Trailhead Brewery, a nanobrewery in Akron's Merriman Valley, opens Friday.
"It's amazing to finally be able to open my doors and I am very excited to, at long last, invite the public into my brewery," owner and brewer Larry Smart said.
Trailhead will have three beers on tap at first: "a session stout, a super hoppy pale ale and a Belgian golden," he said. A fourth beer will be on draft soon, he added.
The brewery will open at 5 p.m. Friday. Regular hours are 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and noon to 10 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sunday and Monday.
