A local brewery for me. Can find their beers almost everywhere where I live, so naturally I've tried almost every beer I've seen by them. Most of them have been excellent. Dortmunder Gold is a personal favorite. They're always crafting new brews too. Definitely thankful for them.

This is a great spot. Love going into the basement pub, really makes you feel like you are drinking on hallowed ground. The selection of beer will suit almost any taste. The staff are friendly, and have always been knowledgeable and willing to help with beer selection.

This is the place that started it all back in the day here in Cleveland...Great food & beer, nice gift shop. Parking can be a challenging but worth the effort. If you have time visit Westside Market is neat to stop by?

Certainly has the vibe of dive bar. It’s not dirty or anything.. it’s actually really nice, but there are a lot of older dudes who were way too drunk on a Tuesday. Selection is fairly average.. stuff you can find at the store. Still, a staple of Cleveland’s beer scene, and worth a visit for historical purposes.

Beautiful wood bar in a cozy space lends it a warm vibe. Excellent food to pair with excellent beer.

Good service and friendly atmosphere. Food was average. Took a tour of brewery which was worth it.

Great Lakes Brewery has great beers across the board, huge seelction of regular rotation and a seasonal beer for every month. It will stand up to any brewery in the country!

Wonderful selections! Never thought I'd be saying great things about anything coming from the water of Lake Erie, but then I'm from Pittsburgh, so... We've tried several of the offerings from GLB, Co. and enjoyed every one more than several times. Our favorite is Dortmunder Gold Lager so far. I'm not much of a lager fan, but this is not your typical lager. While it's rich, it doesn't have the usual heaviness and it's great for a hot day! All in all, it's almost a perfect beer that goes great with a summer meal. Enjoy!

A good brewery located close to downtown Cleveland and very close to the West Market (which is worthwhile exploring). I wish I had spent more time there, but I had a prior engagement, never-the-less I did get to try a few of their beers (which I had never tried before).

This is a can't miss place. Sitting at the same bar John D. Rockefeller sat at and where Elliot Ness shot a hole in is a great experience. the basement bar has an hones old pub feel. the food is top notch and the service was excellent. If you are lucky enough to be in Cleveland, you must make this a priority.
