Stopped by for a beer and watch the end of the OSU Clemson game, ambience was comfortable, waitress was really nice. Had a bourbon aged ale. Food was okish, nachos had the liquid cheese. Good stop for a beer.
Finished off a day in Cleveland here with a burger and one last beer. Huge list that covers pretty much everything. Food was mediocre at best. If I’m back in town I’ll just drink here and not worry about food. Free popcorn which is a plus.
Visited while in town for a conference. It was hot outside (92, humid) but it was hotter inside - crazy. I didn’t sit near the bar, so all I saw was their bottled beer list. They have about 125 bottled beers, and easily 20% of those are rated 90+ on Ratebeer, so there is plenty to choose from. Many were a little pricey, but there were some gems for $4. I got the Dogfish Head Zeno here for $7 and it included a free glass, so that was pretty neat. Got a buffalo chicken sandwich that was good, not great. I’d come back (on a cooler day).
100% a sports bar with TVs everywhere right by the Indians’ stadium. Very large place too, but it was almost empty when we were there on a Wednesday night. No local teams were playing though. A bit over 20 draught beers were on deck that night. The list was not particularly impressive per se, but considering the environment that does not exactly seemed designed to pull the beer geek in, it was spectacular. Expect a couple from the regular Great Lakes lineup, perhaps a Stone or two, a Dogfish Head or two, maybe a Founders, some Bells. You get the picture. Myself, I ended up getting a classic: Two Hearted. Not recommendable by any means, but I guess if you’re in Cleveland for more than a couple of days, you’d quickly run out of options. Just make sure you’re into sports bars.
Downtown Cleveland with doors on both sides of the corner. There the Saturday night before Bengals-Browns football game. Crowded put the service was good and the beers served quickly. Nice selection of taps and bottles. Had the fish dinner and the portion was good size and flavor was good.
