Ohio Beer Week is under way.
The first Ohio Brew Week Microbrew Cooking Competition, to be held at 6 p.m. today at Toscano’s, will feature a variety of unusual foods prepared with microbrews. This event, and all other paid events, are being put on to benefit the Jon Sparhawk Memorial Scholarship Fund. Sparhawk, one of the originators of Ohio Brew Week, passed away unexpectedly June 2.
Twenty-three brewers from throughout the state will be in southeastern Ohio all week to show off their craft during the second annual festival, which continues through Saturday.
