R.Shea Brewing - Merriman Valley

R.Shea Brewing - Merriman Valley Akron's newest microbrewery in The Valley on Merriman Rd. Specializing in handcrafted Ales and Lagers.

Ever since homebrewing, I have liked the atmosphere of friends over while brewing a batch of beer. I also love the atmosphere of Thirsty Dog and the old Ohio Brewing - you can actually see the beer being made in the giant containers right before your eyes. I am not really a 'bar guy' so I set out to create something different, something unique unlike the common bar. A place where you can interact with the brewers while having a fresh pint at the bar - to really know the people behind the beer.

COLLAB CAN RELEASE!
Tomorrow (Monday) at Royal Docks Brewing Co. we will be releasing our collaboration brew, CAKtus, a Double New England IPA. This beer was inspired by a meeting of our brewers at Royal Docks a month ago. We wanted to brew something together for the North Canton Beer Fest sponsored by the Akron-Canton Airport (CAK). CAK kinda sounds like Cactus so we came up with a DNEIPA using predominately Calypso hops and Blue Agave Nectar (the Cactus tie-in). Unlike most collabs, we each brewed this at our respective locations and the 'other half' of the hops depended on what we both had in inventory. Royal Docks will be releasing 6-packs of their version of the collab beginning Monday, May 20th at 4pm. They will also have our version on tap. I will be down around 5-8pm for this release so I hope to see you!
*We will have our version on tap at The Valley location this Wednesday.

COLLABORATION DAY with R.Shea and Royal Docks Brewing Co. for the North Canton Craft Beer Fest on 5/18/19.

The ROSE GRENADE
It's our new beer that will be released tomorrow (or today) at the Rubber City Beer Fest at Lock 3 Saturday from 2-6pm. Greg Irving, a member of the Akron homebrew club SAAZ, and I collaborated on something truly unique. We pulled from R.Shea's strengths of using fruit and his strengths of Brut-style IPA's...what we created was something that more closely resembles Champagne...than beer. With over 200lbs of Pomegranates, this 'Rose' clocks in at 10%, finishes dry, is slightly tart and is quite deadly. Given a blind tasting you would think that this was a Champagne from France but only to find out that this is a beer from Akron (your mind explodes).
We hope to see you Saturday!
