Festivus — the holiday made up by everyone's favorite Seinfeld father, sweet, sweet Frank Costanza — is getting its due here in Cleveland with a big celebration at Jukebox in Ohio City this Thursday.

While the holiday is technically supposed to be observed on Christmas Eve Eve, no one is probably going to mind that Festivus is coming a bit early as that means getting to try out Market Garden Brewery's three themed beers: Festivus Ale, Feats of Strength and Airing of Grievances.

The event kicks off at 7 p.m., but Seinfeld episodes, including the infamous Festivus one, start rolling at 7:30 p.m. Party goers can also compete in the annual Airing of Grievances contest, so start thinking of all things to complain about now (creativity is key).

No word yet on if the feats of strength portion of the holiday will be celebrated at this particular event. Find all the details for the event right here.
