Great Lakes

2516 Market Avenue, Cleveland, OH, 44113

Selling its beer across a growing region surrounding Ohio, this brewery has been an industry leader in tracking the quality of its beer on retailers’ shelves. Nonetheless, its brewing complex near the historic West Side Market always merits a visit. The original brewpub, established in 1988, sits across from the production brewery, which came online in 1998. Visitors are directed to the taproom’s striking Tiger Mahogany bar and shown bullet holes reputedly made by Eliot Ness. He, of course, was the “untouchable” Prohibition agent who brought down gangster Al Capone. The beer garden looks onto Ohio City’s Market Square.
