Located in downtown Cleveland. My wife and I made a trip up here from Willoughby on a Saturday afternoon to check the place out, and the place was jumping. There was some sort of street fair taking place out side, complete with craft-booths and belly dancers, and the outside seating was pretty packed.

It actually took us a bit of doing to find the place -- we initially confused the brewpub, which is on Market, with the brewery itself, which is only a block or so over.

Once inside the correct building, we found a spacious, tastefully decorated restaurant. The crowd was mixed -- some younger folks, but mostly families. The food menu was alright. Mostly standard pub-fare, but with enough interesting variations to keep it interesting. I had a blue cheese bacon burger, which was quite tasty.

The beer selection was decent, but only one "non-standard" beer was on tap while I was there. I had a glass of the Anniversary Belgian ale, and paid $10 for both the beer and a very attractive commemorative glass. The beer itself was decent, but I was especially impressed by their Porter and their Dortmunder Gold. The waitstaff didn't seem to know a whole lot of beer, but my experience was limited to just 1 waiter, so who knows.

Family-friendly with a good atmosphere in a location with lots else to do. Recommended!
