I had lunch with family. The food is excellent and you have your choice of beers brewed. On site. It can get busy on weekends so you might have to wait for a table. But you will not be disappointed.

The restaurant was pretty cool. The decor and fireplace made the experience exciting for me. I order mussels and a black/blue burger, as well as the Christmas Ale. The good was good, but the locally brewed beers are what you come for. You can taste most of them for 25¢ each.

We took a tour of the brewery and were greeted by a very entertaining tour guide. He told some pretty cheesy jokes but was very knowledgeable and was able to keep everyone's attention. Although the tour is free, you have to make reservations online on advance to help make the tour run smoothly and the groups aren't very large. We... More

We had lunch here and the food was very good. My husband is a big beer lover so of course he had a beer flight. After lunch we took the brewery tour which was about 1hr. It was pretty neat and the guide was very knowledgable about the building and the beer process.

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
