We had lunch at the Great Lakes Brewery restaurant. Excellent food but a little expensive for the portion size.

A very informative tour and a beautiful party of the city. We reserved our spot on the tour and paid the nominal $5 charge using the easy reservation system on their site. The samples before, during and after the tour were well received. We visited the well stocked company store and took some of our favourites home with us. Since... More

My wife and I were on our way out of Cleveland and wanted to just stop by Great Lakes to say we had a drink from there. The bar itself is pretty nice but I was very intrigued with the downstairs area. I only briefly went down there to use the restroom but I wanted to explore down there. They... More

Step outside on a winter night with an awesome craft beer, the amber lager and dortmunder highly recommended. The tour is pretty good too but you can tell everyone is there for the beer.

Best craft beer choices. We took the brewery tour (Sara was our tour guide - reminded me of Melissa McCarthy, and a real hoot). Be sure to have the handmade pretzels and cheese and pretzel chicken. A definite stop while in Cleveland!

I booked this tour more for my husband. (I'm not a big beer fan) and he loved it! The tour is only $5 per person and lasts about 1 hour. You can sample 4 beers that are 7 oz pours. That alone is worth the $5! The tour is very informative and the guide kept it fun!

We stopped here after visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just in time for happy hour. They were very busy but we found a seat at the bar and people were very friendly, patrons as well as staff. I love that they had small beer glasses available for purchase as a pint of beer is just too much... More
