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.

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.

I stopped by to try a flight of beers. Overall the experience was good. Small with a laid back atmosphere. I didnt realize that the owner of Nano Brew also owns market Garden brewery. I think Nano Brew is a kind of test kitchen for the bigger brewing system they have over at Market Garden. The staff is friendly and I beleive you can bring your bike in for a tune up.

High ceilings and a lot of natural sunlight. Good selection of beers on tap. Wide variety of styles with two or three good examples of each. The beers brewed at the pub are solid as well.

The menu may be a little limited, but there is no reason to get anything other than a burger. Food and beer prices very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit after a trip to the West Side Market.

Transcribed from notes dtd Boxing Day, H, 26 Dec 2013.

This seemed to be a logical next stop after Market Garden, especially since it is the same owner and brewer, plus it is on the same side of the street and in the same block. I dig how far Kleveland has bounced back in the last decade!

A short storefront with its opening in the centerline, it had a laminated blonde wood semi-shuffleboard table-like high table directly to the right of the entry. Similarly designed high tables with chairs lined the left wall. The "L"-shaped laminated blonde wood bar ran halfway down the right wall, past the aforementioned table. The brewhouse sat aft of the bar, behind wrought iron, making it just that much more impressive. All of the way aft on the left side was a spiraling wrought iron staircase for brewer's uses, from which was suspended a Dorothy-like bicycle, just before the lavs, off to the right. All of the way aft, a pair of doors led to picnic tables with heaters and a secondary bar. Just as before, there were no takers on this day.

Service: Man, this was a fun joint! The staff was friendly, the customers were amicable and we joked and palyed around until my amicable departure.

Love this place. They have a really nice selection of house drafts as well as guest taps and bottles. The wife and I stop in for a beer pretty frequently. The food is nothing special; basic pub-grub. Trivia nights on Tuesdays are a blast. There is a really cool patio in the back, which is a great place to grab a beer when the weather is nice.
