The wife and I were in Willoughby for the weekend and stopped by the brewery on Friday night. We had tried a few of their beers at a festival before, and were excited to try their Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter again.

The brewery itself is quite large, much bigger than I expected. The place was packed, and we had about a 40 minute wait for a table, so we hung out by the bar and tried a few beers.

We got the full sampler which was quite a deal at $8. Everything was good for the style, but the Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter is amazing.

We ordered one of their pizzas which was really good and a butternut squash and chicken pasta which was so/so.

Overall a cool place, but it was a little too packed for my liking on a Friday night. I would definately stop back for a pizza and a porter.

drove up without Ed, much to his displeasure.
10 beers on tap and none of them an IPA, not so much a bother to me you understand but it's what the kids want these days. did catch the Peanut Butter Cup Porter, their flagship, not too shabby. But the kolsch was the best of the lot, me thinks. Cool old train space out east of Cleveland.

Great spot. Vibe was very laid back even though they were doing a big bottle release. Jim was our waiter today and he did a great job for the amount of people that were in the dining area. Food was solid, I had a burger and it tasted great. Guest taps were awesome today as well. Bottle release went very smoothly. Had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Nice brewery with something for everyone. Food is solid and with peanut butter cup porter on tap non stop worth the trip. Also have a crowler machine! Call ahead and give them a heads up if you want more than 2 or 3.

First time visit was for the Nutsmasher release so it was a mad house. They did the best they could to try and keep up with serving, but I would have to guess on a non event day, this place would be really chill. Great beers and great apps. I do plan on returning to get a full meal and more of that great beer!

My first visit to Willoughby's was for the Nut Smasher release. Given the large turnout, service was extremely slow; however, the bar/restaurant was very nice, and I would definitely return for a non-event visit.

Hit the WBC during a biz trip through NE Ohio. It was my 2nd visit and was very pleased both times. The Daisy Cutter is a must have for the IPA fan and their Christmas Ale is one of the best of breed. They generously brew that as part of a 'Christmas in July' celebration, which coincided with one of my visits.

Food here is also excellent; you can really do well if you show up @ Happy Hour, when appetizers are 1/2 price. Service was very friendly and accommodating.

Kudos to the owners on the fine job of converting a former railroad station to a pub/restaurant use which provides a very appealing and comfortable setting to enjoy WBC's good works.

I only had the Peanut Butter Porter, which was pretty good. I really enjoyed the food. I had the pretzel, chicken spring roll and their version of a corn dog (a kielbasa with a jalapeno & corn batter).
