The Akron Civic Theatre is combining the art of craft beer brewing with local artisan pie-making to present Pints & Pies. A spin-off of the very successful Akron Craft Beer Festival, Pints & Pies takes the love of good craft brews to a new level. Patrons will enjoy handcrafted beers from some of the best craft breweries in Ohio and across the nation and pair them with samples of locally made, artisan-style pies — pizza pies, savory pies and sweet pies.

Pies & Pints will offer tastings of close to 100 beers, presented in stations throughout the venue and organized by style: Fruit Beers and Ambers; Lagers and Pilsners; Wheats, Wits and Hefeweizens; IPAs (including New England style and Brut); Ciders and Meads; Sours; Belgian Ales; and Browns, Porters and Stouts. All styles will be paired with the best “pies” in town, prepared by local chefs and bakers.

Attendees will receive a commemorative glass. Tickets are $40 per person. A Designated Driver ticket is $30 and ONLY available at the box office the night of the event. All attendees must be 21 years and older.
