Stop #415 on my world brewery tour.

Great historic atmosphere and a world-class list of guest taps.

Amusing to take a look at the roughly 10 x 10 cage of the nano-brewery. Not sure I saw a way the can control fermentation temps in the plastic ferment tanks.

Lots of TVs and beautiful people.

Now for the beer. Like their bigger Market Garden Brewery, I find it hard to believe a place can open in the shadow of GLBC and have marginal beers. I got a flight which included an ok kolsch and a porter that had a distractingly low body to it.

I'd certainly come back for the guest taps and the atmosphere. For exceptionally well-made house beer, I'd stick with Great Lakes.

My folks and I were in town for 24 hours before heading to Canton for the Hall of Fame induction ceremony and stopped in at a couple places. This was one of them. They also had probably the best beer I've had all year here. A dry-hopped marzen that they had brewed a single cask of. The beer was hand pumped from the cask that had been resting at room temperature. It was perfect. A little nutty. A little toffee. Well balanced and wonderfully complex. The bartender was friendly and informative, pointing us to a few other breweries in the area. He was fairly knowledgable of the brews he was serving up. The selection was a little give and take. I think they had maybe 5 of there own brews on tap and about 30 or so of everyone else's beers. Though they were good brews. Oberon from Bell's. Some Founders. Left Hand and Great Divide. Boulevard and many more. The place was a little empty and my mother was just dumbfounded at the people ordering Corona's but it was a fun, open environment to consume several awesome brews. We didn't eat but I vaguely remember there being a food menu.

God that Marzen was the best...

Very nice vibe. Great attentive bartender. Great beer selection of house, local and guest brews. In an area saturated with breweries and craft beer bars this place stood out to me.

The food is amazing. The beer list is decent and they have a couple of their own brews on tap and they are pretty good. The service was horrible. Actually, horrible would be a step up. Not only was the waitress inattentive, she was downright rude. When I ultimately had to track her down to pay she got very mouthy and I ended up asking for the manager. And it was't busy at all a few tables and maybe three people at the bar. Do try the food, but don't plan on getting any service.

I checked this place out for the second time before a Gladiators game. The interior of the building is brick with some iron decor. The bar is along the right wall as you walk in. They had about 18-20 beers on tap with two being in house. I tried the hefe which was okay. The place was not that busy, but it was two in the afternoon.

I ordered the schnitzel. It was a tasty dish. It came with German potato salad. My buddy ordered the sliders which he seemed to enjoy. There is a small patio out back. The interior of this place reminded me of the Map Room in Chicago a little bit.

The service was good, but there would have been no excuse not to be considering the meager crowd. It prefer the other establishments in the area i.e. Great Lakes, Market Garden, and Bier Market, but this place is definitely worth checking out. Ohio City is a great area of Cleveland to explore.
