A couple weeks ago, hubs and I stumbled across a little gem here in Cleveland. He had read about Portside Distillery and, since we had a free Saturday afternoon, decided to pop in and learn a little about Cleveland's newest brewery and distillery. What a glorious afternoon!
We sampled the smoky Rachbier and the 216 dry-hopped ale while B played a little foosball. Portside has opened up their Sampler Room, while working out the plans for their forthcoming restaurant. We sat around a table, flipped through the architectural plans for the Flats, and enjoyed the simplicity of a damn fine beer on a Saturday afternoon.
Check them out and, by all means, spend an afternoon chatting them up, learning about the beers, and enjoying a simple, carefree afternoon supporting a Cleveland-independent. You'll be glad you did!
