Situated across the river from the main area of downtown Cleveland, and easily located off Carnegie Ave, across from the West Side Market.

This review will focus just on the brewpub facility itself, as I did not go on the tour of the brewery. I just had an hour or so to kill for lunch.

The building itself is old, and I do not know the history of it, but it is completely imaginable to envision a brewery being there for quite a long time.

Front bar area, with dining areas of to the sides. Downstairs seating and a smaller bar as well. Nice warm, old world feeling.
Decor comprises artifacts from the industrial age of brewing. Our table had a scale used for measuring barley and/or hops.

They had six tap selections that day. I ordered the Blacklout Stout, and Conway Irish Ale. The others included a Barleywine, and IPA, Lager, Porter, and an Amber Ale.

The Blackout was excellent, but I found the Irish ale lacking. My stout was served in a small tulip glass, which I found nice, but it was served too cold.

The food was standard pub grub, with slight gourmet twists. also, some decent vegetarian options.

Service was quick and attentive.

It was a nice comfortable stop that day. I would go back the next time I find myself in Cleveland. A "must" on any beer directed tour of Ohio.
