Even though I have lived in Cleveland my entire life I had never been to this establishment until yesterday afternoon. I arrived at about 3:30 P.M. There is plenty of free parking in a big lot right outside in front. When I walked in I noticed that the place seemed rather dead, which i guess shouldn't be surprising for a Tuesday afternoon. The bar is located to the right of the front entrance. I first thing I noticed was so spacious the inside of this establishment was. There are lots of tables and booths to sit it and of course the car. There is also an outside patio int he front by the bar area. There was one couple at the bar when I sat down to order my first beer. the bartender came over to me immediately when i sat down. I got my first beer promptly. When I finished my first beer he offered me a sample of a beer that I was considering ordering as my second beer. I enjoyed the sample and ended up getting that beer as my second one. When he served me my second beer it was about 3:55 P.M. 5 minutes before the start of happy hour. The bartender was kind enough to wait until 4:00 to ring up my second beer so I could get the happy hour discount on it. I will certainly try to visit this place again soon. Both the beers I had were quite enjoyable and I look forward to trying some of their other offerings.

This was stop #10 for my wife and I on a 9-day East Coast pub crawl and a family visit. The brewery is located in a busy retail area of downtown Willoughby but is difficult to find because it is situated behind the stores that front the street and is not visible from a drive-by. We got lucky and noticed it at the end of the large city parking lot where we were turning around to take another look during a fourth pass along the street.

We had heard about the Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Stout, so we planned our trip home on the last night of our pub crawl to have dinner and to see why all of the excitement about this beer. There were 9 beers on tap so we ordered a sampler flight of all of them to accompany our meal. They were served in small snifters, which made a pretty picture when they were all lined up on our table. It was tempting to start right away with the Peanut Butter Cup Stout, but we have a favored order to follow when evaluating beers. So its tasting came in the middle of the pack.

It was worth the wait, and the same could be said for most of the beers. They are all brewed very well to style, and even beyond style. We even liked the fruity Razz Wheat, and normally we don’t like fruity beers. Our scoring system gave an overall grade of a B+ to these beers, and we gave the Peanut Butter Cup Porter the obligatory A grade. (Yeah, it deserves it.)

The food was also very good, so kudos have to be given to the kitchen folks as well as the brewing group. This place would definitely receive a return visit from us when we’re back in the area again.
