Like its name implies, the 800-square-foot Cleveland Brewery taps into the beer scene with a local identity. Owner and brewmaster John Fuduric gets the inspiration for many of his beers — which are brewed using a three-barrel electric system — from his Collinwood neighbors. The Cavotta’s Wheat ($6 for 16 ounces) is made with honey and basil from Cavotta’s Garden Center & Urban Farm, while the Cleveland Imperial Stout ($7 for 16 ounces) is infused with coffee from nearby Six Shooter Coffee.
But plan ahead — this hidden gem with an unassuming storefront is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day. Our Pick: A tribute to the immigrants of Cleveland’s Little Italy neighborhood, the popular San Giovanni Saison ($6 for 16 ounces) incorporates grapes from Collinwood Grape Co.
