Their in house brews are wonderful, I always take home a growler of my favorite (Citramax right now). They add new brews of their own making quite often and their guest list is solid. Can be too crowded for my liking on a Fri/Sat night but I just skip those evenings and go on the more chill nights.
The food is quite good, and this place is *not* expensive despite other reviews. A sandwich and fries for 8-10 is reasonable, and it’s locally sourced and sustainably farmed/raised.
Staff is always friendly and nice, service is solid.
This is much better than the Great Lakes across the street. Run by the same people who operate the Bier Market the selection is very inclusive from sessionable IPAs to big winter warmers. The atmosphere is what you would expect for a high end brewpub as are the prices. That is the only downside if you are used to typical Ohio pricing for a pint - except at happy hours pours start from $5.00 and up.
Parking can be a problem depending on time of day but if you can get it there is a free lot a few blocks away. I look forward to visiting this place again to do a true flight of their taps ($15 for seven).
Really cool vibe in this place. Very big, two bars with a bunch of TVs, sort of a modern warehouse sort of theme. Very hip. Great service. Wide variety of beers. About 10 house brews and 10 or 15 more guest taps. The house beers were not great. The amber ale was good, but the scotch ale was bland, the wheat was watery, and the pale ale was under-attenuated with hints of diacetyl. The guest taps were mostly local goodies, with a few Brew Kettle and other beers. We had already eaten dinner, but the food looked so darn good we went back Sunday morning for the Browns brunch, and had some awesome fresh omelets and amazing homefries with our 11 am beers. I really dug the atmosphere here, my favorite from my brief trip to Cleveland. I will definitely be hitting them up for dinner if I ever return. It’s almost a shame they’re already so popular, as they may be loath to change their subpar beers.
(Visited 07/2011): Market Garden is located in the Ohio City area literally right around the corner from Great Lakes (side note: I asked one of the bartenders if they considered it a slap in the face that another brewery opened so close, but she said the more the merrier). The brewpub is located on W 25th and Market. Parking is typically scarce in the surrounding area.
The interior is open and clean looking, with 2 different bars in different sections. Communal benches throughout. The front bar is where I posted up, and it features an L-shaped bar, chandeliers and a "Beer" sign made out of light bulbs.
The beer list consists of around 20 taps, 8 of which are house beers and the rest guest taps. Market Garden’s beers are available in a $15 sampler and include a Pils, Wheat, Scotch, and Fuggles IPA. All of the beers are decent. They also have a selection of bottled beer, including "large format geek beers".
Service at the bar on a weekday evening was good. The bartender was friendly and well-versed in their beer.
I did not try any food on my visit, but the pretzel appetizer the couple next to me got looked delicious.
Overall this is a nice addition to the Cleveland beer scene. Another side note: Kenny Lofton was in the house during my visit.
Trendy looking place with some outdoor seating and a good number of taps with a interesting and tasty food menu. Beer descriptions are detailed and the beers available on this Wednesday night were creative and all solid. You can’t beat the one two punch with Great Lakes across the street.
