  • Where to find a beer at Cedar Point

    Empty Buckets

    Heading to Sunny Sandusky to hit some awesome roller coasters at Cedar Point this summer? Well, you might find yourself in a need of a drink while at the park. Having been there twice already this summer, I have done a little research to find out what is available and where. Here are the places inside Cedar Point that you will want to mark to get your refreshments. Most of the offerings are of the macro variety, but hopefully they catch on to the current trend of craft beer offerings at sporting venues and amusement parks. On a high note, you can find some Great Lakes Brewing Company beer(s) at the park. I only found one so far, but they told me they are working on getting more. I would really love to see some J.F. Walleye’s from Middle Bass make it’s way over. Their Mocha Porter that I tasted at the beer fest was very good, and with Mark Wise brewing for them, I bet there are more good things to come.

    When I inquired about Cedar Point’s beer offerings before they opened for the season, I was promptly replied to with some information and a reminder that Cedar Point is first and foremost a family park. I agree and understand this having grown up right across the bay from it. As always, enjoy these beers responsibly.

    A couple of other non-beer tips. Hot dog legend, Pink’s is new to the park this year and offers up some tasty dogs. I grabbed a Chicago-style sausage for around $5. That is not a bad deal as this was not your normal sized hot dog. But the best deal in the park is the Johnsonville Sausage walk-up stands throughout the park. $5.69 for a brat, bag of chips and a 12 oz. soda. That is a hell of a deal. They also have a similar deal for a hot dog instead of the brat for $4.69. You can’t forget about the famous fries with malt vinegar and my favorite, fried cheese on a stick.

    If you make it to Cedar Point, you have to try some of these food items, and then wash it down with a cold beer. Cheers!

      Here’s a little Cedar point secret. There is a Friday’s and a famous Dave’s at the Breakers hotel ( Fridays) and the Marina ( Dave’s). The Fridays had Thirsty Dog, and dead guy ale. However, all their beers on Saturday had a bad flavor. I am a Little weary that they do not clean their lines. Dave’s had killians and most domestic and Canadian rice beers. If Friday’s would get their lines in order it would be great.

      That Friday’s has a prime location. Dock your boat right next to the bar. And with recent news of more craft options at different TGI Friday’s locations, they better keep those lines clean.

      Never understood that blanket statement “its a family place”. Parents drink, kids play. That’s a family. I won’t go to Six Flags ever again in Valencia, CA because they’re a “family place” and don’t serve alcohol, anywhere. No beer.
