There seems to be a new brewery opening in Cleveland every month. But Bookhouse Brewing, located in a quiet corner of Ohio City on Detroit Avenue’s far north end in a historic 1866, offers a different vibe, one that’s more coffeeshop than brewery.
In a series of cozy rooms (and an outdoor patio in warm weather), they offer “innovative and approachable” beers and ciders (and non-alcoholic beverages), including “session beers” with lower alcohol content that encourage lingering. As brewer Vaughn Stewart says, they want to brew beers that foster “community and conversation.” Books adorning the spaces’ wooden shelves also invite patrons to stay awhile. And Bookhouse invites use of its facilities for meetings, parties and fundraisers, with no fee. A few bar snacks are available, but outside food welcome.
