C 1947 West 25th St., Cleveland $$$
Market Garden Brewery has a beautiful building next to the West Side Market. They have an amazing patio, and lovely seating areas, including one in front of a big lovely fireplace. We went on a Saturday evening, right after the market closed, even with no reservations, we got a table in fifteen minutes. The music did not match the environment, it was terrible club music and loud loud loud. Food was good quality but poorly portioned for the price. I had a flight of four beers. It was brought to me in the most impractical contraption, a basket that held the two outer flights at an angle begging for a spill. As a person who loves a good strong porter, even more so if it has coffee in. I started with the Midnight Vorlauf (ABV 6.5) and was horrified that it tasted like I was drinking coffee grounds in beer. The Double Down Brown (ABV 10) and the Irishman’s Enforcer (ABV 10.5) did not fare better for me. A Nitro pour of the St. Emeric’s Stout (ABV 4.5) was drinkable. Not my best experience at a brewery.
