Art and Ale, the Akron Art Museum’s acclaimed beer tasting event returns March 13 from 6 to 9 p.m.
The 8th edition of the annual festival of beer and brewmakers features a range of beers from 19 highly rated breweries, including four of five Ohio breweries rated among the top 100 brewers of 2015 by RateBeer.com. Top-rated brewers, Hoppin’ Frog Brewery, Fat Head’s Brewery and Salon, Thirsty Dog Brewing Company, and Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery will be joined by an additional array of expert craft brewmasters and food purveyors. See the complete list on the Akron Art Museum website.
Ohio beers will be judged by an expert panel consisting of Rick Armon from the Akron Beacon Journal, Marc Bona from Cleveland.com and Jon Albrecht from ACME Fresh Market. At the event, guests can enter to win great brewmaking prizes and memorabilia from the brewers.
The museum galleries will be open for the first hour of Art and Ale, so guests will have the perfect opportunity to view “Beauty Reigns: A Baroque Sensibility in Recent Painting,” as well as “Living With Art,” “Altered Landscapes,” and “Christopher Pekoc: Hand Made.”
Advance tickets are $35 for members, $50 for nonmembers. Tickets purchased the day of the event are $50. Visit www.AkronArtMuseum.org for additional details. Art and Ale is open to ages 21 and older.
