Wonderful hidden treasure. As soon as we set foot in the bar area and it was learned that we traveled from out of town to visit, Garin (head brewer) came over and chatted with us. Never has a brewer been so enthusiastic about the art of brewing or more welcoming to outsiders! It was a little smoky in there, but on the far side, they had the back door open and a fan blowing towards the bar, so we were able to be in a smoke-free-like environment. For 4 taps, it costs us $8 - apparently happy hour prices are in effect no matter which day you visit. I grabbed every bottle of their stuff that was available to bring back with me, and for just $3 a bottle, this place is by far one of the best craft beer establishments in the country. Thanks again for a wonderful recommendation, Drew!

A brewery primarily. The bar is like a patio or a deck, with a hanging trellis covered in christmas lights. It always has the enchanting aroma of boiling wort and bitter hops. Great house beer and high end guest beers that span a very wide variety. Great "theme" parties such as "Hoptoberfest" and "X-Mas in Belgium". Good growler prices, with specials changing all the time. As for service, how can you beat having the guy that brewed the beer pulling your pint and planting himself down next to you to talk beer and "shop"? Feels like home.

These guys are great and really know there beer. Cask pulls and 26 different beers on tap. Most of these are by manufacturers the average beer drinker wouldn’t know. Bell’s, Jolly Pumpkin, Franziskaner, Left Hand, etc. Love this place and Jason and Dawn rock!

Buckeye is great. Great Buckeye brews on tap, guest taps, cool setting and conversation. The place to meet. If hungry, can bring in food from next door (Winking Lizard Tavern) or anywhere.

***I notice it say’s "Out of business" but really it’s now "Buckeye Beer Engine"*** This place is the best!!! I can only describe the look and feel as "working man’s upscale" the food is real good and the beer....oh the beer. 4 or 5 of their own taps plus 4-5 taps each of a few other micros. Prices are listed straight out for both glasses (pints or snifters) and samples. Local tip...after ordering a beer ask for a "taste" of 1 or 2 others, you’ll usually get ’em free.

A great place to drink beer. The girls behind the bar are knowledgeable and friendly, and the beer selection and quality are great. Never ate here becuase it is too close to Joe’s Deli in Rocky River. A must if you are in the Cleveland Area even if it is in the Western suburbs.

This is a great place to grab a beer. It lacks the food and wide selection of The Brew Kettle, but it does have a few quality guest taps and the beer brewed here is usually a bit better than the Ringneck beers at The Brew Kettle (although Ringneck’s pretty good in its own right). The atmosphere is kind of cool, but it kind of feels like a really cool basement bar more than a brewery tasting room. Staff is cool and they know their stuff.

I went here with a fellow whos been brewing beer there for the past six years. Great place, somewhat under-developed, but with the cases of raw malt visible in the back from the bar, it makes it a nice touch. I met the owner who got offended by my Ruinatuion shirt and said I need to be drinking Ohio brews. Needless to say he was drunk, because he owned a brewery I think thats his profession. Tap list was quite respectable, pleanty of guest taps [the fav for me was a casked Two Hearted.] There was some party trays of bread, crackers and spread for eating, but there was a take out place right next to it for a serious meal.

This place is a "Must See" for any respectable beer lover/geek. The bar will probalby remind yoiu of someone's basement. You'll find about 6 - 8 Buckeye brews and 6-8 guest taps - selection ranges from De Dolle to Stone to 3Floyds (Yes, Dreadnaught is a frequent guest). Stop by at an off time, brewer Garin is a fantastic person to talk beer with. Absolutely ESSENTIAL.

Visited for the Hoptoberfest. As described before, like walking into someones basement bar. Except there are a butt-load of great beers available for your pleasure. Tons of great Buckeye beers. Guest taps including Two Brothers, Rogue Old Crustacean, DFH 90 min and more. Great service, Garin is a great guy to talk beer to. Highly recommended.
