Cleveland: Brewery Tour with Tastings

2. Cleveland: Brewery Tour with Tastings

Enjoy a brewery tour through Cleveland's vibrant craft beer scene with a beer guide. Your craft beer adventure includes up to 12 beer samples, a pretzel snack, and VIP access to the production areas of 3 of the best local breweries. Start the tour with a possible visit to Brick and Barrel, founded in 2014 by owner and brewer, Karl Spiesman. Discover how this nano brewery was built brick by brick, and barrel by barrel - hence the name! Admire the old church pews and a blackboard bar top reclaimed from a defunct schoolhouse in the neighborhood. Next, you may visit another brewery such as Terrestrial Brewing. Learn about how a team of self-proclaimed hippies wanted a brewpub in Cleveland that focused on the taproom styles of the Northwest. Let the expert beer guides take you behind-the-scenes to show you the impressive keg-management system which hoists 150-pound kegs and perfectly positions them within the walk-in cooler. After that, take a visit to Great Lakes Brewing, built by 2 Irish brothers with limited brewing experience. Learn about how in 1986 when Patrick and Daniel Conway opened their fledgling operation, the odds were stacked against them. Fortunately, they surrounded themselves with a staff of passionate, knowledgeable people, and from the start committed themselves to bringing a sophisticated, diverse selection of craft beer to their home state.  Finally, you may enjoy a visit to Platform Beer, the Flagship location of what has grown into one of Ohio's most revered breweries. See how this business serves an ever-changing selection of styles including 20 house beers. With a 100+ seat tap room and patio, there is plenty of room for everyone.

We had such a nice time learning about the breweries and trying the different beers. Was relaxed and we felt safe. I would highly recommend this tour and our guide Hannah was informative and helpful and not at all overbearing.
