Historic brewery that takes you back to the 1800s! Staff was friendly, and even gave us an impromptu history lesson of the building and the founding of their brewery. Beer was solid, and the space is really nice, with social distancing in effect so go enjoy a few rounds!

One of my favorite places to hang in Cleveland. Great music, beer, and vibes-- inside the beer hall or in their shady beer garden. The staff is very pleasant!!

Great experiences at Forest City Brewery every time! This was my first time out as the country opens and they did an exceptional job of enforcing the social distancing rules. Beer is always good - they don't sell food, but encourage bringing in outside food. Best Beer Garden in town & the music is always phenomenal. Highly encourage everyone to visit Forest City Brewery.

I discovered FC last year because of the brewery passport and came back many times. Living in the time of COVID, I appreciate FC even more! Your outdoor area is a perfect space to keep people safely distanced. Last night was the first time I saw live music since the beginning of March and it was wonderful! Thank you! I also have to share that the Opening Day IPA is a great beer! I truly appreciate all of your COVID related policies. My only ‘complaint’ is that many people were ordering at the bar without a mask. I’ve been at FC several times in the past few weeks and everyone was wearing a mask when inside. Last night was much more crowded and a bit concerning that it wasn’t enforced (although it’s sad that we have to police people when it’s common sense that we need to protect others- especially the bartenders/staff who encounter many people throughout the night). Thank you for your efforts in trying to open back up safely and providing access to live music.
