Stow residents got all excited this week when it was reported by Patch.com and the Stow Sentry website that Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. in Akron was interested in opening a restaurant in their community. Alas, it's not true. Thirsty Dog used to operate several brewpubs in Ohio, but they have long since closed. Only the brewery itself survived. Thirsty Dog co-owner John Najeway said that a former business partner filed paperwork with the Ohio Secretary of State's Office to incorporate the business name: Thirsty Dog Grill. "That's not us," Najeway said. He added that "they've been asked to cease and desist" from using that name.
