This place is around the corner from the Great Lakes Brewing Company. It comes across as being a little trendy but still comfortable. The crowd was younger given the hip vibe of the place. The tap selection is on a chalk board behind the bar and is very impressive at first glance. The number of Belgians that they offer is a beer lovers dream. Sadly, they were out of the ones that I wanted to try. Especially since I stopped by this place specifically to have a St. Bernardus Abt 12 on tap. I had to settle for an Oak Aged Yeti which is still a good consolation prize. That was followed by a glass of Gulden Draak. The glassware selection is a nice touch. They are able to serve many beers in matching glasses. I would recommend stopping by this place for a nightcap after a nice dinner and tour at Great Lakes.

Great selection of Belgian and Belgian inspired beer, especially the tap selection. Not the ideal place for a non-Belgian fan. Food is well made, especially the house made sausage on the Big Board. Bartenders know their beer and their food, and are enthusiastic to talk about them. They do a good job of making suggestions to people not familiar with the beers they carry.

Went in around 2:00 PM on a Saturday. Really cool atmosphere, that mix of industrial, and modern. You weave through the tables to get to the bar, which is pretty large and spacious. Once at the bar, there were about three or four people behind the bar, and not really busy, but it took a couple minutes to be recognized. Friendly, but somewhat elitist. Looking through the beer selection, which was very nice, but kind of run of the mill. Nothing really knocked my socks off. The food menu was nice as well, but ordering the meat/ cheese/ vegetable board for $19 and getting not that much. Not saying it wasn't good, but 3-4 ounces of meat, 4-5 ounces of cheese, and a beet and a cocktail onion for $19 was a bit much. I did enjoy this place, but I was expecting something a bit more the way I hear people talk about it. I just feel it was a bit pricey for about average stuff.

Bier Markt is home to the first true Belgian-style beer house in the Cleveland area. The beer selection is what you would expect...Chimays, Trappistes Rochefort, Ommegangs, Duvel and so on alongside some typical Belgian fare such as Pommes Frites (which are outstanding and a must try). The atmosphere is generally low-key/laid back however the place gets loud and busy on Friday and Saturday evenings with a very diverse crowd. The beer selection, while vast, isn't changed up to often. They have weekly handle specials but for the most part, they stick with the same line-up. Service is good during moderately busy hours and they do fairly well keeping up on busy nights. In terms of value, food and most beers are reasonable, however, some of their high alcohol and rare beers are a little more pricey, but not outrageous. Overall, Bier Markt has a key to my heart because it was the place that I first experienced the Belgian-styles that I have come to adore. Its a great place for a date especially if its a quiet evening given their nice plush couches and comfy half-circle booths as well as the area surrounding the rear pool table. Be sure to check out Speakeasy, a cocktail lounge beneath the joint (the way you know it's open is by the chandelier that hangs over the stairwell that leads you to it..if its on, its open.) Cheers!!!

Bier Markt is a great value. They have a number of Belgian and domestic beers, many of which are on tap and all of which are very reasonably priced. A few days ago, I had Three Floyds Alpha King, St Bernardus Abt 12 and Bell's Christmas Ale all on tap plus a serving of pommes frites for 28 dollars. Their dipping sauces are pretty good but I've definitely had much better ones but the frites are still really tasty. Worth a visit if you're in the Cleveland Area and right next to Great Lakes Brewing Company and Bier Markt's brother restaurant Market Garden Brewery.

(Visited 07/2011): McNulty's is located in the Ohio City area around the corner from Great Lakes. The brewpub is located on W 25th and Market. Parking is typically scarce in the surrounding area.
The interior is large and somewhat divided, and has a comfortable feel. It boasts a long bar along the right side with table/booth seating throughout the space. There is a large chalkboard behind the bar listing current offerings.
McNulty's beers have a strong Belgian influence, with a lot of the more common beers from that country. All told there are around 15 taps with Duvel (Green), Hoegaarden, Chimay, Lindeman's, St. Bernardus and Ommegang on this list. A sampler is available. The bottled selection numbers around 50 again with an emphasis on the Belgian style. Breweries such as Ommegang, Duvel, Unibroue, Dupont, and Westmalle are present. Outside of Belgium they carry common domestic macro and microbrews.
Service was good on a relatively slow (at least compared to Market Garden) weekday evening. The bartender had a thorough knowledge of of the beer list and was attentive throughout my visit.
I did not have any food on my visit.
Overall this is a nice spot to hit for a solid Belgian beer menu in Cleveland.

Been here a couple times now, and headed back in 10 days. Bier Markt has good atmosphere- it's huge inside, and usually not too loud. There's also outdoor seating if you want to hang outside. Just around the corner from Great Lakes. The service has been good, but not great on my visits. It can, at times, be a challenge to get the bartender's attention- but it's not horrible. The selection is great- lots of Belgian beers, and a great selection of Belgians on draft. Never been disappointed w/ the drafts at all. Food is your typical pub fare, nothing outstanding. Value is pretty good, especially coming from Washington DC. This IS the place to go if you're in Cleveland and you love Belgian beer. Check it out- you won't be sorry!
