This is a public event, known as "BrewMadness". The BrewMadness event will feature beers from Hoppin’ Frog, Thirsty Dog, Aqueduct and Royal Docks.

You may recognize the address as Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. Or Aqueduct Brewing. But the location is know as the Burkhardt Brewery Building. This is an appropriate location for this type of event.

The event is being put on by the Barley Grail Brewing Cooperative. It will be a day of festivities, and of course, beer and things related to beer. Taste homebrew, rate it, bid on auction items, etc. I (or our host, Michael Rossi from this organization), will be adding details and the Facebook page as we get closer. Here's what Michael has to say so far.

"...your members (Akron Area Beer Lovers), will be enjoying an array of different activities and conversations at our event. We will be holding it during the Final Four on April 2nd at 6pm till 1:30am.

There will be a home brewers brewing challenge where your members can get a chance of being a guest judge in the Brew Madness Competition (home brews looking to enter your brew, contact Michael Rossi), we will have auction items, local celebrities appearing (Not Lebron , don't want to get anyones hopes up lol), great food and live music.
