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.

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.

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.
