With its patio overlooking the Cuyahoga River and the Main Avenue Bridge, Collision Bend is the Flats hot spot you saw popping up on your Instagram all summer. But when the weather cools, the 15-barrel brewery is worth more than a social media follow.
Brewmaster and Great Lakes Brewing Co. descendant Luke Purcell has impressed with a range of styles from the blood orange American Wheat Lake Erie Sunset ($6.50 for 16 ounces), named after partner Julian Bruell, to the C-Town IPA ($6.50 for 16 ounces).
Our Pick: The refreshing Lake Erie Sunset ($6.50 for 16 ounces), a blood orange American wheat ale, is perfect for a hot day on the patio or a dreamy summer escape on a cold January evening.
