Annual Pi Day Pie-Eating Contest at Fibonacci Brewing

Fibonacci Brewing is looking for its new pie-eating champion at their annual contest Tuesday, March 14, held in honor of the math holiday Pi Day.

Pi Day is held every March 14 because its numerical date, 3/14, are the same first three digits of the value pi, 3.14, which is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter of that circle. The holiday is a good excuse to geek out over math and, of course, eat pie.

As part of their 2023 Pi Day celebration, Fibonacci Brewing has also invited other craft-beer businesses along the Hamilton Avenue corridor to join in the fun. Urban Artifact, Humble Monk, Higher Gravity, Marty’s Hops and Vines and Brink are all participating. Podcaster and craft beer blogger the Gnarly Gnome will also be at the event, and Big Dogg’s Pizza food truck will be serving pizza “pies.”

The pie-eating contest will be held at 7 p.m. in Fibonacci Brewing’s beer garden. The contest will be held between brewery and bottle shop employees, but one spectator will also be chosen to participate.

“This event idea came to me in a dream,” Fibonacci president and co-owner Betty Bollas said in a press release. “When I talked to our local partners, they were more than excited to participate, and it was standing room only as spectators watched them compete for the annual trophy.”

All the cherry pies in the contest were purchased from North College Hill Bakery.

The brewery has been hosting their Pi Day pie-eating contest since 2018.
