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

I love Great Lakes beer, so I was excited to go on the Free Brewery tour. I'll start by saying that this was my first ever brewery tour, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Our tour guide didn't really know much about the actual making of the beer. We really only got to peer into the rooms where the... More

Went on a Saturday night so it was very busy. Went to the pub on the lower level while we waited and the wait went by quickly. Beers were excellent as was our appetizer. Dinner was nothing out of the ordinary but very good. Atmosphere was fantastic and we had a great time. There is even a shuttle to take... More

Pretty cool area, merchandise for sale if you really love the place that much. My dad loves the beer! I enjoy the pretzel chicken, super delicious! Nice area to be in and you can see other things while on your way over to Great Lakes!
