It's that time of year when Oktoberfest celebrations are happening all over the world.  We'll join the festivities with an evening of food, drinks, and fun at Cleveland's Hofbräuhaus!  Dating back more than 500 years, the Hofbräuhaus has been brewing beer and helping people celebrate in Cleveland since opening in 2014.  An evening at the Hofbräuhaus is a perfect way to kick off IHEA's Fall Business Conference!
