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. Nano was visible from where I parked, so I started there. They have a restaurant and a tap room with separate entrances. As JStax says, inside is not large, but the back patio has loads of room. Agreed on draft list as well. Four Nano beers, but they were out of one of them. I just ordered the Dunkelweiss, which is a style I enjoy that seems heavily underrepresented in the US craft beer scene. Theirs was solid. Lots of Market Garden taps, which is a bit weird since you can walk a block to their own taproom/brewpub. Decent enough place, would not hesitate to return. Did not ask about flights.
Visited later in the afternoon on a Saturday. Very near Great Lakes, so it’s worth visiting the area to go to multiple places. Inside is sort of small, but they have a huge patio out back that you can drink on. They have a lengthy draft list, but I was expecting to see more of their own beers on it. They only had 4. The rest were decent craft beers with a few other Cleveland breweries represented. Service was decent, but as another reviewer said, not overly chatty. Not sure why that is a theme as I am sure they were different servers being several months apart. Did not order food, but it is available. I would visit again, but probably not make it a priority.

The place is just down the block from Market Garden and Great Lakes. It is a long thing brick repurposed building with a long bar in the middle of it and tables along the side wall. Their tap list consisted of 3 hours beers and about a dozen of guest taps but seemed to be slightly higher in price than would be expected. The staff were average, not really talkative, just doing their jobs but lacked knowledgeable about their own beers. A good place to try something new but not a Must See by any means
Dark and industrial- bike handles are fun and mini beer tanks! Service was good on a slow night. Small selection of their own, plus some other locals, and some from further afield. Some good picks. We just got some fancy fries which were ok. Prices seemed average-ish.
Been here a few times. Kinda thought it was its own thing, but clearly a Market Garden offshoot/test environment because I’ve seen many a beer originally listed as Nano brews show up on the menu at MGB as MGB beers. Nice enough place with a decent patio out back and a few games (including oversized Jenga.) A few Nano/MGB beers on tap and the rest are guests. Flights not available last time I checked. Service is typically average.
This place is divided into three separate bars with the daft list having mostly the same brews at all three. Four beers are their own offerings. The vibe was pretty good in all locations but we wanted the quietest area so we chose the third bar. The bartenders where very helpful and talkative however, it was slow on this side. Not sure I will be back in Cleveland anytime soon but this is a nice stop if you’re in town, just a short walk from Great Lakes Brewing.
This is a cool little place by the West Side Market, very near Great Lakes and Market Garden. Parking sucks down there but there is a municipal lot behind the place. Big list of good guest beers and whatever Nano and Market Garden beers are then on tap. Fancy salads, burgers and sandwiches for food. I went for lunch on a Saturday and sat at the bar. The bartender was knowledgeable and attentive. I don’t know how it would be busy, but for lunch it is a nice brewpub stop.
I went here on a very snowy Saturday afternoon. There was still a good crowd there. They had one beer on nitro and another on cask. They have their own beers, some from Market Garden and guest beers on tap. There was a pretty good selection. The ambiance was pretty cool, with different bicycles around the bar. Service was great and the prices were good. One of my favorite places to visit on West 25th.
