Market Garden Brewery

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.
