla came up which then made everyone start asking about beer week events. Courtesy of my sweet iPhone (comes in handy in lots of cases), we found a tasting at Whole Foods and jumped in the car to go.

Out of all the Thirsty Dog brews, my favorites were the Pumpkin Ale, and a tie between Raspberry Ale and Labrador Lager. I'm more of a pale ale kind of girl when it comes to my beer drinking. Plus, I like to sample beers in season and I can't get enough of the pumpkin ales right now.
Be sure to check out Cleveland Beer Week's events page for a listing of events all over, including Brewzilla which is the closing event and this Saturday at the Arcade, starting at 6 p.m. My friends and I all have a Halloween party but are seriously debating going to Brewzilla first and then to the party. Who doesn't love a beer event, anyway?
