Photo of the Week: First Pour at Great Lakes Brewing Company

Although it is still technically spooky season, any Clevelander knows that mid to late October also means it’s time for Great Lake’s Christmas Ale. Some say it’s too spicy and others say it’s too sweet, but any craft beer aficionado knows that Christmas Ale from Cleveland’s original craft brewery is a must around the holidays. Bursting with sweet honey, crisp cinnamon, and ginger flavors, just a sip of GLBC’s Christmas Ale brings back happy holiday…

Hangout of the Week: Bookhouse Brewing (Ohio City)

Breweries, bars, and restaurants are often noisy and sometimes chaotic places. The sounds of music, multiple TV sets, dishes clanking, and the chatter of dozens of people often drowns out conversation, forcing you to lean uncomfortably close to someone just to be able to understand them. You might go the whole night without one meaningful conversation. Excessive noise and thumping basslines won’t be a problem at Cleveland’s latest brewery, Bookhouse Brewing (1526 W. 25th St.),…

Picture of the Week: Cleveland Skyline via Tremont Cleveland Sign

This week’s LOTL Picture of the Week is from a listener, Jacob Ockunzzi. Follow him on Instagram at @jacuzzi4. Jacob describes his inspiration for this picture, and the following photos, below: Cleveland may not have a night skyline like New York City or Los Angeles, but to me its skyline is spectacular. For about a year I have been into photography, and I have always loved taking photos of Cleveland during the day from places…

After months of anticipation, Fat Head’s brand new, massive beer hall has finally opened on 17450 Engle Lake Dr in Middleburg Heights.

Hangout of the Week: Terrestrial Brewing Company

As much as I love Edgewater Park in Cleveland, I’ve long bemoaned the fact it isn’t walking distance to any places to eat or drink. That changed, however, when Terrestrial Brewing Company (7524 Father Frascati Drive) in Battery Park opened its doors last year. The brewery, famous for its wacky beers, is about a five-minute walk from the beach if you take the tunnel behind the new beach house. Housed in an old battery factory…

Picture of the Week: Great Lakes Brewery Tour

This past weekend, part of the LOTL crew went out to iconic Great Lakes Brewing Company in Ohio city for their brewery tour. The tour is quite a deal: for only $5, you get a one-hour tour and four 7-oz samples of beer fresh from the tap. But for me, the most impressive part of the tour was the content.¬†Some brewery tours focus exclusively on the science and process of making beer, then you get…

Hangout of the Week: Harlow’s Pizza (Lakewood)

When I first walked past Harlow’s Pizza in Lakewood, me and my girlfriend assumed it was either a coffee shop or bar designed like a 50’s-era soda fountain. With its¬†glowing pink sign and curvy architecture, Harlow’s stands in stark contrast to the rest of the buildings on Madison Ave., and does’t exactly look like a pizza joint. But looks can be deceiving, and one day I decided to peak inside and I noticed it had…

Photo of the Week: Rocks at Edgewater Park

Imagine crashing waves, a warm breeze and toasty hot sand. These images probably invoke an image of a tropical vacation, but in this case I’m referring to our very own Edgewater Park beach in Cleveland. Sure, it’s not exactly a tropical bliss — the strange amount of trash, questionable water quality, and lack of seashells reminds us that we’re up north and not near the equator. But Edgewater Park has a truly enjoyable and aesthetically…
