(Visited 07/2011): Market Garden is located in the Ohio City area literally right around the corner from Great Lakes (side note: I asked one of the bartenders if they considered it a slap in the face that another brewery opened so close, but she said the more the merrier). The brewpub is located on W 25th and Market. Parking is typically scarce in the surrounding area.
The interior is open and clean looking, with 2 different bars in different sections. Communal benches throughout. The front bar is where I posted up, and it features an L-shaped bar, chandeliers and a "Beer" sign made out of light bulbs.
The beer list consists of around 20 taps, 8 of which are house beers and the rest guest taps. Market Garden's beers are available in a $15 sampler and include a Pils, Wheat, Scotch, and Fuggles IPA. All of the beers are decent. They also have a selection of bottled beer, including "large format geek beers".
Service at the bar on a weekday evening was good. The bartender was friendly and well-versed in their beer.
I did not try any food on my visit, but the pretzel appetizer the couple next to me got looked delicious.
Overall this is a nice addition to the Cleveland beer scene. Another side note: Kenny Lofton was in the house during my visit.

When I visited: May 2012.
What I had: Market Garden Spring Porter (draught), Victory Headwaters Pale Ale (draught), mixed berry ice cream, Kono Sauvignon Blanc and beer cocktail for my better half.
What I liked: solid tap list with awesome guest draughts (Sixpoint, Great Divide, Lost Coast, Ballast Point), efficient service, enjoyable fare.
What I disliked: club atmosphere, highish prices, fine for drinks and dessert but I can’t see us having dinner or a lengthy session amidst the blaring music.
Would I go back? Possibly.

real cool location on the west side. place is absolutely massive. top floor is too crowded and we couldnt get a table anywhere as walk-ins. beer garden was packed too on a saturday night, so we were sent to the basement to eat at the bar. its loud as hell down there, but other than that the ambiance is nice. wood everythwhere, chalkboard beer menu, and a visible kitchen. again, its really packed. there were quite a few beers on tap. i thought the saison and the scotch ale were the picks, but all that i tried were more than passable. service was rough because of how busy it was, but the bartender did his best. he did not know much about beer though, which was comical. our food was very good. we split the mussels, i had the duck and fresno chilli mac and cheese, while my girlfriend had the rock shrimp tacos. all of it was great. prices were decent, and all up its a place id return to, but ill call ahead next time or rock up on a weekday.

After leaving Bier Markt, I walked across the street too this place. A modern and industrial decor, with two bars and an intense growler filler. Above each bar were signs that looked like they got them from American Pickers. They had 100 of their own beers and 10 guest taps. The bartenders were quite attentive and nice. Looking at the menu, more my speed. I did not eat, but looking at the plates that came out, it looked good. All the beers were nice, and a nice variety. The only two complaints I have is that I did not come here first, and the staff was quite hipster, but I can deal with that.

The Market Garden from the outside doesn't look like much, but inside it is quite different. The MG is located in the West Side Market area of Cleveland. The bar area where I sat had a nice industrial feel with pleanty of bar seating and high tops. The place is mamoth and I hope to come back in the summer to try their outdoor patio. The quality of the food, beer, and service was great. There was plenty of house made beers on tap and pleanty of choices on the food menu as well. The food was decent, better than your average brewery. Overall it was a nice experience....two full samplers, two lunches, and two pints came to $70 bucks. I guess I would like to see MG pay tribute to WWII vets that were part of Market Garden...a high risk operation that failed planned by English General Montgomery....Monte's English IPA....or Arnem Belgium Ale...or Airborne Amber....that would be cool.

This was a pretty cool place. There was lots of seating, three separate bars and an outdoor beer garden. We ate lunch here once and dinner here the other time. Both times the meals were really good. The beers we tried were pretty good, they are supposed to be distilling at some point too.
Overall it is a pretty nice place with a fun atmosphere, excellent food and some pretty good beers. Check it out.

My wife and I stopped by a week or so ago. We were seated outside on the patio. Great atmosphere, really cool vibe on the patio. I decided to start with the Cluster Fuggle IPA. Solid beer overall. Hops get you up front with a bitter finish. Like I said solid but nothing special. My wife and I both ordered tacos. Small serving size, and not as tasty as they looked. Left us both a little disappointed. I then tried the Pearl Street Wheat. Once again solid. Would have liked a little more clove, but it was a decent hefeweizen. Overall my wife and I had a very good time. Were the food was lacking, the atmosphere and the people made up for it. Looking forward to heading over there again before the weather turns!

Market Garden Brewery sits next door to its big brother West Side Market in Cleveland's Ohio City. MGB is a vast space with front and rear bars with tables throughtout, a large outdoor patio and an equally large basement bar and dining room. The place is fairly dark with really cool, locally built lighting throughout. The beer selection is decent with 7-10 house brews on-tap and another dozen or so guest beers available, nothing too rare but good quality stuff. Samplers are available and customers are encouraged to only sample the MGB beers but I have been there and was able to throw a guest beer or 2 on a 6-sampler set. Their beers usually is a mix of a wheat, IPA or two, stout, porter, scotch ale and seasonals. Food is good quality and i think is slightly overpriced. Service is attentive especially if you are sitting at any of the bars. MGB will succeed due to its location and proprietor but I think their menu pricing needs an adjustment. Overall, def a place to stop on the Cleveland beer tour.

Ended up checking out this place when the wait at Greatlakes was too long. A surprisingly large place once you get inside with a spacious feel to
it with two bars and outdoor "beergarden".
Service was good especially for a busy Sat. though we probably got there before their peak
rush. An interesting menu. I tried the taco's
which were OK. They were a bit on the skimpy side
and could have been a little more flavorful but
overall weren't bad. Other diners had lobster roll (thumbs down) & veggie burger (thumbs up).
Wings were good. Overall the food wasn't bad but
left some room for improvement. Onto the beers.
My main criticism was $15 for 6-4oz.sampler.
I paid it but probably should have complained because obviously expensive for 24 oz.of beer!
The beers were most of the usual standards: pale,stout,wheat,brown,light lager plus a Scotch & IPA. All their beers were well made throughout.
Though not maybe the most exciting styles it is much easier said then done to produce good quality for all the house beers & these had it.(it's amazing to me how many brewpubs serve flawed/tastless beers!) The Scotch & the pale ale
stood out to me as being especially good.the pale was a refreshing change of pace to compared to the intense hoping of all the IPA's out there.
All in all a good place. Not quite at the level of Greatlakes beer/foodwise but still well worth the visit.

This place is OVERPRICED, but maybe that’s what “cool” people do, pay too much for the beer they imbibe. Alebird has been here twice. Last fall, their Oktoberfest beer was EXCELLENT, really top-notch, but Alebird went back recently, after a 15 brewery tour through Hawai’i, California and Arizona, and Alebird found it APPALLING that EXCELLENT beer at a VERY FAMOUS Sonoma Valley Brewery could be purchased for $3.50 a pint, $3.50 a pint in one of the most expensive places to live in America and happy hour had passed, and pints at Market Garden are $5 or $6 each, EVEN in the middle of the day. SCREW THAT! Wise up Cleve, Market Garden Brewery is OVERPRICED. Head to the other brewery nearby for Waaay better value.
