HiHo Brewing Company [Cuyahoga Falls]
Greetings, swillers. We return to Cuyahoga Falls for the opening of HiHO Brewing!
I was lucky enough to have space in the schedule to stop in at the grand opening January 6th.
A very generous taproom and bar greets you upon entering, this will clearly be a great space to gather.
Owners Ali and Jon Hovan were there to greet guests, answer questions, and politely accept odd photograph requests:
They were great hosts and made some even better beer. Here's a rundown of what I tried:
- SMaSH Series
- Gorges Blonde Ale
- Cardinal Series (Ambitter)
- Roasted Coffee Ale
- Touchdown Brown Ale
All were quite nice, but my favorites were the Roasted Coffee Ale and Touchdown Brown. But the Roasted Coffee Ale seems to be "best in class" and "best in show" for me. We've all had a coffee stout/ale/whatehaveyou, I'm sure you can think of the standard taste now. What HiHO did with there brew makes it a standout, it's like having a coffee beer in high definition, all elements stood out and made for a new perspective on a staple beer. Really enjoyable.
I look forward to the additional brews in the works and you should too. Head on over to the Akron area and check out HiHO Brewing Co!
