"It's crazy to think that four years ago Dayton didn't have a single operating brewery," organizer Brian Johnson said. "Even more amazing is the quality of all of the breweries that have popped up since then. Whether you like hoppy, dark, experimental or a more traditional style, it's being brewed here and it's brewed well."

Each ticket for BEER! is good for a 13 six-ounce pours and serves as your vote in the coveted "Dayton's Best Brewery, People Choice Awards."

“It’s fun to see what people are up to,” Johnson said. “There are a number of brewpub favorites showcased, but there have also been a few surprises just for this event.”

The event is more than just the beer, as there will be live music, food trucks and an official after party at Yellow Cab.

Tickets can be purchased at all Dayton local breweries and through the Yellow Cab website. The event is for ages 21 and up.
