Youngstown Craft Beer Week 2019

The State Line Brewer’s Guild has organized the first ever Youngstown Craft Beer Week! YCBW is a week-long event that includes 14 local breweries in Ohio and Pennsylvania, all leading up to the Big Tap In 6 on Saturday! The goal of the Guild for this week is spend time with local establishments, regular customers, and all of the supportive patrons to celebrate local craft beer. It is also to say THANK YOU for the craft beer culture we have created in our area, not just in Youngstown, but the greater Youngstown area in NE OH and Western PA.

In order to make this week special, the Guild got together over the past few months to brew exclusive collaboration beers specifically for YCBW and BTI6. 5 collaboration beers were brewed at 5 Ohio locations, with 2-3 breweries involved in each.

Come hang out with us throughout the week and get to know the owners, brewers, employees, and families of all 14 breweries in the Guild!

*please note that some breweries have other smaller events going on throughout the week, please check with your local brewery for more info.*

Here is the breakdown for the week:

MONDAY- 4/22
Magic Tree Pub & Eatery in Boardman
Magic Tree on South Avenue will be hosting us Monday night for a Brewer’s Roast! The roast will be “mean tweets” style, meaning owners and brewers will be up on stage reading bad reviews on themselves and their beer with local meteorologist Andrew Dipaolo as the MC for the event! They will have a local tap takeover for the event including the collaboration beers.

Casual Pint in Boardman
Casual Pint in the Shops at Boardman Park will also be doing a local tap takeover, including collaboration beers! In addition, local food truck A Moveable Feast will be set up in the parking lot starting at 5pm & DJ Randy will be playing throwback music from the 70s-90s from 6-10pm.
