Great Lakes Brewpub is excellent, through and through. right across the street from a wonderful local market, the brewpub sits on a tree lined street with a beer garden and streetside seating outside. inside one will find a cozy bar atmosphere, but the real gem is the beer cellar in the basement.

basically a second bar in the old beer cellar, set alongside holding tanks and smelling of old dampness. furnished similar to an old german beer hall, with out-of-place LCD screens behind the bar, this place just reeks of brewery history.

quality is great. clean conditions, proper glassware, great beers, and great food.

service was great. friendly and knowing bar staff are willing to discuss beer and seem to love beer at least as much as the average BA.

selection was the only aspect that left anything to be desired. four standard offerings from the brewery and three seasonal offerings, two of which not available in bottles. the Big Black Smoke was the highlight of the visit for this BA.

food was above a standard brewpub in quality, with very unique offerings, and high quality as well. the shitake pizza is a must have.

overall, anyone in the Cleveland area should hit up this brewpub. a very authentic feel and some great brews, along with a kickass beer cellar and a great location all come together to make this a solid stop for a brew. cheers!

This is a mandatory stop for me any time I am anywhere near Cleveland. Not only do they always have a fantastic lineup on tap, but the food is just as good (they have a lamb shepherd's pie made with their Edmund Fitzgerald porter - mother of god!!!), and the brewery itself is a fun tour!
