Ah...my second visit to the Winking Lizard...the first being back in 2002 during my craft beer obsession infancy! In all honesty, it looks like the place hasn't changed much! You can enter from either side of the building...it is a bit of an odd triangle shape...there is a small bar at the apex of the triangle and a larger (but still pretty small) eating area at the base. The décor is what you would expect in a neighborhood sports bar...low lighting, lots of TVs and wood.

The beer selection is pretty decent...they have a nice bottle list that is available for take-out. There are coolers behind the bar that house the bottles (some of which are hidden behind others and wine). Not sure on the exact numbers, but I would guess about 100 bottles and 20 or so drafts. Lots of local and domestic craft available. The imports were not strongly represented though.

The bartender and hostess were very friendly and helpful. They even offered for me to join a "world of beer" tour (or something along those lines).

If you are in the downtown area of Cleveland, this place is worth checking out for sure!
