When I visited: May 2012.
What I had: Bear Republic NorCal California Style Bitter (draught), Sierra Nevada Hoptimum (draught), Bockor Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge (draught), Chorizo Tacos, cocktails for the lady.
What I liked: Outrageously robust tap list with many beers that I’ve never seen on draught before (Gnarly Wine, Maharaja, Hazelnut Brown), relaxed and welcoming vibe, killer music, fast service with a smile, tasty and affordable pub grub, fair prices given the quality of everything.
What I disliked: Nothing.
Would I go back? No question. One of the best beer bars that I’ve come across.

I visited this place on a short trip to Cleveland. Worth noting for out-of-towners - it is a short drive from the downtown area in a nice neighbourhood that has lots of parking.
The pub itself is on the small side with a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Outside is a very nice large patio area. It was dog happy hour when we were there, and lots of people were sitting on the patio with their dogs, which I thought was a pretty cool idea.
The selection is good, with at least 25 taps and dozens of botttles. I had an Ommegang Saison and a Smuttynose IPA. The food was decent, although we just ordered from the happy hour menu and so can't comment on the dinner menu.
The service was excellent. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely prompt. It wasn't very busy when we were there, but I was still impressed.

Pretty cool place. A bit smaller than I anticipated, the Tremont Tap House is just a nice pub on the inside. We went on a weeknight, so it wasn't very crowded at all. Clean, calm, and a nice place to enjoy a brew. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly--we had good service the whole night, which was probably helped by how empty it was. Selection was pretty good... about 20-30 taps of some pretty good stuff. Nothing mind-blowing, but it was overall a solid selection. Draft beers aren't terribly expensive, but bottles are prohibitively so. Best value (and most fun) is probably the flight of four (of your choice) 5-ish oz. draft beers for $10. Fun place, I would definitely go back.

This place is situated in a somewhat difficult to find location but totally worth seeking out if you are on the west side. The bar has somewhat of an awkward arrangement being long an narrow, with the Cavs or other sports always on at the far end. The bar is a great place to sit and the owner is quite knowledgeable and a beer enthusiast, something that is a rare for a Cleveland bar. The taplist always has a few things I want to try and it is complimented a pretty nice bottle list too. The food is good for the price. One of my go-to spots when I'm in town.

Alright, so I used to live in Cleveland and recently got my father into drinking more craft brew. I have taken him to Buckeye Brew Engine, GLBC, and various others. On my recent trip back home, he recommended we check this place out. So we did...
A- My review may be skewed a bit as this was a Saturday night, but this was one for the worst combinations or music, t.v., set up I have ever partook in. Right off the bat I feel like I'm in some dance club in downtown Cleveland. The brick walls are nice, but the dim atmosphere with the bar all lit up with bright white lights from the beer coolers and Bone Thugs playing in the background was all a little too much for me. The music was so blaring that you could barely hear the person sitting next to you. Even more bizarre was the spiderman cartoons that were being displayed on the flat screen tv's. I don't have anything against the music they played, just that the loudness and choice of music was more appropriate for someone that was getting ready to hit the dance floor and grind on some chicks. I'll pass on this place solely for this reason. If I'm going to drink some craft beer with friends or family, I would like to be able to carry a conversation with them and enjoy the beer rather than feel out of place as the bass rattling my ear drums.
Q- This was another frustrating aspect of my visit. They had great stuff on tap (I had Saison Dupont and Double Trouble), not too mention a decent bottle selection, but it was all wiped out by the way the beer was presented. Yes, they were in the correct glassware, but all of the glasses were completely soaked with at least a half inch of water sitting in them. There was no distinction in serving temperature amongst the various beers as the majority were served rather cold.
S- Nothing to complain about here. For a Saturday night, the bartender seemed to be on top oh his stuff.
S- The selection was pretty big with 20+ taps. Nothing ridiculous, but still some solid selections. Also had a bottle list that was pretty extensive.
F- I didn't have a chance to taste the food, but I will take my father's word for it that it's pretty good. He likes to eat and prefers their food over Great Lakes and Buckeye Brew Engine.
V- The vast selections from the bottle list can come at a bit of a cost. The beers on-tap weren't too bad, but some were pretty ridiculous (Examples: $7.00 for a 10 oz. pour of Dupont Saison; 12 oz. 3 Philosophers was $7.50; $16 for OA Unearthly; etc.)
Overall, it's a shame that this bottle selection and amount of taps is wasted on a place like this. There is a lot of potential, but the atmosphere and prices are too much for me to ever come back here. I think I'll stick with GLBC or Buckeye Brewing when I'm in town.

Tremont Tap House is only about 5 minutes off the W14th street exit of I-90, and approximatly 5 minutes from Great Lakes Brewing and Bier Markt.
The Atmosphere was nice, open faced brick with a long bar. Several Flat Panel TV's behind the bar showing local/National sports. Small crowd being a Tuesday night, but not empty by any means.
Had a nice selection of Tap and Bottled beers. I counted 24 taps in total, but my counting usually sucks. 3 Handles from Bell's including HopSlam, a few Stone, Rouge, 2 from GLBC including Nosferatu and Xmas Ale, Victory, Southern Tier, Ommegang were all represented well. Beers were served in the correct glass wear.
Service was good, no complaints there.
My wife and I shared several of the happy hour appetizers. Olive Tapenade Pizza Calamari, Pretzel served with a smoked cheese dipping sauceall of which were delicious.
A nice value, my wife and I had all of the food, plus one Ommegang Rare VOS, one Magic Hat #9, and 2 HopDevil all on tap for $34 before tip. Being we ordered the food on happy hour and 2 of the beers where also order during happy hour ($1.50 off drafts).
This is a nice destination that Clevelander's need to add into thier Beer adventure rounds.

The Tremont Tap House is being described as Cleveland's first true beer gastropub. It's located in the Tremont area of Cleveland in an older Italianate style building. There is a fairly long bar on the left as you come in, with small booths along the other side and tables in the back. There is also an outdoor brick patio but I really havn't checked it out since the times I have been here it was the middle of winter. Very solid draft and bottle selection including Duvel, Alesmith, DFH,Bells, Lagunitas,ommegang, New Holland, Maredsous, Weyerbacher, etc. We sat at the bar all three times we've been here and have had friendly, quick service every time. What sets this place apart from other beer bars is the food. Simply outstanding. I've had the the chorizo & goat cheese empanadas and the short rib sliders (braised in strong ale) as appetizers. For the large plates, I've had the duck breast, free range chicken with egg dumplings, and the portobello pizza. It was all amazing except the pizza which was slightly burnt. Along with Prosperity, Edison's, and Southside, a great addition to the Tremont pub scene.
