Wayne County native Paul Fryman, a professional brewer who has worked in Colorado, New York and Wyoming, and his family are working on opening a brewery in downtown Wooster. The effort is still in its infancy, but they already have a site: 120 Beall Ave. Plans are for a production brewery at first and then a brewpub. "There are a lot of cool things they are doing in Wooster and it's a perfect spot for a brewpub," said Fryman, whose last brewing job was as brewmaster at Great Adirondack Brewing Co. in Lake Placid, N.Y. He left that gig for the opportunity to open his own operation. The goal is to open next year, possibly as early as January but more likely during the summer, he said. He's still in the process of buying equipment -- he's looking for a 15-barrel system. Also, the brewery doesn't have a name yet. "It's tough," Fryman said about picking out a name. "We don't want it to be gimmicky or anything like that. We want it to have a regional feel." He said he always wanted to open a brewery in Wooster. "It was hard to leave my job in New York but the time is now in the industry," he said. As far as beer itself, Fryman said he's a fan of "boring lagers." "I like session beers," he said. "I really appreciate a nice kolsch or something delicate that takes a little bit more brewing finesse to make."
