Got there early Sunday evening and it was a bit busy, walked right in and sat outside. Went inside later and sat at the bar. Signs everywhere (I loved the old Blatz sign by the front door), tap markers on the wall. Kind of small, but loved it. I knew that they had a great beer list, but it had to take me 20 minutes to read over all the bottles. The menu was up to date. The server and bar manager knew tons. They had to love and/or hate me, I kept ordering rarer big bottles that they had to find downstairs. The food, my my, chips and dip, a good starter. Then a Fatty Melt, chicken and bacon sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches. Bleu cheese slaw on the side. This might have been the closest to heaven I have ever been. Prices were good, I can't complain on a big bar tab, I knew what I was ordering and if it was in Pittsburgh, it would have been double. I can't wait to go back!!

A: I dropped in as a pit stop on my way from Rochester, NY to Grand Rapids, MI. The place is decorated with tap handles, beer tins, and rare bottles. The music was awesome, with jazz ringing through the air.
Q: I hate this category, do I comment on the quality of the food? the selection? Oh well, I guess I will just tell you that this place strives for quality.
S: My server was very helpful, and knew the Buckeye beers well.
S: 27 taps, 2 casks, and a great bottle selection including several hard-to-find brews. Not only is their tap count impressive, but it is eclectic; there seems to be at least one example of every major style. My brother asked for a bud light, and was politely told that it wasn't on the list. They also have a handful of their own brews, which are delightful.
F: I had the Hot Italian, which was a tad salty, but still enjoyable overall. Their food is interesting, but don't expect anything that is on the light side.
V: 8-9$ for a sandwhich or burger, 4-6$ for a normal draft. Very reasonable I would say. I definitely suggest stopping by this place for a good brew.

I don't have a bad thing to say about Buckeye Beer Engine and highly recommend it to anyone looking for some great beers.
I landed in Cleveland and remembered reading about a couple of bars near the airport and decided to check one out before heading down the road for the week. I opened Google Maps on my phone and simply searched "beeradvocate" to discover Buckeye Beer Engine just a few miles north of CLE.
Madison Street wasn't looking too promising and upon seeing the bar I had my doubts, but they all left my mind upon opening the door and seeing the giant U-shaped bar.
It was just after 5 o’clock and I took a seat at the bar; I was immediately greeted and given both draft and bottle lists in addition to the food menu. The draft list was a more detailed list of their beer board and offered ABV, style, serving vessel, and cost of 4 ounce samples. The bottle list was eight pages long and was separated by style. Both lists included local, national, and international craft beers in all styles.
I ordered the “Hippie Burger” with shoestring fries, both of which I recommend. The burger came with a “breaded pickle” (a fried pickle) which was a bonus and made me think of my Texas home.
By the time I left the bar had started to fill up with all walks of life, both old and young, eating and drinking their fill in a fantastic bar with friendly staff, excellent food, and fantastic beer.
