The Akron Aeros, the AA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, will toss a beer festival from 4 to 7 p.m. Oct. 1 at Canal Park in downtown Akron. The inaugural Canal Park Beer Fest will include more than 100 different beers. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 the day of the event. The ticket price includes 20 samples. There also will be food from local restaurants, a live band and a mechanical bull. (Hmm, drinking and mechanical bull rides. Do those go together?) More details about the beer itself are expected to be released soon.
