After leaving Bier Markt, I walked across the street too this place. A modern and industrial decor, with two bars and an intense growler filler. Above each bar were signs that looked like they got them from American Pickers. They had 100 of their own beers and 10 guest taps. The bartenders were quite attentive and nice. Looking at the menu, more my speed. I did not eat, but looking at the plates that came out, it looked good. All the beers were nice, and a nice variety. The only two complaints I have is that I did not come here first, and the staff was quite hipster, but I can deal with that.

Small place but surprisingly good beers. Large selection. Food was great. Friendly staff. Their Citramax was so good I went to a local store the next day to purchase and take home as I was visiting from out of town.

I've only been to th Market Garden once but I already love Market Garden. They are located on the site of the old chicken vendor. Back in the early 60's I would cringe when my mom would stop over there with me in tow. I couldn't stand to see the chickens getting slaughtered.

Now they serve great beer there. Their own products are first class and they had great guest taps too. The food and service were outstanding. The 25th street area around the West Side Market is paradise for beer livers - er, I meant lovers. Visiting this area is something fun to do in Cleveland year round.

February in Cleve-the-land. Post, well, you know where we started, do we need pretend otherwise? I mean, really, we’re right around the corner from Fitzgeraldtown (won’t you take me to?), how can you not kick it off with a freshie? Having gotten out and ventured all the way around the corner, this one’s got 3 cops out front, wondering if they weren’t expecting me...

Rounded ‘L’ shaped wet laminate topped wood bar with a wood panel base & foot box; and seating for 2 dozen+ on hightop chairs. 2 towers of 12 with mad logo handles along the wraparound bar, and a 12 tap tower on the bar back over cupboard space below. Booze countered, shelved glassware over mirrored panels, and flats above with tap list pieces showing beer, style, & ABV. Flats over the bar. Wrath of Khan Genesis Project growler (golbi) apparatus for the filling of.

Off white walls with windows, tall, vertical, & narrow up front, and pieced wood wall play on both ends. Slat wood floors, and a black ceiling with noise reduction boards, a phat chunk of ductwork, & spinny fans. Clustered mix & matched candle bulb chandeliers, mounted wall lamps, the giant ‘BEER’ marquee sign over the bar, and spots where need be.
A dozen and a half hightops off the bar, booths to the side, and shorty low boys along the perimeter. A pretty sizable room to the rear curtained off just now with a straight bar and hightops as far as I can see (from the entrance to the room, anyway), and some kind of snow covered pen out back.

14 taps (Retro Hippo, 10%, Barleywine; Prosperity Wheat, 6%, Hefeweizen; Progress, 5.5 %, German Pils; Citramax, 6.7%, IPA; Midnight Vorlauf, 6.5%, Coffee Porter; Friar Power, 8.7%, Belgian Tripel; Chinook Strike, 5.5%, Pale Ale; Wallace Tavern, 8%, Scotch Ale; Illuminator, 8.5%, Dopplebock; Particle Accelerator, 9%, Imperial Rye Pale Ale; Boss, 5%, Amber Lager; #Kolsch, 5%; Viking, 5.5%, Pale Ale; St. Emeric’s Stout, 4.5%, nitro Dry Irish Stout), + 10 guest taps including Oskar Blues 10 Fidy & Great Divide Hercules, goods from Fatheads, Boulevard, Heavy Seas, Humboldt, & 4 String, and cider & ginger beer. Had the Progress (solid Pils), Citramax (nice IPA), and the Boss (tasty Amber, good balance, nice malt backbone). Pretty good range overall. I would have liked to have gotten at the dopple, both pale ales, and the kolsch.

Foodwise, I could have slammed the coriander crusted yellow fin tuna tacos, or any of a bunch of other things (I want!), but it’s later than food is happening. See, now it’s politics, and midnight on a Friday. Dark and kind of clubby, at this hour at least. Candle bulbs of orange shimmer in my head, spinning. I really need a day of not starting somewhere else and seeing the scene. I think I may have solicited the best breakfast skinny from the cops, how soon is now?

A popular and spacious hangout, there are a few separate rooms and an outdoor beer garden that is frequently hopping busy, even in the snow. Service is a mixed bag--sometimes they are knowledgeable, sometimes not.

Selection is pretty wide, with a nice variety of their own brews, as well as a good variety of guest taps. I've never been impressed with any beer MGB has brewed, however.

Although the menu sounds enticing and unique, the food has been underwhelming every time I've gone, being a little cold, or soggy, generally pumped out of a likely burnt out and disinterested kitchen.

V-This place is pretty good sized and located in a cool area of town near the West Side Market (like right next door to the Market). There is a nice patio and lots of tables spread through a few rooms. The crowd was younger when I visited for lunch on a Saturday in late May.

Q-The house-brewed beers that I tried (a pils, a wheat, and an IPA) were solid, if not spectacular. The guest taps were above-average offerings from the likes of Bells and Left Hand. Solid.

Ser-Our server was friendly and she could answer questions about the beers she was selling. Service was maybe a bit slow, but nothing awful.

Sel-There was a good number and variety of Market Garden beers on tap. The selection was seasonally appropriate with more wheat beers and lagers on tap than you might find in December, but they also had an RIS if you were interested. The guest taps were a nice touch. I also saw a few bottles on the list.

F-My lunch was OK, but not great. I polled my lunch companions and received similar reports. Typical brewpub food.

O-A nice place with some tasty beers and a fun, Cleveland vibe.
