Dinner stop after landing in Cleveland. Pretty large inside; hard to tell from out front. Nice decor, and they have patio seating as well. Good, attentive service. They run 30 taps with 8-10 of their own beers and a pretty good selection of others. Everything is available in 4oz sample glasses, but you need to order them five at a time, and they are on a sliding price scale from $1.50 to $4. Food was decent; bar food, but good within that category.

When I get to a beer place to drink & dine my time is limited. Seems Iím always on the clock even when Iím off. Itís a logistical issue. Always planning the next event. But here at the Brew Kettle, I was really in need of more time. And as I frequent this area quite a bit, that time will come. In the mean time, the beer selection here is awesome for the area and surpasses other locales by offering their own beers to choose from a wide variety of midwestern and nationals. The choice of food was good for my vegan-nature, and the staff was more than accommodating my dietary needs. Those staff were a bit scarce at times, but considering the early Friday nite local crowd, they can be forgiven. And with a shift change, service was more frequent. The highlight of course is the Beer! With the likes of White Rajah & his Black brother, Old 21, and 4 Cís thereís little lack of Very good home choices; but then add ClownShoes Space Cake and some of my hometown favs such as Destihl, Revolution and 5 Rabbit + nearby Dark Horse and STONE - you get what a mean: this is a great place for beer and cool place to come back to for more exploration.

I liked this place better several years ago before it became popular. The atmosphere is good, like a pub with a bar on one side and booths on the other side of a long skinny room. They have tables in an area on the far side of the bar. They recently opened a larger area adjacent to the old bar with additional seating, which doubled their capacity. That has taken a lot of pressure off the wait time, eliminating waiting during non-peak hours. The beer selection is very good. They have 30 beers on tap, with generally 6 to 10 of their own beers available at any one time. Most beers are served in pint glasses with the "big beers" offered in 12 ounce brandy snifters. Prices are reasonable, mostly $4 to $5 per glass. I particularly appreciate the fact that they have many obscure and hard-to-find beers. Beers are listed and described on placemat style menus. The staff is knowledgeable about the beers as are most of the patrons. All are happy to discuss beers and recommend their favorites. Four ounce beer samples are available on a sliding scale price which varies from $1.25 to $3.50 per sample. Their food menu is adequate and the food is good, especially the BBQ. The ribs are excellent. The service is good to very good depending on where you sit and the size of the crowd. Bartenders are very attentive. Brewing on premises is available but they are booked well in advance. Growlers are available and 12 and 22 ounce bottles may be purchased from a cooler in the back. I like this place and stop there whenever I am in the neighborhood.

They have 30 beers on tap and always have 6-10 of their own beers, along with some very good guest beers. They have a lot of beer signs and of course the brewing equipment. I had much better service at the bar than when I was at a table. The prices were very fair for the beer and on Sunday they have really good deals for their own beers. The food was also above-average. A really cool place. There is a place where people make their own wine connected and they have house wines in case you go with non-beer drinkers. You can also brew beer here.

Convenient location off of 71 with plenty of parking in the strip mall. Thirty two taps with several of their beers and great guest taps. I didnít eat, but menu was typical. Worth a visit for the beer alone.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. The parking lot out front was more than sufficient. The place is located in a small strip mall. The bar area is immediately inside the entrance along the left wall. They had about 15 of their own taps and about 15 guest taps. The stuff they had on of their own were for the most part draft only or pub exclusives. They had White Rajah on, of course, but thatís about the only regular I remember them having on. The service was very quick and friendly. I wish I would have eaten here, but I just stuck to beer. Value was pretty nice. Most samples were right around $2 or less.

There is a clean, restaurant style ambiance. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I enjoyed the pulled pork while I was there but I hear the wings are good as well.

Food has gone downhill. Itís inconsistent.. Undercooked. Portions vary.. and the staff knows it. Beer is still good, staff is great, but they even know itís not the same. Itís a Brew Pub, but you get the usual Muffy and Buffys for martiniís.. Good for beer.. Find food elsewhere..
