CLEVELAND — It’s a big day for beer lovers today in Northeast Ohio because you can enjoy your favorite brews at two different special events.
The first celebrates Ohio Pint Day. You can purchase a limited edition collectible pint glass to support the Ohio Craft Brewer’s Association.
The OCBA chose local artist Adam Hernandez to design the inaugural Ohio Pint glass around the theme #InThisTogetherOhio.
He released the following statement about his design.
"In my work, I often reference mythology and borrow themes and imagery from ancient hieroglyphics. For this piece, I chose to depict Ohio’s state bird, the cardinal, as a phoenix. The phoenix is a powerful creature that represents transformation and rebirth. This year 2020 has brought to light many ugly issues that we need to address and change as a nation. I believe that these changes can start in our personal lives. My goal is that when the community sees the Cardinal Phoenix they will be challenged to look inward and see how they too can be transformed. It has multiple sets of eyes because I believe that when we are transformed into better versions of ourselves, we gain the ability to see what is happening in our world here and now, and also deeper, with foresight and power to move confidently into the future. My hope is that everyone who receives these glasses are empowered by its presence and encouraged to grow and better themselves and their community."
More than two dozen breweries throughout Northeast Ohio will be selling this special glass.
It’s also Cleveland Beer Week, which runs until Oct. 31. You can head to locations across Northeast Ohio to try different craft brews at a discount while raising money for a scholarship fund.
