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.

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.

They have a decent tap list (~15?) which includes several from their affiliated / house brewery, MGB: Market Garden brewery.

I had a very hoopy IPA, something with Citra, from MGB which was delicious. The rest of the tap list was solid, but I had to remain somewhat sober, and this was the third stop of the afternoon.

The assistant bartender / barback didn't know what he was talking about on several points, and answered several questions inaccurately, to me, and to others. 9he indicated that a MGB brew, Festivus (SP?) was a hoppy IPA, when in fact it was a winter warmer.) But he was super friendly about it. Fortunately the main bartender was knowledgeable and friendly.

Atmosphere is slightly upscale, but not pretentious.

Selection, like I said, is solid.

Didn't try food.

It's slightly spendy for Cleveland, but not over the top, and probably reflects the neighborhood.

Just around the corner from Great Lakes Brewing, which is closed on Sundays (BOO!)

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.

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.

Atmosphere: seemed pretty good. i didn't explore all they had to offer. but it had a nice vibe to it.

Quality: i didn't try any of their brews but they had quite a good taplist. (besides the fact that zombie dust ran out a day before)

Service: no real problems, it was a go to the bar to order place though. slight problem with the bills but no big deal

Selection: had some stuff i am not used to seeing since i am from michigan. Zombie dust was out and they had some from the bruery. those were good to see and they had a fairly wide variety

Food: the stoner fries were classic drunk bar fries and fried oreo's were good. seem like a decent pub food menu otherwise.

Overall: probably the best selection of non-homebrewed beers in cleveland that i saw. pretty cool beer destination to check out

We had one night in Cleveland, was told by friends in the know that this was a place to check out. Yes, they were right, was not disappointed.

Open and airy, very casual pleasant and comfortable sorta spot. Outdoor area for dining and imbibing in the rear.

They brew their own and have a nice guest tap list. We sat at the bar where the service was friendly, quick and more then "easy on the eyes" if you get my drift.

Burgers were mighty tasty. Gotta love a place that has an "acid trip" burger on the menu!

Great place to relax, watch the game, have a few pints and a tasty bite to eat. Go with your buddies, for a casual and fun date, not so much with the family/inlaws

Had a fun visit, I'd no doubt be a regular if I was local....

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.
