Friday, March 11, from 6-9 pm at the Akron Art Museum, you can peruse fine works of art while sipping handcrafted beers from local breweries and food tastings from regional producers.
The museum is currently featuring an exhibit of works by Escher. Breweries participating include Elevator, Hoppin’ Frog, Indigo Imp, Main Street, Ohio Brewing, and Thirsty Dog.
There will also be home brewing demonstrations and you can talk with the experts on your own brewing troubles and successes. Beacon Journal Reporter Rick Armon will be on hand to discuss the state of brewing in Ohio. (He has a soon-to-be published book on Ohio breweries.)
You can also help pick the “Best of the Art” from the beers presented during the evening and enter to win prizes including a beer making evening at The BREW Kettle Taproom and Smokehouse in Strongsville for you and five of your friends or a home brewing kit to get you started making your very own beers.
Update: Congratulations Hoppin’ Frog for winning the best of show with the Frog Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale!
