The well-traveled Ohio Brewing Co. is on the move again.

The Akron brewery -- which has opened and closed several locations in Niles, Youngstown and Akron -- announced Friday (Oct. 20) via a news release that it will open a production brewery, bar and patio on Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls.

"It’s going to be a nice operation with a planned opening in the spring," co-owner Chris Verich said in a brief telephone conversation.

Ohio Brewing will continue to brew at its brewpub in Akron's Highland Square neighborhood for the immediate future and said its Jingle Bell Ale will be available at local grocery stores and other beer stores.

The current brewpub will be rebranded as the Barmacy Bar & Grill. Barmacy owner Walid Loutfi said he will relocate the Barmacy now operating in the city's Merriman Valley neighborhood to Highland Square.

He is excited to move into the new neighborhood and operate with a larger location. The Barmacy, which has been open for more than four years, will serve Lebanese food, along with burgers and pizza, and be open for lunch.

The Barmacy uses the slogan "We have your medicine with no prescription" and owes its name to Loutfi's family being in both the bar and medical fields. The bar will focus on providing a solid and expansive craft beer selection, he said.

The immediate future of brewing there is up in the air, though.

"Right now, it's going to be a bar-restaurant but I'm looking for someone to lease out or operate the brewery," Loutfi, 30, of Fairlawn said.

A sign posted outside the business this week says: "Coming Soon! Barmacy Bar & Grill." The Barmacy takes over the lease Nov. 1.

Ohio Brewing said in its release that it "will remain a vibrant part of the local brewing scene as we complete our transition. The Highland Square community has been a wonderful time for us. We have enjoyed the dedication and appreciation of our patrons, while reciprocating with the successes of our recent Ohio Brewing Oktoberfest, and hosting paid musical acts weekly during our stay."

Ohio Brewing will host a "Customer Appreciation Party" at 8 p.m. Oct. 28. The event will feature food, live music by The Senses and beer.

Other details about Ohio's new location at 2250 Front St. weren't immediately available. The address is between HiHO Brewing Co. and McArthur's Brew House, which are both on Front.

The move isn't a surprise. The brewery posted a classified advertisement on ProBrewer.com last month saying it’s “expanding our existing brewery to a new location and need to move quickly.”

The brewpub, which includes a seven-barrel brewhouse, bar and full kitchen, was asking $375,000 as a turnkey operation or it was willing to sell its brewing equipment separately.

At the time, Verich said Ohio wasn't actively looking to sell but had plans to relocate to Cuyahoga Falls.
