With the U.S. craft beer industry on fire, a group of Barberton residents is seeking to set the Magic City aflame.

 

Ignite Brewing Co. — the name is a nod to the community’s history of making matches — hopes to open downtown this fall.

 

The seven-barrel production brewery and tasting room are the brainchild of three couples who are seeking to marry their passion for craft beer with their undying love for Barberton.

Beer notes: Summit Brew Path called ‘wildly successful’; Breckenridge visit; Kindred expands

 

The Summit Brew Path continues to be on fire.

 

The Akron/Summit Convention and Visitors Bureau, which launched the local brewery trail earlier this year, has handed out 10,000 passports already and just this week got another 10,000 delivered to keep up with demand.

 

“It’s obviously been wildly successful,” said Jim Mahon, vice president of marketing and brand management at the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

 

In a humorous twist, the organization debated whether to produce 2,500 or 5,000 initially because it was worried about having guidebooks left over. Go figure. It decided on 5,000, but immediately had to make another 5,000 because 4,000 were given away in the first two days.

Ohio Brewing Co. leaving Akron for Cuyahoga Falls; party is Saturday

Updated on October 23, 2017 at 1:15 PM

4-6 minutes

 

AKRON, Ohio - Chris Verich's wanderlust spirit has struck again: Ohio Brewing Co. is moving to Cuyahoga Falls to allow for increased distribution, and the brewery has planned a customer-appreciation party for Saturday, Oct. 28, to say thanks and farewell.

 

But craft-beer fans in the area shouldn't fret too much: The new tenant will maintain a strong emphasis on craft beer and will look at brewing down the line.

 

Ohio Brewing Co.'s final day in Highland Square is Sunday, Oct. 29. With the move, Ohio Brewing gains a larger space for brewery equipment, bar, pub and patio. It also will add to a growing craft-beer mecca on Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls that includes HiHo Brewing and MacArthur's Brew House as well as Craft Beer Bar.

A craft brewery is coming to the East End development in Akron.

 

Eighty-Three Brewery, a production brewery, tasting room and eatery, plans to open next year in the brick building that houses the Goodyear Theater along East Market Street in the city’s Middlebury neighborhood.

Incidentally, a friend of mine (maybe of yanni's, too, IRL) knows the Suraks personally and gives their beer very high praise (and she's someone whose opinions on the finer things in life I respect), so I'm excited to see what Eighty-Three has to offer.

Missing Falls Brewery aims for October opening in Akron

Published: September 4, 2018 - 8:56 AM

By Rick Armon

 

Missing Falls Brewery has received its state brewing permit and is shooting to open in October.

 

The Akron brewpub, 540 S. Main St., is located in the giant, red brick Canal Place complex downtown — and in the same building that will house the future R. Shea Brewing Co. production brewery and restaurant.

Wait, don't they already have a location open?  Or am I confusing them with Missing Mountain?

 

(To really keep up with the Summit & Cuyahoga County nomenclature, though, one would have to be Missing Heights and one would have to be Missing Falls ...)

Including the two future breweries in Canal Place, that's four breweries that will have opened in and around downtown Akron is a short amount of time.  Akronym Brewing and Lock 15 Brewing both recently opened.

Yup, waiting to see on R. Shea at Canal Place though.

If you like stouts and/or really strong beers, give Vlad by Royal Docks a try.

 

13.1% ABV makes it a go-to when Mad Elf isn't strong enough

Cuyahoga Falls is really becoming a beer mecca.  My favorite brewery in NEO is already Missing Mountain. 

 

Ohio Brewing Co. up and running in Cuyahoga Falls (photos, video)

Posted Aug 9, 2019

By Marc Bona, cleveland.com

 

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio - Chris Verich is a well-traveled guy. The owner of Ohio Brewing Co. has had many addresses for his brewery over the years, with the latest being Cuyahoga Falls.

"I was happy at Highland Square," he said about his most recent address in Akron, "but I got contacted by Cuyahoga Falls. They wanted us to be a linchpin for economic development."

 

He left Highland Square in late 2017, bought the Cuyahoga Falls location in January 2018, and then oversaw more than a year's worth of construction.

He worked with an historical architectural firm and received state historical tax credits for work in the 1917 building.
