Naturally I hit this place while I was in town on a semi-beercentric trip.

We didn't have any food, and our stay here was very short. We entered in the gift shop side. I browsed around here. I've been in the gift shop before when I went to buy my allotment of BA Blackout. It was expensive and over priced then and its expensive and overpriced now. Over $8 for a snifter, over $6 for a taster glass, over $1 for a coaster? $25 tee shirts? I mean c'mon, this ain't Disney Land.

I was told that I had a shot at Rackhouse, and honestly that was the only reason I came here. But alas, Rackhouse was gone. Just my luck.

The place is pretty nice, it seems to look very inspired by Cleveland's industrial history. The decor is distressed but up scale.

The staff seemed to not really care that we were there, wandering and gazing aimlessly. We stood right by the bar, in front of the hostess stand, for a few minutes with no one offering to help or even say hi.

We ate at a near by pub because rumors are that their food isnt worth the price.

I'll probably be back, certainly to buy some BA Blackout, but I wont rush here. I'll take my time at Fat Head's and Buckeye Beer Engine.

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.

While I can't rate the food, I can assure any potential visitor that the Holy Moses, Turntable Pils, and Dortmund Gold were absolutely delicious, and were great to have over a long conversation... I'm confident that if Washington operated over a couple bottles of Great Lakes, we wouldn't have quite so many problems with our government that we do...

Went here before a Cavaliers game to eat dinner and drink some beer. Restaurant provides a shuttle ride for $1/person to and from, which is a nice bonus. Beers on tap are just as good as what you can buy in a bottle.
