Ok, so technically this isn’t in Chicago at all. But, we stopped here on our drive back to New York, so it’s getting lumped in with the ‘Chicago trip.’ Willoughby Brewing Co is in the Cleveland suburb, Willoughby, Ohio.
About 5 years ago, Mike was on tour with his band. When they were in Cleveland, he had a beer that he’s been talking about ever since: Willoughby’s Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter. We had to make a point to stop at the brewery on the way home. It marked the halfway(ish) point, and it was perfect timing to grab some dinner.
I had the fish tacos. They were so good, I forgot to take a photo until they were almost gone.
We had brought along two growlers from home so that we’d be able to bring some of the porter back with us.
We sampled a flight of their beer. Besides the Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter, we really liked the Railway Razz and decided to bring some of that home too. The brewery had great food, great beer, a great atmosphere, and our waiter Jim was on point too. If you’re in the Cleveland area, definitely stop in and check it out.
