Thirsty Dog Taphouse in Akron will host a five-course beer dinner called "April Sours" — an obvious play on April showers — at 6 p.m. Wednesday. (April 17)

The dinner will begin with a "Magical Mystery Sour Cask" and then showcase Berlinerweisse paired with peaches and cream salad; Dry Hopped Sour paired with spicy tuna poke; Cerasus Dog with marinated pork tenderloin; Saison D'Chardonnay with lemon and herb halibut; and Burley Brown with Cherries with cherry cobbler.

Tickets are $35. Reservations are required and can be made at 234-571-1456.
