Great Lakes is a quintessential Cleveland brewery experience. The craft beer legend continues to thrive, with loads of people in Bernie Kosar jerseys and big-city transplants coming to drink pale ales while watching the home team get whupped. Their beer list has tried-and-true options including the Eliot Ness amber lager, smooth just like the legendary Prohibition enforcer, along with limited-run drafts that nod to Cleveland football, such as the crisp Interstate Tailgate pilsner. They even use their beer in the food—wings slathered in a BBQ sauce get an added tang from the Edmund Fitzgerald porter, and a slightly sweet bratwurst is made slightly malty thanks to Dortmunder gold lager.
