Featuring Rare & Limited Release Craft Beers

Big Beers 2018 Canceled

Hi Big Beers fans and friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I/we share with you that Big Beers has been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances. Big Beers has been near and dear to many of us through the years, but this year, in the best interest of the integrity of the fest, we have made the tough decision to forgo the festival in 2018.

For your support and love of superior craft beer, we thank you! For your support of Resident Home Association these past nine years through your sponsorships and volunteerism, we send out deepest appreciation and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Cheers my friends!

Pam Skelly & the Big Beers Committee

How This Helps:

Big Beers & Barley Wines Beer Fest is a fundraising event of Resident Home Association (RHA). All proceeds support individuals with developmental disabilities served by RHA. Established in 1966, RHA, an Ohio non-profit provides homes, daily living support and services to individuals with developmental disabilities. Tax I.D. #31-0727897


Big Beers is a premium boutique beer festival featuring rare, limited release, vintage and one off craft beers. Many have historically been beers over 7%. For 9 years RHA has teamed up with Mike Schwartz of Belmont Party Supply and Ollie’s Place and his highly knowledgeable staff to cherry pick the rarest and most highly rated beers.

Big Beers is also a Who’s Who of the Dayton craft beer scene where volunteers from the area’s craft beer-friendly establishments work tables, serve beer, and mingle with the crowd along with brewers and representatives from highly acclaimed breweries. Guests can order food from one of several restaurants at the event, and listen to a live band while sampling their beers. Also offered are door prizes and a variety of raffles to take home souvenirs from the event and support Resident Home Association. Join us to sample over 50 hard to find craft beers at one event, one night, November 10th. Cheers!
