There's been plenty of anticipation in Akron and Canton for the upcoming opening of the new Fat Head's brewpub in suburban Canton and the new Thirsty Dog Taphouse in Akron.

Well, both breweries have announced opening dates for the locations:

Fat Head's will open March 12. The brewpub originally had planned to open March 5 but cited "equipment problems" on social media for the delay.



Meanwhile, the Thirsty Dog Taphouse will hold its grand opening March 9 and 10. The taproom and kitchen is located just a block or so away from the production brewery. (I'll have a full report coming soon with photos of the new place.)
