For $5, you get a tour of the brewery, and tokens for samples of the beers on tap. The guide led us through the brewery and the brewing process, answered a variety of questions, including some rather technical ones asked by a member of the tour. There are three times when sampling is available - start and end in one... More

Cleveland in general has some of the best customer service we have ever received and the Great Lakes Brewing Company is no different! Our most recent visit was to watch Cleveland Indians play the Toronto Blue Jays in the ALCS. Decked in full Jays gear, the staff at both the restaurant and shop still gave us great service! We definitely... More

I cam here for the brewery tour (i've been to a few in the UK and was mainly here for a couple of free drinks) and I left with a real uplifted feeling (not just due to the free drinks). It's great to hear what Great Lakes has done for this area of Cleveland and gives you a different appreciation... More

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!
