    Will be in the area in a couple weeks (mon-weds only)
    flying into Cleveland,
    out of Pittsburgh
    and visiting Cleveland, Lakewood, Avon Lake, Akron, and Donora PA.

    I've had Great Lakes and Fat Head Hntet IPA and I'm hoping to try Brew Kettle White Raja..,any tips on where to find (brewery or bottle shops) those or anything else I should be trying would be very helpful!

    Plenty of bottle shops in Lakewood / Cleveland / Akron area will have White Rajah, as well as grocery stores etc....pretty easy to find shelf beer in NE Ohio

    Would suggest stopping at Buckeye Beer Engine in Lakewood, Rozi's and many other joints on Detroit Ave

    You should visit Ohio City area (just west of downtown CLE) - W. 25th St - Great Lakes, Market Garden, Nano-Brew, Platform Brewing etc are all in the immediate vicinity

    Stop at Fatheads for sure if you can - either the BrewPub on Lorain in N. Olmsted or the Production Brewery / Taphouse in Middleburg Hts....

    Look on this site for guide to Cleveland / Akron beer attractions

    Cleveland -

    Akron -

    You could hit Hoppin' Frog's Taproom easily as well as Thirsty Dog (about 15 minutes apart in Akron) - mostly open in the evenings though

    Have fun and enjoy!

    Lot's to see and do and drink in NE Ohio!

    I'd stop by Roundabout, Brew Gentlemen, Draai Laag, and Fat Heads for sure.

    In Pittsburgh, for hoppy stuff, definitely the Brew Gents...and even though you said you had Fat Heads before, they seem to have a good bit of hoppy stuff rotating through their taps recently (in Pittsburgh, at least) probably worth another stop...
