One of the benefits of being a member of the Akron-Kent Society of the AIA was a free tour and tasting at the Thirsty Dog Brewery on Grant Street in Akron which we enjoyed yesterday evening (Oct. 6). Our guide, Greg, us a detailed tour of the impressive facilities at the Brewery including state-of-the-art bottling machines that look like something out of a science fiction movie, a spring and well in one of the basements, storerooms full of barley, hops, and other ingredients, and lots of wooden casks (see above). I’ve been going to their tasting room for years and had no idea how large and complex the operation at the Thirsty Dog is. The group then settled into a pleasant evening of sampling their brews and a lively conversation on the healthful benefits of beer. Thanks to Jodi, John, Greg and our bartender Jared for a memorable evening!
