Beer at the Airport at CAK (Akron Canton)
« on: January 06, 2010, 12:50:12 PM »

After spending over a week running around Akron and Cleveland with our family and sortof hunting for the much-talked-about "Christmas Ale" from Great Lakes Brewery, we finally did find it on our way out of town at the airport Great Lakes Brewery watering hole.  They sort of serve food in there too, so I posted this note in here.

Though I hear that the Christmas Ale has changed quit a bit from years past it was a VERY pleasant beer.  Yes it has some fruit flavors and spices that I ordinarily do not like in beer, but it was pretty darn good.  It was NOT available at the Brewery in Cleveland or any of the high volume places (like Winking Lizard) or in any of the deep (that means a lot of selections), stores we haunted hunting for a bottle or a 6-pack.  I would agree pretty much with the other posters on Ratebeer about this one.

Here is a quick snapshot of the going away beer at the airport.

Good for you.  It was on the draft menu at Fire in Shaker Square but they had just run out.

I tried to talk the Beertender to slide me a couple unopened bottles, but he held his ground..

Honestly a much better beer than I would have guessed.
