Akron Art Museum’s Seventh Annual Event

Tuesday Apr 1, 2014 3:29 am - 3:29 am


Three distinct beers brewed in Northeast Ohio emerged as winners during judging at Friday’s Art and Ale tasting at the Akron Art Museum.

The event, a benefit for the museum, attracted several hundred beer lovers who sipped a variety of creations from craft brewers, mostly from Northeast Ohio. More than a dozen breweries served ales, ciders and beers in the museum’s lobby.

Best in Show went to:

  • B.O.R.I.S. the Crusher from Akron’s Hoppin’ Frog Brewery. The ale is an oatmeal imperial stout at 9.4 percent alcohol. This smooth sipper garners national awards on a regular basis.
  • An Abbey Ale from Black Box Brewing Co. in Westlake. Full-bodied with a slight caramel flavor, this had the richness of a well-made Belgian ale.
  • Ma Barker’s Birch Beer from Main Street Grille and Brewing Co. in Garrettsville.
