Dark and industrial- bike handles are fun and mini beer tanks! Service was good on a slow night. Small selection of their own, plus some other locals, and some from further afield. Some good picks. We just got some fancy fries which were ok. Prices seemed average-ish.
Been here a few times. Kinda thought it was its own thing, but clearly a Market Garden offshoot/test environment because Iíve seen many a beer originally listed as Nano brews show up on the menu at MGB as MGB beers. Nice enough place with a decent patio out back and a few games (including oversized Jenga.) A few Nano/MGB beers on tap and the rest are guests. Flights not available last time I checked. Service is typically average.
This place is divided into three separate bars with the daft list having mostly the same brews at all three. Four beers are their own offerings. The vibe was pretty good in all locations but we wanted the quietest area so we chose the third bar. The bartenders where very helpful and talkative however, it was slow on this side. Not sure I will be back in Cleveland anytime soon but this is a nice stop if youíre in town, just a short walk from Great Lakes Brewing.
This is a cool little place by the West Side Market, very near Great Lakes and Market Garden. Parking sucks down there but there is a municipal lot behind the place. Big list of good guest beers and whatever Nano and Market Garden beers are then on tap. Fancy salads, burgers and sandwiches for food. I went for lunch on a Saturday and sat at the bar. The bartender was knowledgeable and attentive. I donít know how it would be busy, but for lunch it is a nice brewpub stop.
I went here on a very snowy Saturday afternoon. There was still a good crowd there. They had one beer on nitro and another on cask. They have their own beers, some from Market Garden and guest beers on tap. There was a pretty good selection. The ambiance was pretty cool, with different bicycles around the bar. Service was great and the prices were good. One of my favorite places to visit on West 25th.
Arrived in a great mood from Market Garden and had tried 4 more nano beers, kolsch, an experimental hop cask ale, and my two favorites; they had a bitter with simcoe, citra, centennial, and cascade hops, great hoppy beer donít expect an English bitter! And my fav an amber with a great malty backbone with not over the top bitterness.
Did another sampler of guest beers. Dogfish, north coast, 21st amendment, and Jackie o from Athens OH. Was impressed to see revolution from Chicago on draft. Liked all four guest beers finished with the rye from Jackie O, a really excellent beer.
After hitting both places( nano and market garden) I am impressed with the brewers work here. The excellent guest taps are also a great plus. With the other beer places on the block this is a great beer destination for beer fans. I highly recommend nano and market garden back to back.
Another addition to the Ohio City beer scene this is run by the same people who operate Market Garden and the Bier Market. The crowds here are a little different from either. A little easier to get into, the selection may not be quite as extensive as down the streets. However a typical day includes a couple of in house beers, a Market Garden tap line, and other regionals. Make it part of a crawl after a day of shopping at the West Side Market if you have a few hours to kill along with Market Garden, Great Lakes, and Town Hall.
(Visited 06/2013): Nano Brew is the latest entry in the burgeoning beer scene in Ohio City. It is located on W 25th, a stoneís throw from Market Garden, Bier Markt and Great Lakes. Metered street parking is fairly abundant in the surrounding area.
The interior of the old brick building is spacious, with table seating on the left and the bar on the right. There is a large chalkboard listing the beers on tap. A bicycle theme permeates, and the single-barrel brewing equipment is visible in the rear.
Nano Brew has 24 beers on draught, including around 4 of their own. This included Namber, Cleveland #Kolsch, Cluster Bomb Pale and Citramax (under the Market Garden label) on my visit. The remainder of the taps are devoted to craft breweries like Sixpoint, Bells, Two Brothers, Fat Heads and Two Brothers.
Service at the bar on a slow Sunday afternoon was good. The bartender was familiar with the beers and was friendly.
Food at Nano Brew consists of appetizers, soups/salads, sandwiches and house specials like schnitzel. We thoroughly enjoyed our burgers.
Overall this is a fun spot with a cool vibe and good food and beer. Recommended.
