CLEVELAND - On June 4, 1974, 39 years ago, the Cleveland Indians held a 10-cent beer night at Municipal Stadium.
The fans got heavily intoxicated and a riot broke out. The game was forfeited in the ninth inning to the Rangers due to the crowd’s uncontrollable rowdiness.
Now That's Class bar near the Cleveland-Lakewood border celebrated the event Tuesday night with its own 10-cent beer night.
Four kegs were tapped and for a buck, customers could get 10 glasses. Patrons were drinking one after another. The staff had a good system to keep up.
"We're just having a party, having a good time with 10-cent beer, you know, the owners are rewarding all his patrons with basically free beer," said Nate, a local patron.
The party goes until the beer runs out, which is usually early in the night.
