Lock 15 Brewing Company

Lock 15 Brewing Company Lock 15 Brewing Company opened in August of 2018 in the Cascade Lofts Apartment building on the corner of North and Howard Streets in Akron.
(256)

Lock 15 Brewing Co. features a seven barrel brew house completely visible through a glass wall in the main dining room and bar. A variety of year round brews, seasonal and experimental beers, and guest taps offer a well-rounded selection for all palates to explore and enjoy. Alongside the brew house is an open expo style kitchen that keeps onlookers entertained, as food is prepared in full view of the dining room. Simple, rustic, fresh, and local are common descriptors of the fare the menu offers. Emphasis on flavor, the menu explores familiar dishes with a delicious fresh twist.

Do you know Akron’s history? Many of our beer names come from stories passed down in Akron or from our surrounding area. We are located right next to the Ohio/Erie Canal and one of the oldest standing structures in Akron today. Howard Street specifically has a rich history, the street used to be filled with 72 bars and restaurants. Hard to believe right?

When the canal was built and started to become of great use to people, little stores sprung up like The Mustill Store at Lock 15. People had a lot of downtime and while they waited for the boat they listened to live music.

This prompted many bars and restaurants along Howard St. to pop up and feature live music on any given night. Akron became a tour stop for big-name jazz musicians because of its location between New York and Chicago. They would stay in the Matthews Hotel on Howard Street and sit in on gigs at night. Making jazz music an important part of Akron’s history.

The Black is Beautiful organization is a collaborative effort amongst the brewing community and its customers, in an attempt to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily. Their mission is to bridge the gap that's been around for ages and provide a platform to show that the brewing community is an inclusive place for everyone of any color. Every brewer participating will be using the same brewing recipe provided by Weathered Souls Brewing. We couldn’t be happier to participate in this. Stay tuned for our release date. #BlackisBeautiful

Try the Dunkelweizen it's our representation of a German dark wheat beer. The lightly toasted wheat body has notes of carmel and stone fruits. The beer finishes on your palate with the familiar smooth yeasty flavors of banana and clove, similar to our Mutton Hill Hefe. #Lock15Beer

Thank you, Terrie, for a great review! We are so happy you had a great birthday celebration.

Thanks so much for an amazing time celebrating a Family Birthday. Very accommodating with 4 young kids! Food was superb these Chefs put a lot of effort into creating a different experience with every Recipe. Sumer is amazing!!!!!!I Highly recommend Hot Tots & Loaded Corn Fritters where very unique creations, Mussels the best I ever Had, Filet medallions, Pork Shank, & Shrimp/Grits where amazing. I’m The Guys also enjoyed the Flights of beer but really settled on Kraut Balls October Fest as the best. Our server Steve provided excellent service even with accommodating the young kids. Even letting them view the beer room. We where also excited to find out that Drug Mart is now selling Lock 15 Beer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️❤️❤️❤️

Is there any way to get your beer delivered to PGH? I’m sooooo thirsty during this stay-at-home order.
YOU PEOPLE ARE WONDERFUL! Oops. Was that too loud?
Yessir!
Swung by the local Acme to grab some ourselves some Instigator. #lock15brewingco #instigator #supportlocalbreweries
Trying to call for delivery and keep getting busy signal. Are you guys really that busy?? If so, GREAT! But 😭 for us. Just checking to make sure there isn't a phone line issue.
Happy one year anniversary Lock 15 Brewing!
This might be a place to check out!!!
Tried the beef medallions and stuffed pork chop from the new menu. Both were A+. And I have a very picky husband and he loves your food. Highly recommend to our friends.
Your website is not working correctly to make a reservation. We leave a message to make a reservation, and no one calls you back. You really need to make some revisions in both areas. I hope when we show up that you have a table for us.
