Stop # 336 on my world brewery/brewpub tour.
Visited in the late evening for dinner with a coworker who order what turned out to be a massively delicious piece of carrot cake as an appetizer. May have been the highlight of the visit.
Second attempt at visiting Maumee. The first time my beer buddy and I were denied on a Saturday afternoon which I thought was odd to be closed at a time like that.
It's located in a large historic brick building in a "quiet" part of downtown Toledo. Not much going on in the area but was quite busy on this Thursday night. Nice view of the vintage brewing gear and and plenty of breweriana to take in as part of the atmosphere.
Took a while to get my first round of samplers (as well as the carrot cake). Lots of bartenders but they all appeared to be chatting up patrons sitting at the bar.
Beers I went with...
Blood Orange Hefe (sounds better than it is)
Blitzen (leftover holiday ale with cinnamon on glass rim)
Rye 2 x IPA
Dry Irish Stout (best beer of the bunch)
Chocolate Cherry Porter (complete with cherry sprinkles)
The beers were mostly average and I'm still not sure how I feel about the cinnamon and sprinkles as special effects on my beer. Samples were $.75 and $1.00 which was nice.
We also split a pizza which was pretty good.

The brewpub/restaurant has a lot character. It is set in the second floor an old 19th Century hotel that also houses several other businesses, including a steakhouse, pastery shop, pub, restaurant and brewery. Each of these are very distinctive. It also contains a wonderful collection of beer memorabilia in the Toledo Brewing Hall of Fame & Museum. The glassed-in copper colored mash tun and kettle are the defining features of the pub. The Tap Room (bar) on the main floor (second floor) also has a mixed old world new world character with brick walls and new wood tables and chairs both raised and regular height.. The wood bar is located on the far wall with a large selection of spirits and booze in front of a large mirrored wall. They serve only Maumee Bay beers with 11 taps flowing, some regular, others seasonal.
Most of the beers are very good. For food, the specialty of the house is pizza, baked in a wood fired oven. The menu is pretty full featured and diverse, since it is adjoined by at least 2 resturants. I have sampled many items from the menu and found the food to be good but not great. The prices are very reasonable and I highly recommend this place for a good drinking and dining experience.
