Trailhead Brewery

Trailhead Brewery has four taps available and ample sitting and standing space. The beers available during our visit include a Hippy Pale Ale, Coffee Stout, 15 Feet Wheat, and a Belgian Strong.

The Belgian Strong pours with a hazy golden yellow, with nothing in the way of a head. The beer blends a nice amount of sweetness with a little bit of an alcohol bite at the conclusion. The beer warms up nicely, with a small amount of malt at the end.


Trailhead’s Hoppy Pale Ale has a tremendously alluring nose, and pours with a darker golden color. The beer possesses a lacing that creeps down the brewery’s mason jar.

The Coffee Stout is decidedly dark and pours with no head. The coffee element is bitter and allows for the sweetness to be moderated.

The brewery’s offerings are all very cheap, meaning that a couple will be able to have an unforgettable night for around $25. Visit the brewery’s Twitter at for more information about their facilities and hours. Trailhead is located at 1674 Merriman Road in Akron, Ohio.
