The ambiance and the location are really cool. Brick and stone work are really appealing. Have met the two brewers on a couple of occassions including their first dinner tasting last year. These guys are great - knowledgeable, helpful and interesting. The Chef is incredible coming up with some outstanding food. The Grilled Portabella Burger was fantatic. The "Seven" Brew made from seven hop varities is a mainstay on my list.
The cornerstone has a great selection of bers on tap since the new brewer, Erik Rohschiller, has taken over. In october i had the pumpkin ale and it was out of this world. In December Erik has is christmas alr on tap and i must say it is the BEST christmas ale i have ever had. The food is also great and sitting next to the wood burning stove was like sitting in heaven.. This is a place you need to check out if you havenít done so, and if you havenít been there since Erik took over as brewer you should really get out there and rate it again.. Great turnover since changing owners!
Came here on vacation while attending a Browns game. Received a 12 beer sampler flight, still the largest I have ever received. It was also cheaper than many 5 beer samplers Iíve received, so great value. The food was amazing and I would definitely like to go back. Great place!
This is almost as great a stop as the BrewKettle if you are heading to the Cleveland airport or have a long layover (really itís a perfect stop for any Cleveland traveler). 8 MIN from rental car return! Quiet little neighborhood with a nice little brewery on the corner. Good atmosphere, quick and generally knowledgeable service. The beer selection was very good in my opinion and all the beers were drinkable to very good. The food looked, smelled and tasted great. Solid food and beer all the way around. I will be back!
This place is a nice neighborhood watering hole. They had eight of their own beers on tap, plus a full bar. Pizzas, burgers and salads on the menu. The beers were all solid enough to support this neat little place.
Easy to find location on corner with parking next to the building. Came in the back door with the brewing operation on your left and along bar and seating area to your right. Bar in the center left. Saturday lunch crowd that was busy but not crowded. Staff behind the bar was friendly and was quick to offer the sampler set. Stand on the bar with printed description of beers was very helpful. All of the beers were good drinkable beers with one outstanding seasonal beer. Did not get an opportunity to try the food but the food I saw was well presented and was a large portion. Donít know if I will make it back to this dislocation again but I enjoyed the visit.
(Visited 06/2008): Cornerstone Brewing is located in downtown Berea just a couple miles from I-71. Street parking is fairly plentiful in the surrounding Berea Triangle area.
The brewpub is long and relatively narrow with the bar running almost the entire length of the establishment. Table seating takes up the rest of the space. There is a board showing all the current beers on tap behind the bar.
The beer selection is decent and pretty well-rounded, and Cornerstone has a sampler of their 7 beers available. The beers range from Lager to Dry Stout with a couple interesting choices like a Tripel and Spring Wine. Overall the beers are average with one or two standouts.
Service was decent on a weekday evening.
The food here is above average pub grub. I tried a burger and found it very tasty, and my friends also enjoyed their sandwiches.
Overall this is a worthwhile stop considering how near the interstate it is. Definitely worth a visit to anyone traveling to or from Cleveland on I-71.
Stopped on a Wednesday night, with a group of 6 of us, no wait to be seated mostly empty bar with a dark dim ambiance, which was cool.. they feature up to 9 of their beers on tap.. typically the number is 7. decent beer. food is good, and kitchen is right up front where you can see whats going on. prices are a touch high on food i thought but everything else is well done. in the middle of BW college, you often donít find a college crowd. small patio out front and parking on the side of the building.
