    I live in the Northeast Ohio area. Does anyone have any suggestions for things that are brewed locally? I have tried much of the Great Lakes catalog, but I'm wondering if there are any "local secrets" that are worthy of a taste. Any suggestions?

    Fat heads, brew kettle, hoppin frog, nano brew, Willoughby brewing, thirsty dog for breweries.
    Simones, rozis, north coast, lizardville, beverage warehouse, ross's deli, sams for bottles.
    Deagans, Tremont taphouse and world of beer for taps.

    I live in NE Ohio as well. Erik's Grocery Bag, Acme Grocery Stores, and 101 Bottles are some other decent bottle shops. I believe there is a new brewery called Portside and possibly another one around the Akron area, but I don't know the name. A meadery in Canton Ohio is also starting to make beer. I can't think of anything else that hasn't been mentioned now.

    Great, I haven't been able to find a place that sells decent beer anywhere where I live. Thanks for the replies!

    If you're on the Eastside, Save-on Tobacco and Red Wine and Brew are places you must shop for beer.
     
  7. Brewkettle has a worthy tap selection, plus $3.75 house offerings during happy hour.

    Oh dear God no. That place is where beer goes to die. More of a beer museum than a beer store.

    I've seen plenty of good beers there that were just fine...but Save-on is my Eastside go-to

    Save-on is really close to where I live. What is their selection like?
