I'm finally getting around to a review of GLBC after my third visit over a roughly seven year time span.
The most recent visit was on a very busy Saturday early afternoon when lots of stuff was going on in the surrounding area - charity walk and a street fair directly in front of the brewpub. We had to wait 30 minutes for a table for six and the service was a bit off which I'm not factoring in to my overall experience.
Great, old historic building near the Market so you could make this a half day's visit. For such a large, multi-level building, the bar is rather small.
The beer selection is mostly what they offer in bottles with the exception of maybe one or two. They had a "cellar" Czech pilsner and a smoked ported on the menu. Neither of them had an official logo or artwork so I assumed they were not part of the regular lineup. Both were excellent.
The food has a local, organic, and sustainable emphasis on it. Many of their sources are listed on the back of the menu and I suspect come from the market next door. We all enjoyed our meals and beer and I would continue to return to GLBC when in the Cleveland area.
