Best Bar that Feels like a College Garage

Brick & Barrel

Staff Pick

So, we'll count B&B as something around the 374th brewery to open in Cleveland in the past year — we're not complaining! — and it's among the most unique. It's small, by design, and sequestered down on Columbus Road, which is accessible for the first time in forever now that the bridge is reopened. Brick & Barrel has but one small bar that seats about 12, a couple of tables, a couch and a pinball machine. The rest of the facility, which isn't quartered off with walls or anything, is the brewing operation itself, with tanks and beakers and whatever else the magicians that make beer actually need to make beer.
