Missing Falls Brewery has received its state brewing permit and is shooting to open in October.

The Akron brewpub, 540 S. Main St., is located in the giant, red brick Canal Place complex downtown — and in the same building that will house the future R. Shea Brewing Co. production brewery and restaurant.

“So excited. I can’t even tell you,” Missing Falls co-founder Will Myers said Tuesday morning. (Sept. 4) “This is three years in the making.”

The brewpub, which will employ a seven-barrel brewing system, hasn’t set a specific opening date just yet.

The brewery plans to offer eight to 10 beers on draft initially when it does open.
