UnHitched Brewing to offer lunch; Pizza+ Buffet will open on July 15
Fans of UnHitched Brewing Co. in downtown Louisville will be pleased to know that the brewery and restaurant will soon be offering lunch.
In an announcement on its Facebook page, UnHitched said it would launch a lunch service this summer, starting July 20. Lunch will be served in the former Palmer Market space at 228 E Main St., next to UnHitched.
When the former Palmer Market space became available, the UnHitched team planned to use it as a private event space and thought it would also serve as a good lunch spot.
“Until now we have only been able to offer semi-private events in our brasserie, so with the new space we thought it would be good to offer a lunch service on the days we are currently open,” said UnHitched owner Adam Longacre. “Our main room is really not conducive to serving lunch most days with Garret brewing and Alex and his team prepping for the culinary side of things throughout the day. By having a separate, enclosed room, lunch can be run without competition against the noise of preparation, cleaning, etc.

Expect to see some favorites from UnHitched’s dining room menu as well as lunch-only dishes. Longacre said the menu will feature standard lunch items, including a selection of salads, sandwiches and snacks from the dinner menu as well as a dessert or two, and of course, beer and the whole list of dining room drinks, also including wine, cocktails and soft drinks.
“We are anticipating a good amount of takeout orders, so we are designing a menu that will be items to quickly take to the kitchen. We will also have some items on our dinner menu with lunch-only items,” Longacre said. “Ultimately, people expect a high-quality food and beverage experience when they come to UnHitched, whether it’s for a quick bite or a day to drink with a Smashburger.”
Lunch will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in space at 228 E. Main St. Longacre said they will start with those hours and explore expanding hours in the first part of the week if there is a demand for that.
He also mentioned that he thought having the space on Main Street would help drive traffic to the brewery, as its frontage is on the corner of less busy South Mill Street.
UnHitched Brewing opened in late October 2019 and has been popular ever since. As Louisville’s only brewery, it attracts many locals, and its delicious food, extensive craft beer menu, and unique ambiance attract guests from all over.
Guests can dine in the dining room, brasserie and bar. In summer, the outdoor terrace is open.
In the bar, table service is offered and the tables are also equipped with QR codes, allowing customers to order and pay via their smartphone.
UnHitched is located at 115 S. Mill St. in Louisville and is open for dinner from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, and 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, with the kitchen closing one hour before closing time each day.
Stark Flavor Coffee Crawl runs until August 1
There’s still time to participate in the Stark Flavor Coffee Crawl. Ending August 1st, the Coffee Tour has been set up for people to support local coffee shops and get a little something back.
This isn’t the Stark Flavor team’s first upcoming coffee tour. In November 2020, it was the Stark Flavor pilot program. Attendance was good.
“We had a great response to doing a coffee exploration at the time, so we thought this would be the perfect theme to relaunch to prepare for the full launch of our future Stark Flavor platform,” said the founder. by Stark Flavor, Mike Sturdivant.
This time around there are 12 participating cafes: Carpe Diem Coffee Shop, Front Porch Cafe, Muggswigz in downtown Canton and Lake Cable, Ohio Roasting Company, Pioneer Coffee Roasters, Shale Craft Coffee, Speak Easy Coffee, Tremont Coffee at Massillon and Perry Twp., Uptown Joe and Whole Latte Love Cafe.
The idea is to stop in these shops over time, not in one day, with the aim of filling out your digital passport with stops in the 12 shops. Once completed, you can choose between a personalized t-shirt or a coffee mug.
To enter, go to starkflavor.com and create an account. Once logged in, select “digital passport series” from the drop-down menu. From there, the list of cafes will appear.
When you get to one of the 12 locations, you’ll need to request the Stark Flavor code. To scan the QR code, open your phone’s camera and click the link when it appears. This will take you to the Stark Flavor website and automatically check you into that cafe.
After completing all 12 passport stops, the redeem button on the website will unlock and you can choose your free reward as a thank you for supporting local small businesses.
That’s the whole mission behind Stark Flavor: supporting small business owners in Stark County.

“Stark Flavor, in general, will be a comprehensive digital platform supporting various types of small businesses in the Stark County area,” Sturdivant said. “We’re starting with restaurant, brewpub, cafe, and winery businesses and areas, as well as a platform for small, local nonprofits.”
“We have further expansion plans in other areas towards the end of this year/next year which we are delighted to announce at a later date.”
Beyond coffee exploration, Stark Flavor has a few projects in the works. The team recently announced that they will be hosting a cigar and whiskey event in downtown Guangzhou in September.
“It will be a limited ticket event that will also have an additional VIP option for those to come,” Sturdivant said.
“We also look forward to presenting another Passport over the holidays which we are also excited to announce at a later date once we have finalized participating locations!”
