The West Point Market, an upscale grocer in Akron that's celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, will hold its first-ever beer tasting from 7 to 9 p.m. Oct. 28. The event will feature beer from Elevating Brewing Co., Mount Carmel Brewing Co., The Brew Kettle, Lager Heads Brewing Co., Thirsty Dog Brewing Co., Indigo Imp Brewery, Fat Head's Brewery & Saloon, and Cellar Rats Brewery. For a list of the beers each brewery is bringing, click here. The beer tasting also features food, including homemade sausage marinara, warm German potato salad with bacon, bacon cheddar steak burger sliders, pretzels and cheeses. If that weren't enough, the beer tasting includes a halloween costume contest with prizes for first, second and third places. The cost is $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Also, I will be a special guest and be around to sign copies of my new book Ohio Breweries. Call 330-864-2151 to make a reservation.
