The Akron Craft Beer Festival returns to the Akron Civic Theatre at 8 p.m. Friday. (Oct. 13)

The event will showcase nearly 60 breweries and include a special pumpkin/yam beer called Spiced Oddity from Royal Docks Brewing Co. in Jackson Township. The brewery had made the beer last year in collaboration with Romanian brewery Ground Zero and brought it back this year for the Akron event.

"It’s been a huge hit for us," Royal Docks founder John Bikis said.

He noted that the beer won best of show at a Bucharest beer tasting.
