Now in its 5th year, The KCRW Pie Contest returns Saturday, September 7th at LACMA. This year we're bigger than ever - 263 bakers will be baking 347 pies for the competition. Registration is now closed, but come on out and cheer on the bakers September 7th from 2-4pm.

Orange County craft brewers, The Bruery, helped kick off this year’s pie festivities with a special Pie Beer naming competition. Over 200 entries were submitted in four days to name the sour beer inspired by a rhubarb raspberry pie with a graham cracker crust. Kleiman and The Bruery chose the winning name, Windowsill, which was submitted by food and beer bloggers, Hot Knives. The special brew will be available for limited release at the beginning of September through The Bruery’s Reserve Society and at KCRW’s Good Food Pie Contest.
Here are YOUR photos!#PieADay invites ANY & ALL Instagrammers to share YOUR own photos of your PIE!
