    The History of Cle Written in Beer
    Nobody can tell the history of Cleveland beer better than Patrick Conway, co-founder of Ohio’s first craft brewery, Great Lakes Brewing Co!

    Patrick Conway Bio

    Patrick Conway’s long love affair with beer began during his tenure as a graduate student at the University of Chicago, when he got a job as a bartender to pay his bills. His palate became even further enlightened while traveling through Europe post-graduation, taking an intrepid tour of the continent’s small breweries and immersing himself in new styles. Inspired by the then fledgling movement towards craft beer in America, Patrick Conway returned to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio to pursue his dream of opening Ohio’s first craft brewery along with his brother Daniel. He continues to be an incomparable creative force in Great Lakes Brewing Company’s daily operations.
    The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
