This place was packed on a warm, sunny May afternoon during an Indians game. We eventually got a seat outside and only came for a beer. They do offer some special taps separate from their standard offerings. I got to try the ESB and Schwarzbier, which were both very good. Didnít try any of the food. Overall, a place Iíd be interested in coming back to. Be careful, this place fills up on a nice summer day though!

This part of Ohio City is a great place to spend an evening in Cleveland. Start off here at Great Lakes to enjoy some great locally crafted beers along with better than average food before hitting Market Garden, McNultyís, and more.

There are typically a couple of brewpub only releases on at any given time. In addition a small shop lets you buy take out bottles although you can generally get a better deal at Giant Eagle. Parking can be hard to come by depending on the time of day but a lot behind the building is available if you are lucky.

This is a great brew pub.. Iíve been coming here for many years and it is always a good time with good food and good beer. They have a large patio for outside dining, and the bar room feels like an old preprohibition place. The stilton cheese soup is great. They have most of the line up on tap all the time, with some pub only handles. Parking sucks especially if the lot is full, and the food is not cheap, but it is worth a stop. Try to arrange to be on the tour.

So my scores are all over the place for this one for different reasons. Ambiance is top notch, original old wood elliot and ness bar on the entry level, great vintage eating area upstairs, and awesome caverns downstairs, really nice place. Service was very good the few tiems ive been here and never been disappointed. Selections is pretty solid, only their beers on tap, but have all the staples, plus seasonal and a few one off brew pub only beers. Food is very veryt good, but are served in small portions. Vlaue was tough because the beers are well worth it, good, and fairly priced, but the food, while tasy, was ridiculously expensive, especially considering how much you get. Overall, still worth stopping for drinks and atmosphere, but I would suggest eating somewhere else first if going for dinner.

Great place with a great selection of own beers. We ordered the sampler of all beers avaIable, tasted 5 and they were just great. Food is OK but selection less. But then this is a brewery. Good selection also in their shop.

Great food...great beer. We had the stuffed peppers as an appetizer, the pretzel-crusted chicken and a burger. All were great. You canít go wrong at this place.

This restaurant/brewery was an awesome place to be before the Indians game. Got some chow and an IPA and took the "Fatty Wagon" shuttle to the game and back for a few greenbacks. Visited on a weekday. Itís probably overwhelmed on the weekend.

When I visited: May 2012. What I had: The Wright Pils (draught), Commodore Perry IPA (draught), Holy Moses White Ale (draught), Grilled Bratwurst & Pierogies, Margherita Pub Pizza and white wine for the lady. What I liked: Beautiful outdoor patio, delicious food, superb beer lineup that covers a wide range of styles, interesting one-offs, tried two GLB brews that I hadnít sampled before, bartenders provided warm and timely service, cozy ambiance downstairs. What I disliked: no guest taps or bottles, slow service on the patio, brewery attracts some "Bud Light" types due to central touristy location. Would I go back? Yes. Overall Rating: 84
