My son visiting from Virginia is what we call a beer snob. He really enjoyed the sampling of the beers offered. Lovely outdoor seating. A very nice ending to a wonderful day.

The tour of the brewery is free but you must sign up since there is limited number per tour. Our guide was one of the lab tech and she was friendly and informative. It is a fun tour with sampling of 2 of their beer flavors. Fun and tasty way to learn more about local microbrew.

I'm a big fan of Great Lakes! I've done the tour several times and it's always interesting. My wife had not been in a brewery tour. Proud that one of the top micro-breweries in the country is in our own Cleveland, OH. Definitely a must stop if you are in Cleveland.

I went April 2011, but I wanted to offer this review. If you're into beer or into manufacturing then you'll enjoy the tour. You'll learn about the art and science behind brewing and see the equipment that brews the beer. You'll also learn about the history of the brewery. This is a fairly large brewery so it'll take some time... More

The brewing company offers one hour free tours. You sign up for these in their gift shop. Take the tour before going to dinner. We went to dinner and paid $1.50 of sample glasses of their different beers. Then when we went on the tour we had the opportunity to "purchase" 2 sample glasses of any of the beers. We... More

Met friends here for dinner on a Thursday. Seated in the indoor/outdoor area. Perfect atmosphere. Our waitress was good and thorough. Food was good pub fare

Went here as an out of towner before and Indians game, and had a nice time. Very cool place, great food (we had the pulled pork with homemade tots) and the beers were excellent. We also took the "Fatty Wagon" a 1$ shuttle over to the game, which would bring you back there after if you'd like too.

I was with two friends from Brazil in a business trip, and after reading good coments about this place, we dicided to try, even with the snow storm outside. And There was no regreat. The beers are excelent, specially the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter. And for the complte service, the burguer was also very good.

After visiting the West Side market, and sniffing through Penzy's spices, a visit to the Great Lakes Brewing Company's souvenir shop is just the ticket. Although being a dedicated wine drinker, when traveling with a wife who is partial to the bubblies, I often revert to local beers for my lone pleasure. Great Lakes is one of Cleveland's better known... More
