The brewery scene is big in Cleveland — so as you’re touring suburbia, be sure and check out at least a few of these local go-tos.
#1. Fat Head’s Brewery (North Olmsted and Middleburg Heights)
With two locations in town, you can easily add a stop to this award-winning brewery during your town tour. Fat Head’s is known for Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale but they have an incredible selection for every type of beer drinker.
If you’re looking for a bite to eat, Fat Head’s also offers a full menu of wings, sandwiches and other pub grub.
#2. Cornerstone (Berea)
This laid-back neighborhood favorite is a great place for lunch. The menu includes crowd-pleasers like pizza, burgers, salads and, like any good brewery, a giant pretzel. On draft, you can expect a variety of German and American-style beers.
On sunny days, the front patio is the place to be. Order your drink and find a spot to kick back.
#3. Sibling Revelry (Westlake)
If Westlake is on your list, be sure to check out Sibling Revelry. This community staple welcomes kids and pups and often hosts events, like trivia nights and live music. With a beer menu boasting 20 options, it may be hard to decide what to sip. If you’re around on a Tuesday go for the Taco Party beer which is paired with a featured taco.
Looking for a gluten-free brew? Sibling Revelry has you covered.
#4. Railroad Brewing Company (Avon)
With board games, themed trivia, food trucks and live music, there’s always something going on at Railroad. The beer garden is dog-friendly and a great place to sit and relax after a long day of town tours.
Go for a flight if you want to try a variety of the rotating beers they have on tap.
#5. Crooked Pecker (Chagrin Falls)
Crooked Pecker is a relaxed brewery in Chagrin Falls with a great outdoor space where dogs are welcomed. Check their Facebook every week for an overview of the upcoming menus which often include BBQ and burgers alongside their craft brews.
Keep an eye out for their events, too. This space hosts vinyl nights and can releases on occasion.
#6. Great Lakes Brewery (Cleveland)
Check out Great Lakes Brewery for a true Cleveland experience. While it’s located in downtown Cleveland, not the suburbs, this iconic spot is a can’t miss for anyone moving to the area. They offer tours, craft beer classes, trivia and live music. Plus, the outdoor patio is just a great spot to sit and soak in the atmosphere.
Visiting in the fall or winter? Don’t miss their beloved and award-winning Christmas Ale.
#7. Lager Head Smokehouse (Medina)
If BBQ is your thing, you’re going to love Lager Head. They make hickory-smoked meats in-house which pair perfectly with their microbrews. When there’s a game on, Lager Head is a favorite spot to cheer on the Browns, Guardians or Cavaliers.
Find a spot in the beer garden when the weather is nice. But if you’re looking to escape the cold, locals know their beer cheese soup is the best way to warm up.
