McArthur's Brew House is looking to expand.

The Cuyahoga Falls nanobrewery is scouting properties to open a separate, larger production brewery, tasting room and restaurant.

"We need something a little bit bigger so we can keep up with demand," co-founder and brewer Kevin McArthur said. "We are barely keeping up now."

McArthur and his wife Abbey launched their two-and-a-half-barrel brewery in early 2017 in a storefront at 2721 Front St. It's a popular destination, but open only limited hours Thursday through Sunday because McArthur can't produce enough beer on the small system to be open more often.

The McArthurs want the new location to be quite different and are hoping to find at least 10 acres that they can build on — as opposed to renovating and retrofitting an existing space. They also want the site to have a scenic view.

"We're looking for some property to make it a destination spot," McArthur said about the search process. "We're looking to have the feel of being in your own back yard, you know?

"We'd like to be able to walk around the property and have a campfire," he added. "We also are looking to possibly grow some of our hops and raise some bees."

The McArthurs aren't limiting the search to any particular city, but are primarily interested in the greater Akron area. A couple of potential sites in Hudson and Bath have fallen through.

The new space would have a 10-barrel brewing system. The current location would remain open, with the nano-system serving up small test and experimental batches.

The McArthurs aren't in a rush to find a new home. But they also don't want the search to drag on.

McArthur, who works as a full-time firefighter while also brewing, said he would like to have a site picked out, architectural drawings done and possibly construction started later this year with opening targeted for next year.

"It's just time to take the next step," McArthur said.
