This place is unbelievable, just on beer selection alone, but then they put an incredible menu in front of you that includes; the best damn, award winning, pulled pork sandwhich, incredible mac and cheese, a unique barbeque spaghetti and much, much more. This brew pub has it all, I just wish they would expand, but then again, they might lose something. If you are a beer geek, this is your place!
This is my favorite bar in the Cleveland area. The brewpub’s beers aren’t as good as Buckeye’s, but they’re still good. The atmosphere isn’t as cool as Great Lakes, but it’s not as crowded and is still a cool place to hang out. The food isn’t really as good as Great Lakes, but I’m partial to barbecue. On top of that, the place has a large selection of high quality guest taps like Stone, Dogfish Head, Bell’s, 3 Floyds and Founders. The place rocks.
Have a great time every time I visit. The staff is very pleasant and knowledgeable. 24 taps from breweries such as Founders, Bear Republic, Avery, and Stone and there is usually 5-7 Ringneck/Brew Kettle beers on tap as well. The choriza sausage and beer gumbo alone is worth the trip.
What can I say about this place that has not already been said. Awesome beer guest and house. I love BBQ and this place kills it with the smokehouse and BBQ. If you stop in Cleveland please do yourself a favor and go here.

Great place. Long bar and about 20 taps of beer, including about 5 of their own which are usually good as well as some very strong micros from around the country. There’s a brewery in the back as well where you can brew, bottle, and label your own.

Every one of the staff is very knowledgeable about the beer selections on tap. Its the only place I have been to where you can sit at the bar and have 18 quality craft beers on tap, excellent BBQ (the wings, gumbo, pulled pork nachos and ribs are all outstanding choices), and have a brew it yourself setup in the back. Way cool! They constantly run specials. For example, on Thursdays they tap a firkin and call it Firkin Thursdays. This week they are doing OGRE FEST where 18 beers on tap will all be Imperials or Doubles. Again - Very cool! This is just a great place and I’m gland I live close to it!
Update: They have done a great job IMO of working at updating their brews. They just added 6 taps that hold 1/6 bbl so they can offer limited release stuff that they couldn’t offer up before. Espresso oak aged yeti, KBS, their kriek are up right now to name a few. I like it. I like the changes and look forward to seeing where things go.
WOW...First word that came to mind. Drove up from Columbus today for a visit here...I had really high expectations and I was NOT disappointed. This place was top notch. Service was friendly, knowledgable, efficient. The food was awesome. BEST MAC AND CHEESE EVER! And the beer! What fun! I love how they let you do your tastings here. So many to choose from...There were five of us and we had a great time. Prices were MORE then reasonable, and it was great fun watching the folks in back brewing and bottling their own beer...I will definitely drive back up here to visit. GREAT PLACE!!!
A gret beer stop for just about anyone from the beginner beer hobbyist to the homebrewer.Not only can you eat fantastic BBQ here, they also have there own beers on tap plus guest taps.They also have brew on premise which is a whole other expieience.The waitress we had knew her beers and which ones changed off the menu.Samples start at .85! Are you kidding me.The beers were good and the food was awesome.A definate must stop if your in the Cleveland area.
