Pints and Pies features savory, sweet and pizza pies – and a lot of beer

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Pints and Pies craft beer and pizza festival is set for next month at Akron Civic Theatre.

The fest – which features sweet, savory and pizza pies and craft beer – is at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, at the downtown Akron theater.

About 100 beers from local and out-of-state breweries will be paired with all types of pies – pizza, savory and sweet.

As has been done in the past, organizers are presenting sips by style of beer rather than by brewery.
