Can't decide which.
No trying to be negative. Nothing against Maumee Bay Brewing Co.
I spend the summer on the river and the lake. The idea of a festival to celebrate this amazing feature of the area is great. Long overdue, really. We should have "Maumee River Days" and have bands on the promenade stage and boats, boat rides, environmental displays, the Coast Guard, fishing expo, in-water boat show. Invite the yacht clubs, have a fish fry. Bring the Jet Express over with people FROM Port Clinton. (Actually, I think that they can dock at the yacht basin near the back of One Seagate. Combine with the in-water wooden boat show held in August. Have the Navy back.
But is this a Maumee River fest or a Maumee Bay Brewing fest? The only "Maumee Bay" involved is the bar. The location is not exactly on the river, by a boater's standards. Why not promenade park? Why not during the boating season?
Why not a better logo?
If this is really about Maumee Bay BREWING company, I can support that too. But let's call it that, and do this river thing right. The bar can still have bands in the lot next to it during the Maumee Bay BREWING festival. For that festival, it can be all about beer.
