Akronym Brewing

We can’t believe it’s already been a year since our grand opening! We just wanted to take a second to thank everyone who has supported us in some way over the last year. Cheers to our friends and family, to the downtown Akron community, to our fellow members of the craft beer community, to everyone we have partnered with for events over the last year, and to our bartenders 🍻 We hope you come out to drink with us today from 12-9. Don’t forget we have some special releases 😉

Getting ready for those weekend releases 😏

Just when you thought we were done.... THERE’S MORE! On Saturday (6/22) at 1 pm we will be tapping Cuyahoga Connection, a collab with our friends over at Masthead Brewing Co. This New England IPA was brewed with Lotus, Mosaic, and Citra hops, resulting in a tropical fruit flavor that is perfect for summer🏝 Following at 5 pm is Wood Aged Walk the Line. We took our American Stout and aged it in America white oak for 6 months - adding smooth vanilla and milk chocolate flavors. Make sure to stop in this weekend to try a new beer (or 5) and celebrate with us 🍻 🎉
