Insider's Tour: Missing Mountain Brewing Company

  • Missing Mountain Brewing Company (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

As a member of Akron CREW, you are invited to join your CREW colleagues as we enjoy an exclusive Insider’s Tour of the highly anticipated local brewery, Missing Mountain Brewing Company.

Missing Mountain Brewing Company was founded by Dan Kephart, Dave Bertolotti, Keith McFarlane, and Danny Yagersz.  What started as a homebrewing hobby starting in 2008 has now led to one of the most highly anticipated commercial brewing locations overlooking the Cuyahoga River by landowner Al Klaben. 

Throughout the next year and half, the MMBC rolled up their sleeves alongside Al, contractors, and friends and built several key structures on the property, including the brand new brewhouse.

After many months of hard work, construction, and remodeling MMBC opened their doors to the public on June 9, 2018. You are invited to come and enjoy the natural beauty of Northeast Ohio on the patio overlooking the Cuyahoga River. 

Our group will gather in the three-season room for an exclusive tour. Please plan to stay following the tour to enjoy not only the great beverages but the great atmosphere and company as well.
