This is by far one of my favorite brew-pubs anywhere in the midwest. Most brew-pubs tend to have more of a focus on the restaurant side of the business, brewing only a few common styles of beer such as a pale, a red, a stout, and a light. Indeed, Maumee Bay Brewing has these styles, plus many more styles such as a wonderful Kolsch, a delicious Vanilla Bean Stout, a delicate IPA, and more. The Glass City Pale and the Fallen Timbers Red are absolutely excellent examples of their respective styles. Next to the Maumee Brewing Company is bar called Mutz. I can see why some reviewers and older people would not care for this type of bar. However, I think that this is one of the best bars in all of Toledo. Its always fun with a lively crowd with a couple of pool tables, a shuffle board table, and a play station 2. There are plenty of peanuts and the only $5 pitchers on Thursdays, quite a bargain for quality craft brew. Yes, they do serve Bud Light, etc. but that helps keep the clientelle well balanced and a fun atmosphere.

This is a pre- Civil War building, beautifully preserved, updated with modern amenities, and well cared for. The original brick, exposed framework, and use of wood all make this a great housing for a brewpub. The main bar is of heavy oak with a copper top and all encased in thick epoxy. Exquisite and easily maintained.
The service here is quite good, but I found both the beer and the food to be wanting. Just something too average about both. A shame really because I could see GLBC making something huge of a venue like this.
The main barroom houses the Toledo Brewing Hall of Fame honoring the 10 home town breweries since 1840. This includes photos and drawings of those operations along with biographies and period stories of the brewing families. Frankly, I had never heard of any of them which explain why none of them seemed to survive past the first half of the Twentieth Century.
This location also houses huge numbers of cans, bottles, and beeriana from the past. Most of the collection was acquired at the sale of assets from the demise of Oldenburg. I was assured that the visible collection is small compared with what's in storage. Wow!
