Akron Ale House tap list starts with Bud Light, but also offers local brews (Facebook).

Akron Ale House, a bar and restaurant drawing on the model of the successful Ebenezer Ale House and Eden Ale House, opened a month ago.

It’s the third place from owners Nathan Springer and Shawn Schweis. “We’re doing the same things we’ve done at our other places, and people seem to be enjoying it,” Springer said.

The new place, 15 Main St., Akron, lists a wide variety of craft beer, but also has Bud Light for the traditionalists. The food menu includes the usual tavern fare like artichoke dip and wings, pizza, burgers, and sandwiches, but 90 percent of the food is from scratch, Springer said. The fried calamari is soaked in buttermilk before it’s fried, the French fries and chips are cut in house, “we cut our own steaks,” he said.

The restaurant, formerly Akron House, seats about 130 people. “It’s a big building,” Springer said. “There’s a banquet hall on the second floor that seats about 100 that we hope to have renovated by the fall.”
