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

Husband is into craft beer so this was a must while in Cleveland. Had dinner outside on a Monday night. Good food, nice atmosphere and they had a great singer, Thor Platter (I think I have the name right) who was excellent and did a nice variety of tunes.

I'm in Cleveland on business and went my first night in town. I ended up back there for lunch again today because of how much I enjoyed the food. The black and bleu burger was to die for. Juicy and delicious! The mashed potatoes were so flavorful and the service superb! The other night I had the pretzel chicken which... More

The tour is great and the education is terrific. Bring all your brewing questions cuz they have all the answers. Did you ever really understand all those brew buzz words? Well, they bring them to life.

Located in a beautiful part of town near the market, the Great Lakes Brewing Company is a rustic building with loads of seating including an outside patio. The beer was pretty good but the food was excellent. Made from local ingredients gathered from the locale market nearby, everything we tried was epic. Not sure the next time I'll be in... More

Yes, this was a promo tour for the Great Lakes Brewing company but was much better than expected!! We received tokens for some free drinks but also learned tons about the history of the city, prohibition, prostitution, beer running in pipes under the streets, how beer is made, growth of the small brewing industry and had some fun doing it....

This is one of the places you have to go if you are In Cleveland. Their sandwiches are great and it's a nice place to hang out with friends.
