This area by the clocktower is a pretty happening beer scene. I found free street parking a block off 25th, but there are lots around as well. A short walk down 25th from Nano, with a decent bar in the middle if you get thirsty on the way. This is a decent sized space with a full kitchen. Large bar, where I sat. It was perhaps a bit darkish, but not terrible. They had a large taplist and offered flights of four, which I enjoyed. A few guest beers, but the focus was on Market Garden, of course.
Great spot for a meet-up, way too dark inside, they do have a beer garden in back but wouldn’t let me sit there (even though others were there and there was plenty of space). Hate the bathroom setup (just the setup, it’s clean enough), and I could see it really bro-out given time and circumstance (not my experience, just speculation). Server was great, though, he’s obviously been working there for a while and has it all down, just about perfect calibration of service for my set of idiosyncratic needs and a very high-energy guy!). Ordered two flights of four 5oz (or so) samplers at $9 each. Food was interesting and quite good and they have frequent menu rotation. Would be happy to return, a great location and great variety in their own beers, including a good saison and two different smoked beers.
Stopped in for a couple beers with Heather before hitting the WSM to buy beef jerky at Czuchraj’s and other necessities while I was in town for our week-before-Valentine’s-Day-stay-in-and-cook-dinner-together date on Saturday night. It was sunny and in the mid 40s in February, which anyone from Cleveland knows it’s all about El Niño when the locals are in shirt-sleeves and drinking outside the same week as Groundhog Day. Anyway, I digress. So, the place was packed but we lucked out and found seats at the bar (wayyyy cool only-in-the-216 Tap Handles BTW). Had the dopplebock and then shared a wee heavy with my girl. Very nice. Looked at the menu, and she vouched for the tacos as being excellent, but we didn’t eat on this stop, so I’m not gonna rate the grub. Anyway, I tend bar for a living here in Chicago so I’m particular about service and Market Garden passed my test. Beer and service. And the menu did look pretty good so next visit I’ll be able to comment on it. Whatever the case .... Cleveland fucking ROCKS!
Great location next to the Market and appealing structure wise, but the lighting inside sucked ... two bar areas we went to the back bar which had more of a sports bar feel to it ... The service sucked especially since they weren’t very busy and they were very slow on asking if we wanted another beer ... they seemed to have a decent selection of beer, but they were nothing to write home about .... didn’t eat here .... they are in a very competitive landscape with great lakes down the street and the market next door .... I wouldn’t repeat .... trendy hipster type of place that better step it up if they want to survive
Just accross the street from Great Lakes. Nice athmosfere, OK with service. Tried few of their own brews which were nice, was tempted to get a guest beer. There were a few nice ones on the list. Was driving so had to restrict myself. Service, prices, quality, all OK (not outstanding)
Been here numerous times, but apparently never left a review. Pretty cool place, and very clean, albeit a little hipster-ish. Decent selection of brews and flights are available, but pricey. Not a lot of beers that will knock your socks off, but all very well made. The Wallace Tavern Scotch Ale is pretty solid and almost always on tap. Nice bathrooms and very clean. Service is always pretty good too. Only had apps and Sunday brunch as far as food, but everything has been tasty.
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.
Really nice place right next to the Westside Market. They had about 15 of their beers on tap. Flights are $9 for 4 6oz pours. All the beers I tried were at least good, some great. They have 2 bars inside and a good size beer garden. Worth a look.
