(Visited 07/2010 and a couple times since): Fat Headís is located in North Olmsted which is southwest of Cleveland. The brewpub is on Lorain Ave a couple miles off I-480. There is a pretty good-sized lot behind the building that is partially shared by a strip mall. The interior is spacious with the bar near the entrance and a large table seating area past that. The walls are brick with many of Fat Headís beer logos painted on here and there. The bar allows a view of some of the brewing equipment behind glass, as well as a board listing all of the beers available. As for the beers, there are over 30, with 10 being Fat Headís and the rest guest brewers such as Thirsty Dog, Victory and others (including a collaboration beer with Bear Republic), plus a house root beer. There are samplers available as well. The beers are all above average, especially the award winning Head Hunter IPA, and several stray from the typical formula such as a Heller Bock, a Smoked and the aforementioned collaboration Rye beer. Service on an early weekday afternoon was good. The bartender was knowledgeable about the beers (both Fat Headís and guests) and was helpful with samples, etc. The food at Fat Headís is good. I strayed a little from my usual pub grub and hat a Salmon burger and it was good. I have heard their burgers go toe to toe with Beer Engine so I will definitely try one of those next time. Overall this place is a must stop in the northeastern part of Ohio.

Oddly enough based on the iconography of the logo and the slickness if the presentation I assumed it was a chain. Itís not. They had 6 of their own on tap and 20 other craft brews on tap and, oddly enough, miller lite. The beers were all solid. They have a massive dining room and a very long bar and even an hour before closing time on a Tuesday it was really loud. Iíd go back if I was in the area.

Loud and boisterous place, you have to shout over the others. Large and buzy,the staff were mostly bossy and harried, although ours was a peach. Very working class, decent guest taps with ane ye out for the new and different. Their own beers are fairly good, although i havehad the standouts in Buffalo before. They fill growlers, including the guest taps. They make the best root beer in the state, and one of the 5 best I have had in the USA, and a growler of that for the family was only $6. ear the main airport, and come with your own group.

This is a great brewpub - of course you cannot beat Head Hunter as an IPA, and their smoked wings are to die for. I will go back every time I make it to the Cleveland area. Revisit on 07/22/14; Not so high on the smoked wings this time, but the HH still rocks. Majorly busy even on a Tuesday night.

Visited on 2.26.2012. Fun vibe but definitely a bit commercial. Brisket sandwich is very good, wings were stupid good. 8 house taps with sample sizes available. About 20 guest beers as well. Very solid spot.

A completely different vibe than the Pittsburgh location. Cavernous interior with lots of schwag and a whole lot more room than the other spot. It comes across as a little bit more chain pub like than the other spot. They had a very large selection of their own stuff (including the very tasty IPA) and a nice selection of guest taps (although probably fewer guest taps than the Pittsburgh location). Didnít eat at this spot, but we really enjoyed drinking with a few of the Cleveland folks.

Stopped in for a quick bite and a drink. A large restaurant style building that contained a nice bar area with a few TVs. Bartenders were nice and knowledgeable about the house beers. Food was good and had large portions. Selection was top class with great house beers plus guest taps. Another amazing stop in the Cleveland area.

This is an extremely large building with lots of space and a huge bar. On the flip side that also means it gets loud very easily. Fortunately it was fairly empty when I arrived though by 6:00 PM the place was packed.
The food servings are enormous so be prepared and come hungry. Likewise the beer list is as good as it gets. On top of nine or ten house taps there were around twenty guest taps ranging from IPAs to pale ales to imperial stouts. On par with the typical offerings at the Brew Kettle and Beer Engine I think I would rate this place just a notch below the latter and a bit above the former.
Check this out if you are in the area. I expect it to stay around for a while despite the competitive environment in the area.

I thought this place was cool. Huge location, packed with people with an hour wait. Nice tap list, sampler and full pint prices. Food was okay...they seem to be really good at insanely spicy food here.
