Once again, Draft Magazine
has included multiple Cleveland watering holes in its annual round-up of America’s 100 Best Beer Bars: 2013.
"As craft beer has exploded, so has the number of incredible places that serve it. This list celebrates those special haunts with less than three locations and one passionate focus: beer. There might be darts and a jukebox or candlelight and a turntable; there might be five beers or 500. But in every spot on our list, you’ll find an excellent brew in your glass and people -- staff, owners, barflies -- who care about that as much as you do."
Among the list is:
Buckeye Beer Engine
"Grab a seat at the horseshoe bar, order up a cask-conditioned pint from local brewery Indigo Imp, and marvel at the inventive displays of beer paraphernalia -- like the beer-bottle light fixtures illuminating this upbeat watering hole."
La Cave du Vin
"A flicker of candle flame and the glow from the bottle coolers is all the light you have to go by in this subterranean beer mecca, which means the handful of taps, discerning bottle selection and vintage list under lock and key are best enjoyed on a date -- leave your beer notebook at home."
"Rich, dark wood tones and soft lighting set the mood for this swanky, Belgian-enriched bar, while bottles of 3 Fonteinen Oud Gueze circa 2009 and plates of pickled pork shoulder help make this joint one of the classiest beer spots in Cleveland to bring a date."
