Sick for Cleveland Beer week but still managed to check out Fat Heads new brewery and tap house

My start to Cleveland Beer week did not go as I had planned with a sinus infection. Saturday instead of going to Tremont Taphouse for the Bell’s tap takeover, I went to check out Fat Heads new brewery and tap house in Middleburg Heights.

I had peeked at a few photos before I went and was excited to see it in person.

I expected the place to be small and was worried we wouldn’t find a seat. However, the place is huge! There are picnic tables, barrel tables, tall tables and a bar to sit at.

IMG_2759We arrived with perfect timing as they were just about to start a tour. We grabbed a beer and headed for a tour with Eric.

We were provided with safety glasses as a precaution. In the picture below, I wasn’t mad, just trying to take a selfie mid tour without anyone noticing.

Tour guide Eric tried to pretend he didn’t know everything about beer and brewing. That was a lie, he knew what he was talking about, gave a very informative tour and let us ask questions. I was impressed and would even go on another tour.

To say this place was clean is an understatement. It’s spotless. I always expect breweries to be dark, dingy and as dirty as a garage. This place is bright, clean and welcoming.

The Tap House at Fat Head’s opened on October 18th, just in time for Cleveland Beer week. They offer a limited menu of apps, pizzas and sandwiches. Some guys at the bar got a pizza and it looked really good.
