While sipping on their favorite brews at Port City Brewing Company audience members will discover the connections between the art of brewing and the art of playing the music of Bach. Just as many brewers follow a recipe that was used hundreds of years ago, Steuart's approach to playing Bach also looks back on old “recipes” and methods of playing. The program of Bach’s Cello Suites will be interlaced with short explanations of Steuart’s historical, interpretive approach along with comments on the historical brewing method of each beer. Each Suite will be paired with one of Port City Brewing’s own brews.

Port City Brewing was named 2015 Small Brewery of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival. Steuart's concert of Bach & Beer was named one of the “Top Ten classical music events of 2014” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
