Like History? Love Beer? Join the WRHS Young Professionals’ Historic Pub Crawl

Cleveland, OH— If beer and history are two of your favorite things, consider joining the Western Reserve Historical Society’s Young Professionals at their annual Historic Pub Crawl on June 28 beginning at 2:00 pm. This year, the pub crawl will take guests through the historic west-side neighborhood of Tremont.

With tickets available for just $10, participants will receive a wrist band and drink specials at four unique Tremont watering holes: The South Side, Hotz Café, Lincoln Park Pub, and Edison’s. Each of these locations holds historic value to the area, which has experienced significant growth and change since its development in the late 1800s.

Dr. John Grabowski, Senior Vice President for Research and Publications at WRHS, will be on-hand to tell the historic stories of Tremont during the Pub Crawl. Each location has its own interesting quirks, architectural background, and historic significance.

“All of Cleveland’s neighborhoods have strong historic and cultural backgrounds,” says Grabowski. “Tremont is fascinating in the fact that it has undergone so much change over the last 100 years and has grown to be one of the cultural and culinary hubs of the city while keeping intact much of its historic architecture.

The Young Professionals are an auxiliary group of the Western Reserve Historical Society. The group connects the past to the present through a variety of engaging programs and social events. Members of the group enjoy members-only events of WRHS, free admission at both Hale Farm & Village and the History Center, and more. To join the WRHS Young Professionals, email yp@wrhs.org.
