Found in 1988, Great Lakes Brewing Company in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood has been a gathering place to enjoy hand-crafted beers and delicious, locally sourced food. 

But aside from its brewhouse and restaurant, the brewery features several spaces to host the perfect wedding.

The Tasting Room, for example, can accommodate 150 seated guests or 200 standing. Located on the upper floor of the brewery, this room features an antique bar, vintage beer memorabilia and original brick from the building’s previous life as the Leonard Schlather Brewing Co. stables, according to the Great Lakes Brewing Company website. Guests can view the production brewhouse through the Tasting Room’s windows and observe the brewers at work. 

The Rockefeller Room, on the other hand, can accommodate 36 seated guests and 50 standing. Located above the brewpub and named after John D. Rockefeller, this room features a beer barrel wall, vintage style lighting and beer memorabilia and furniture made from reclaimed Cleveland wood, as well as its own full bar, the website says.

Finally, the Beer Cellar, which can accommodate 20 guests seated and 50 standing, is located on the lower level of the brewpub. This space features its own bar and includes upcycled keg hanging lights, original stone floors and close-up views of the fermentation tanks and small-batch barrel aging room, according to the GLBC website.

All GLBC receptions receive an onsite venue coordinator to oversee food and beverage service along with logistics, all staffing, and setup and teardown of all GLBC equipment, according to the GLBC website. The menu selection accompanies complimentary table linens and linen napkins, glassware, flatware, china, bar wash, bar service and water service. 

Conveniently located near Cleveland’s downtown and west side suburbs, GLBC is an ideal location for both beer and history lovers. For more information, 2516 Market Ave., Cleveland, OH 44113, call (216) 771-4404.

F.A.Q.

Do I get to meet my DJ?

Of Course! This is your big day, we want you to be comfortable and able to build a rapport with your DJ. We encourage open communication between us and our clients. We can set-up face to face meetings, video calls, and teleconferences.

How do I secure my date?

We ask that when you are ready to book, you give us a signed contract and a $600 deposit. The initial deposit comes off the final balance. After that, you are locked in to your date. Payment plans are available, but we do not require the final balance until a week before your wedding.

Are there any hidden fees?

No. All prices you see include tax, set-up & tear-down, and travel to most places. When paying with credit card there is a 3.8% convenience fee. No fees when paying by check or cash.

Do you work with other vendors?

Yes! While we have partnerships with vendors, we do not require you use them exclusively. You can always book us independently and we’ll ensure that all vendors are on the same page throughout the entire planning process and evening.
