If the beers at Platform seem extra savory, that's because the powers that be at this Ohio City brewery don't try to keep pace with the top kitchens around town. Instead, they partner up with local chefs who focus on the grub to ensure that beer is Platform's No. 1 priority. Try a Platform Goon, New Cleveland Palesner or the clever-tasting Cleverly Named IPA, and you'll taste the magic a hyper-focused brewery can make.
