Special Event: Brewing Beer at the Summit
Join the Summit County Historical Society July 24th at 12:00pm to learn more about this fascinating piece of local history. We will visit the Thirsty Dog Brewing Company (located in the historic Burkhardt Brewery) on Grant St to brew up a little history.
Learn all about the early brewing process, Akron’s historic breweries, industry characters such as Wilhelm and Margaretha Burkhardt, and how beer is made today.
The event includes a tour of the brewery, boxed lunch from the Diamond Deli, tastings, and a brew school. Cost is $23 per person. Reservation and payment required in advance by July 19th. Space is limited! Call 330-535-1120 to reserve your spot.
In the meantime, please visit the temporary exhibit “Brewing Beer at the Summit” at Main Place in downtown Akron. The exhibit covers the brewing process, the historic breweries in Akron, and today’s Akron breweries. Artifacts on display are from the Historical Society’s collection and from the personal collection of Thirsty Dog owner John Najeway. Special assistance for the exhibit was provided by the Special Collections Division of the Akron-Summit County Public Library and Abruzzo’s Homebrew and Supply.
