(Visited 09/2006): Brew Kettle is located a short distance off I-71 in Strongsville. There is parking both in the front and rear, but getting the right driveway is essential. The space is narrow with the bar on the left side with an impressive chalkboard beer list, a big mirror with the Ringneck logo and a stuffed deer hindquarters (?). There is seating along the right side and in the back. In the rear end of the Brew Kettle is the BOP area. An impressive collection of breweriana covers almost every available spot. The beer selection is impressive. There are around 24 draft beers with about 8 of them being Ringneck brews. Other brewers like Stone, DFH, Clipper City, Barrelhouse and Lagunitas are represented too. As for bottles, there are Ringneck brews to go in the BOP area, around 8 different beers. There are 3 levels of samplers you can try. Service here is good. The bartender clearly knew the beers and was kind enough to go outside the lines of the standard sampler to accommodate what we wanted to try. The food here is standard pub fare. All we tried was the hot pretzel but it was actually very good. The mustard on it was eye-wateringly spicy but tasty. Overall this is definitely a good place to visit either when visiting Cleveland or on the way there via I-71. I will definitely make it a regular stop in my travels to the northern part of the state.

Probably the best beer bar Iíve visited in the Cleveland area so far. Very vibrant atmosphere for a Tuesday night. They just expanded so they have a sizable dining area plus a very long bar. They have almost 30 taps with their own craft beer mixed in with other craft brews. You can also brew your own beer in the back. The wings were also very tasty. Iíll definitely go back.

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.

Kind of a tired strip mall place, packed on a Sunday afternoon. Did not try the good. Nice beer selection, several of their house beers and lots of nice guest beers. Several bottles to go. Staff was very slow and ranged from friendly to surly. Good prices.

This place looks like anything but a brewpub from the outside in a row of strip malls and with a tiny door and no windows, but step inside and you enter a beer oasis. Relatively narrow, but very, very long bar, rather dark, but welcoming. On top of their exclusive Ringneck beers (a couple of which are also available for takeout), they have around 20 beers including some top notch micros from all over the country (though perhaps not necessarily all that rare) and a few European ones. You expect a place of this kind in NYC, but in Strongsville? I wish I had hit Mad Brewers as well, because their beers were very well brewed indeed and the staff seemed as knowledgeable as you get, inquiring on the places we visited and would visit on our road trip.

An interesting place. Large and leading into the brew your own. Everyone knew their beer, the bartenders who pointed out maybe the best tap list in the city if not the state, the lady selling ingredients. Cheap food for my mates. Very long large bar, and you can take the snifters with you to bottle or to brew. All kinds of people here and stuff going on.Tasty soft drinks too.

One mile off interstate in strip of business on the left off the road. Good parking in lot. Clean older building with bar on left with tables for food and beverages on the right. Standard and seasonals on tap of Ringneck and good selection of nationals. Freindly server with knowledge of brews. Had wurst sampler plate and the menu had starters, salads, sandwiches. On site public and brewing operations in back with bombers to go. Nice location and I will stop again.

Pretty cool spot - there is a long, narrow bar area up front and a nice big U-brew area in the back. A sort of parking lot area out the back that serves as a patio as well. There was a nice selection of stuff on - some of it was quite tasty. The spalt bomb and red eye were standouts for me. Cheap too - which never hurts. Solid, if typical pub fare on the menu. I enjoyed hanging out with miketd and crizay though. A pretty solid spot to have a few - the continuous smell of boiling wort sure doesnít hurt the ambience either.

Located is some kind of mall strip. Looks like an old folks restaurant. 24 taps all total when I was there. Four of the taps were homebrews and the twenty others were from reputable American micros (Bellís, Stoudtís, Founders, Bear Republic, etc.). The four homebrews were good to very good. The 20 guess taps were mostly good beers that you find in just about any beer bars except for the Rogue Black Brutal (Skullsplitter) which I more than happy to find on tap. Super friendly service. I was recommended the BBQ spaghetti by fellow ratebeerian crizay who happens to work there. And Iím doing the same to anybody reading this. Get the BBQ spaghetti, a regional speciality I was told, this is a pretty tasty and original meal.
