Cleveland has waited patiently and come Wednesday, the city will have another place to crack open a cold one.
Thirsty Dog Brewing Company is set to open its Cleveland Flats location this Wednesday. The brewpub sits on the East Bank of the Flats in the former Crop Rocks space on Old River Road.
Thirsty Dog will house a 10-barrel system with special new beers brewed on site, as well as 42 beers on tap. The menu will include burgers, kielbasa, pierogies and poutine style plates.
Thirsty Dog has become an area favorite with staple brews such as the 12 Dogs of Christmas and Raspberry ales.
“With the resurgence that’s been going on in Cleveland, especially in the Flats, in the East Bank Flats, I think we’ve got the prime location,” said co-founder John Najeway.
The site has an outdoor patio with views of the Cuyahoga River and an interior dining room to accommodate 200 people.
“If you look around the restaurant, this is one of the larger brew pubs in Northeast Ohio. We’ve got an incredible patio along the banks of the river,” said Najeway.
Najeway says it's a dining experience that'll make you want to sit, stay and come back again for more.
