Crossing the Border Brew Tour

Meet: Starbucks, 9712 Singletary Dr, Streetsboro (front of Walmart/Rte 14) -- 10:15 am

Meal: Brewtus Brewing Company, 23 South Chestnut Street, Sharon, PA -- 1 p.m.
With October rapidly approaching, it's time to plan the annual brewery drive. This year we’ll cross the “border” for brews and “plunder!” Starting at the Starbucks in front of the Walmart in Streetsboro just off Route 14.
Our route will traverse the rural regions of Portage and Trumbull counties, exploring historic small towns and countryside before we cross the "border" into Downtown Sharon, Pennsylvania. Our target? The upstairs space at the Brewtus Brewing Company where we can order from the menu with separate checks.
You can continue the "foray" in the “outlands" by exploring shops in Downtown Sharon or roving approximately 20 minutes to Grove City Premium Outlets stores. Check out additional October activities such as the Pumpkin Festival at the nearby shops of Volant with the online Mercer County Visitors’ Guide before your visit.
25th Anniversary Summer Social Wrap-Up
Sunday, August 7, 2016, marked the Chapter's twenty-fifth anniversary social in the Waterside Room of the Emerald Necklace Marina in Cleveland Metroparks’ Rocky River Reservation.
Old and newer members enjoyed a picnic buffet and the background music of Found Sounds’ steel drums. Door prize donations as well as some Chapter logo materials sent most members home with a memento of the day. Many lingered on the terrace outside the room or took a walk along the marina and the Rocky River before heading homeward, ready to start our next twenty-five years.
Particular thanks goes to the following for prize donations:
- BMW of Westlake for a custom detailing certification
- BMW Cleveland for a weekend with a 228xi convertible
- Dave Walter BMW for a weekend with an i8
2016 Gervasi Cruise-In Event Wrap Up
On Wednesday July 27, 2016 the Northern Ohio Chapter BMWCCA was the featured marque at the Gervasi Vineyard Cruise-In car show. The event, now in its second year, was held in conjunction with Cain BMW. Over 50 BMWCCA members cars were on display along and near the brick pathway leading to the main pavilion. The wide variety of BMWs in attendance ranged from a 1971 2800 CS to a new BMW M3. Cain BMW’s display in the main pavilion included a beautiful M6 Gran Sport finished in Black Sapphire Metallic. During the evening’s festivities a silent auction benefiting the Make-A-Wish foundation was held which raised close to $200.00 for this very worthy organization. Special thanks goes to Cain BMW for donating a great selection of BMW-branded items for this auction.
Cain BMW also hosted a member appreciation at the Ballaria in the Villa Grande (located on the grounds of Gervasi Vineyard). This member-only event included a delicious selection of appetizers and provided all in attendance the chance to cool off while enjoying some great conversations! Thanks again to Cain BMW for partnering with our Chapter on this event.
