Looking to get a little more adventurous with your drink choices? The North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce can help with that. The Chamber will host its annual Brews After 5 event from 5 p.m.-9 p.m. Oct. 3 at Hoover Park, and it's put together a strong lineup of drinks. We're talking brews ranging from very light (the Belgian Affligem Blond) to the darker stuff (the Waterloo Dark). There's even some limited edition brews, like the Newcastle Werewolf Ale, and some that are just hitting the shelves, like the Leinkugel Lemon Berry Shandy. "There's really something for everyone," said Christina Weyrick-Cooper, organizer for the Brews After 5 event. "And the great thing is you can try them all in 4-ounce tastes and then buy full bottles of …

16th Annual Main Street Festival will feature plenty of enticing food, rides, entertainment and more!
What started nearly two decades ago as a small Octoberfest event has morphed into a huge community celebration that brings generations together for “the last hurrah of summer.” The 16th Annual Main Street Festival, organized by the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce, is sure to draw more than 10,000 area residents to downtown North Canton during its two-day run on Aug. 18-19, according to Doug Lane, chamber president. Lane said it’s impossible to credit just one aspect of the festival as the main draw for attendees, which have numbered as high as 15,000 some years. “There’s a huge variety of food because we try to limit duplicates – everything from very healthy foods to foods that aren’t so healthy but are very good to eat. There are (…

Have you ever heard of Dolson? They're an up-and-coming piano rock band, often compared to Ben Folds, The Fray and Coldplay. North Canton Patch got the scoop on what makes Dolson stand out.
North Canton Patch had the opportunity to talk with Andy Dolson, lead singer in the piano rock band Dolson. Dolson will play at the North Canton Chamber's event, Brews After Five, Oct. 5 at Hoover Park. The band will take the stage at 6:30 p.m. We also thought it was pretty cool that Andy took the time to respond. Andy and his band have been recording the whole month in Atlanta and have been going nonstop. North Canton Patch: How did your passion for music start? Andy Dolson: Didn't we all start because we thought we were going to meet girls? North Canton Patch: Where do you get your inspiration from? Dolson: Every once in awhile, I'll get a streak where melody and lyrics seem to come from nowhere, but more often than not, the best ideas…

Beer tasting, live music, great food and the opportunity to meet new people and mingle with old friends — yep, this will all be at Brews After Five. North Canton Patch got the inside scoop for you
They say application is the best way to learn, so what better way to become a beer expert than by sampling some imported and craft beer as you learn about each one? No, this isn't an elective college course — it's a networking event with an Oktoberfest twist, presented by the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce, with the support and cooperation of Walsh University. The only prerequisite for this event is you must be 21 years old. This is the second year for Brews After Five and, as always, the goal is to make it better than the first. Last year tickets were $25, which included several beer samples and an endless buffet. "This year we decided to make the entry fee more affordable, so if someone simply wants to stop in and taste a few …
