Cheers: I don't even know where to start. Busy Fri night, somewhat diverse crowd in age range. Dead Sat night due to the snow. Interesting comparison, to see how a place operates at capacity vs. basically empty. The staff didn't miss a beat. People in Cleveland actually make room for you to place your order, a rarity here in Buffalo. Chatted with lots of patrons who seemed suprised that we came from Buffalo to visit the brewery, but mostly happy that someone actually takes a vacation to Cleveland. 2 levels to drink: the somewhat trendy, tastefully appointed dark wooden bar area (I didn't even take the time to locate the bullet holes, that how much I was enjoying the beer) or the basement with exposed brick and beams. Both were interesting and full of interesting people. Sell beer to go. All of Great Lakes beers are amazing. Use appropriate glassware. Porter ice cream is out of this world, and I really don't like ice cream. Clam Chowder and Walleye Bites suggested. Totally worth the 4 hour drive.

Jeers: Left a raging snowstorm in Buffalo only to find ourselves in a raging snowstrom in Cleveland, apparently a freak occurrance down there. Severe lack of bathroom signage led to a moment of panic. Beer was so good we couldn't make it to the tour.
