This was one of our stops during a day of beer touring around the Cleveland area, and certainly our favorite. They opened in April of this year, so it's still a relatively new place. We walked in early on a Saturday night to a fairly hushed atmosphere which picked up as the evening went on. Really, a nice looking bar, half inside and half outside. 400 bottled beers are organized by style on shelves around the periphery of the bar available for on premise consumption or to take home. The bartender told me they have a wine cooler in the back that will chill any beer you select in about 8 minutes. There are also 8 rotating taps which are always changing, all available in pretty cool Lizardville growlers. They're good about updating their website and facebook page with their current selection, something I think that a lot of bars are pretty lazy about. The whiskey selection is incredible. If you happen to enjoy great whiskey as well as craft beer this place is pretty close to perfect.There are 100 different whiskeys to choose from. I was pleasantly surprised to find Stranahan's from Colorado on the menu, my sometimes elusive mistress. We all had a hard time getting over how awesome it was to be sipping whiskey while browsing their beer selection.
The staff was great. Very knowledgeable about both the beer and whiskey. They were extremely friendly and after learning my friend and I are new to the area sent us away with a solid list of other establishments in the Cleveland area they thought we would enjoy.
I really have nothing negative to say about Lizardville, even the prices were fair. The location is a bit odd, a little bit out of the way for those living closer to Cleveland, but it's certainly worth the drive.

Best craft beer bottle shop I have been to. The Beer Technicians are absolutely phenomenal and really know their stuff. Add to that a phenomenal selection of craft beer and what's not to like? I have also eaten here and the food is just as impressive as the beer. If you are looking for a five page menu, this isn't the place. However, if you are looking for a small menu that is done right, give it a shot. Great atmosphere, great beer and great people. Highly recommend.

I stopped in with a coworker while in the area on business. The atmosphere is authentic and welcoming from the first step in the door. They have the bottles displayed nicely in the front and a very inviting bar in the back. The bartenders are very helpful with some great recommendations. The fee for chilling and opening a beer to have there is pretty steep, especially if you're sampling a number of smaller beers, but the tap list is great with some unique options. We enjoyed several beers there and I bought some local IPAs to take home for my wife. It was well worth the visit.
