UNIQUE EVENTS & live Music
We have a cool rotating schedule of unique events in Waldorf Beer Hall – our vintage rental space. We aim for at least 3 community-based events a week – such as: free live music Sundays (The Duck Island Bootleggers, The New Soft Shoe), Sunday potluck (food + music + beer ) Story Club (open mic for true stories), Pop Cleveland (a comedy quiz show) and Yoga (channel your inner yogi) to name a few. NEW this Fall, we will be hosting local “Non-Profit Tuesdays” – which means FREE use of our Hall (host up to 100 people). Our Facebook events page is up to the minute with the latest reason to get out of the house.
hand crafted BREWS
With a daily rotation of 7 to 8 handles there is something for everyone's palate. Pull up a chair in our brew pub and enjoy a hand-crafted FCB brew or take our brews to go in our 32 oz. little growlers of (brewed) love. We specialize in Euro-style brews that are well-balanced and traditional. However, we do like to get creative – such as our Cherry Sour Ale and our duck-rabbit coffee stout collaboration. Never bottled, always fresh. Our brews are brewed in limited batches – so get it while the gettins' good!
Our RECLAIMED Tap room
Step inside our 40-seat tasting room and brewhouse – thoughtfully designed and constructed from reclaimed materials. Pull up a seat at the bar featuring a wooden top that was a pew in a former life and indulge in a handcrafted FCB beer. Check out historical touches like the vintage wood coolers and old school brewery memorabilia; and of course get a view of our brew system. Cheer on hometown favorites – the Browns, Indians and Cavs on our big screen (though not historically accurate that can be overlooked for CLE sports). And don't forget to look up...the timber frame constructed space from the 1900s is one of a kind piece of historic Cleveland. And if Jay – the biggest history buff ever – is around, ask for a tour!
our waldorf hall
Bring the party...as in wedding, baby and birthday – the sky is the limit – here! Step back into time as you enter our charming vintage and inviting 5,000 square foot rental hall adjacent to our brewery tasting room. Host your next small gathering, large party, group meet-up or corporate function – we host them all – from local community events to private parties. Whatever the event – our old-school space provides an inviting background. Interested? Fill out the form on the Rental Hall page to learn more and reserve.
our ATLANTIC BEER GARDEN
Mosey on out and relax in our beer garden that is the oldest in the city, and possibly the state. Newly restored – tearing down an old house on the lot and gussying up the area with more seating, new plants and trees. Down a refreshing pint with your friends, family and even your dog (on a leash please) in our big backyard. Soak up some CLE sunshine. Chill in the shade under "Big Red" – the tallest Red Mulberry tree in Ohio or under our giant sycamore tree "Sycamore Sid" that dates back to the original space in 1865. And of course, picnic friendly –bring your own or enjoy something tasty off our Bites menu. Groups welcome or just come by yourself with a good book and check out this hidden (outdoor) gem.
our unique neighbors
Craft beverage madness! Visit our store front artisan neighbors. Sip on some honey wine (mead) at Western Reserve Meadery, do a couple tastings, find your favorite and take a bottle home. Also check out the fancy woodwork that owner Jason has crafted himself. And where is that tantalizing freshly roasted coffee aroma coming from? Stop in to Duck-Rabbit Coffee Roastery where the beans are roasted on site. Check out the cool modern industrial decor, knowledgeable staff and get your caffeine (or decaf) fix. Beer, coffee and mead – a totally tasty trifecta.
