Just finished up a tour of all the Breweries in Cleveland and Fat Heads was easily the best in the area. The beer, food and service was tremendous. The building was very clean with lots of room for gathering. Some of the best beer in Ohio with a very big selection. Could very well be the best and nicest in the state.

Leah and I had a very good experience here. Half off their beers for happy hour (4-6). 38 beers on tap. 15 of theirs. Fairly large seating area with high ceilings. Food selection is above average. Had the brewben sandwich. Yum!

A huge brewpub with a cool history and a great venue. Huge sandwiches, outstanding beers and exceptionally friendly service. The brewery is behind the glass walls, so the beer is always fresh.

Decent beer but not excellent. Stopped on our way through Cleveland on a two week long beer-cation last summer. Just didn't stack up against the other greats.

Food is awesome. Beer selection was okay; they had lots of IPAs on tap; wished they had a lighter stout the day I went. Love this place.

Awesome beers, great sandwiches, and solid service. Had the Hop JuJu and Imperial Red, both pretty exceptional. Big variety of their own beers and guest beers on draft.

The size of the bar is pretty amazing. They have an expansive beer selection, including some local brews--some of which could even be considered rivalries--plus there's always something in a firkin. Their food combos are simple but are large, and they offer some unique takes on NE Ohio dishes. The problem with this place, and too many other breweries lately, is they want to cater to everyone and allow families--the worst part being small children, and lots of them. A bar or brewery is no place for rugrats, especially when it often consists of half the place. Sure it may seem great for business but they'd be doing good with an age limit as well. When a restaurant is this large and there's a line out the door on a weekday in the middle of winter, kick out the kids. Adults need their own place to chill.

Visited the Middleburg Heights location. Pretty cool setup with the tanks being about 20 feet from your tables. Good luck finding the place. Its actually in a giant warehouse with only a small sign to show you its the right drive.

Didn't try the food, but seriously, the selection, quality was amazing, possibly the best I've experienced! Tried an experimental dipa that was the best I've had, seriously, and I've tried A LOT.... Will definitely stop in whenever I'm nearby.....
