Beer Today, Here Tomorrow 

The brew flows again in a newly retooled Rubber City oasis.

An Akron hot spot is bubbling up again. Really. After a brief hiatus, the Ohio Brewing Company is reopening its 15,000-square-foot pub today to showcase its new 90-foot bar and hand-painted landscapes of some of Ohio's most picturesque landmarks. Then there's the beer by brewing-operations director Chris Verich and ex-Great Lakes Brewing Company brewmaster Dennis Holland. Between the two of them, their battle-tested recipes range from the ruby-colored Cardinal Ale and German-style Kölsch brew to the stout-inspired Steel Valley and their Buckeye State tribute, the Ohioppy Ale. Hoist one back from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily at the Ohio Brewing Company, 222 South Main Street in Akron. Admission is free. Call 330-376-3008.
Starts: May 9. Daily, 11-2 a.m., 2008
