Seasonal Special Happenings

Akron Craft Beer Festival

When: Fri., Oct. 9 2015

Beer tastings are a dime a dozen, but the annual Akron Craft Beer Festival has plenty going for it. At today’s event, 38 craft brewers and two mead makers will offer more than 80 selections. The Civic has even created its own one-of-a-kind beer, the Loretta, a collaboration with Baltimore’s Heavy Seas brewery. Other highlights: The just-released Dogfish Head Punkin’ Ale will be infused with vanilla beans and cinnamon sticks; Stone Brewing Co. will feature its bittersweet and creamy Coffee Milk Stout; Prairie Artisan Ales will offer samples of Somewhere, a sour citrus ale, and its hoppy farmhouse saison, Standard; Baird Beer, a Japanese brewery whose owner is originally from Ohio, will have Wabi-Sabi Japan Pale Ale on hand, made with wasabi and green tea; and Mikkeller, a gypsy brewer from Denmark, will offer samples of Simcoe Single Hop IPA, Better Half India Pale Ale and Fit Wit, a witbier. The event takes place at 8 tonight at the Akron Civic Theatre. Tickets are $40. (Niesel)
