Cleveland Lunch & Beer

Cbusfoodie Jun 2, 2009 04:43 PM

I saw there was another thread on here that touched on some Cleveland spots but mainly dinner. I am looking for good lunch places downtown for a Saturday and/or Sunday (maybe Brunch) as well as good bars or restaurants with great beer selection. Any places with 20, 30, 50+ beers on tap? Thanks for any help!

    Downtown is far too limiting for this queries. Many others, too.

    You should go to the Buckeye Beer Engine. Great hamburgers. Best in the city. All the other food I've had there has been good, too. I've never been to their brunch but I'd really like to. I don't pay attention to it so I'm not sure about the quantity or quality of their beer selection, but I think they have a good reputation for it. You can review it yourself:

      Buckeye beer engine (in near by Lakewood) is a micro lovers dream. they usually have a mainstream beer like Schlitz for giggles, but the rest are US micros and imports on draft, and nice range of styles.I think they are partial to hoppy though. If you like belgian beers you may want to check the Bier Markt . I think they are open Sat for lunch (check first) and fathers day for brunch. There are not 50 on tap, but several. http://www.bier-markt.com/

      Melt also in Lakewood has many beers, great food. They probably have a dozen plus excellent taps. http://www.meltbarandgrilled.com/menu...

      The Winking Lizard has a great beer selection as well as good burgers and wings, but most of their beers are in bottles.

        ditto THE HARBOR INN as far as massive by the bottle selection.

        I've been to Fat Fish Blue on a Saturday for lunch. Quite good.

          Also the recently opened Fatheads in North Olmsted might be good.

            I decided to do a little reconnaissance on Fat Head's. I had a very good pulled pork sandwich and the smokehouse wings. The smokehouse wings were fantastic.

            Fat Fish Blue was fun, and Bar Cento had good (not great) pizzas with a huge beer selection.

              while not open for lunch, i might also recommend the Tremont Tap House. It has 24 beers on tap and many more in bottles. The dinner menu is upscale bar food. And, they also do Sunday brunch, which I hear is great - though I've never been.
