This year's Cleveland Beer Week begins with collaboration crawls in Lakewood, Ohio City, Tremont and along East Fourth Street on the evening of Friday, Oct. 10. This year, event organizers paired selected Cleveland area breweries with regional and national partners. Great Lakes teamed up with Colorado's Oskar Blues to craft Yadig, a tart, hoppy German wheat beer. Buckeye Brewing and Saugatuck of Douglas, Mich., partnered up for an English mild ale called OH-MI! while the Brew Kettle and Pennsylvania's Full Pint formulated and brewed Dead Canary Grisette (a near-extinct Belgian style closely related to the saison). Rounding out the pack of five collaborations are Brooklyn Dog from Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. and Brooklyn Brewery, and Fat Devil, a black India pale lager from Fat Head's and the lager masters at Virginia's Devils Backbone. The collaboration beers will make limited appearances around town, but the crawls are the only way to get the first fills of all five. See a full listing of Cleveland Beer Week events here.

For most artists, making the transition from clubs to arenas would be welcomed. But Nashville singer-guitarist Eric Church isn’t like most artists. When he embarked on the Blood, Sweat and Beers tour in 2012 and 2013, he found his popularity had suddenly soared and he was playing bigger venues. “We got jerked out of the smaller clubs and the next thing I knew, we were in an arena,” he says via phone from his home where he was on a 12-hour break after playing the annual iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. “It was a little bit of whiplash for me. I missed the vibe of a club or theater when everyone is on top of each of other and that spirit is moving.” Catch him in action tonight at 7 p.m. tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. Tickets: $25-$59.50 (Niesel).

Gravelly voiced singer Eddie Money was a bit of a late bloomer. He started performing in the late ’60s but didn’t sign a record deal until 1977. His self-titled debut became a huge hit and yielded singles like “Two Tickets to Paradise” and “Baby Hold On.” Money continued to deliver hits throughout the ’80s until struggles with addiction nearly derailed his career. More than 10 years ago, he joined a 12-step program, embraced sobriety and commenced regularly touring and recording again. In 2012, he released a single, “One More Soldier Coming Home,” that benefited the Fallen Heroes Fund. Expect to hear it alongside hits such as “Take Me Home Tonight” and “Shakin’” at tonight’s show. Money loves Northeast Ohio so expect the guy to give it his all. See him live tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tangier. Tickets: $35-$75. (Jeff Niesel)

After a heroic home victory against the New Orleans Saints, the Cleveland Browns came up short against the Ray Riceless Ravens of Baltimore before an early bye week. The Browns almost knocked off tonight’s opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers, when the two teams went at it in Pittsburgh. With homefield advantage and a healthy Ben Tate back in the running back position, the Browns should be equipped to take down their division rivals. The Dawg Pound’s home crowd will be on the Brownies’ side and expect the tailgating to be ferocious in the Muni lot. Kickoff today is at 1 p.m. at FirstEnergy Stadium. Tickets start at $25. (Allard)
