Thirsty Dog is the only real taproom in Northeast Ohio. Thirsty Dog offers about 30 beers that rotate by season. They are currently in a phase of trying to barrel ages many of their beers, so there are wine and bourbon barrels in most of the extra spaces in the brewery.

The taproom has a fairly long bar and about 12 beers on tap plus a few on cask. In July they bring out their version of Christmas Ale. In general, I would say this version is decent, much better on tap than in bottle. They also have a bourbon barrel version which is a good combination. Thirsty Dog also has an imperial stout and dry irish stout that are quite good. Otherwise, most of their beers are lighter in orientation.

The brewery is built in a very old Akron brewery dating back to the 1800s called Burkhardt. It has a more traditional top down brewing process as a result of the age of the building.

I have had a few of their beers. I think all have been forgetful. Not bad, just nothing to recommend to anyone. The christmas ale, I believe is called 12 dogs of christmas, just tatsed like coca-cola. Their scottish ale was very bland as well as the dortmunder style they have. Hoppus Maximus was okay. As said before nothing is really special about any of the beers that I have tried from this brewery. They doe have a decent selection of different styles, but I am giving them a lower score based on the quality of each style.
