Founded in 2014 by owner and brewer, Karl Spiesman. Karl in the early days briefly thought about opening an Urban Winery instead of brewery. Luckily, he followed his heart and kept making delicious beer. With a love for the local beer scene which rivaled his love of Cleveland, this nano brewery was built brick by brick, and barrel by barrel. Hence the name! With old church pews and a blackboard bar top reclaimed from a defunct schoolhouse in the neighborhood, Brick and Barrel’s industrial feel fits right into the local neighborhood of Columbus Road Peninsula in the Cleveland Flats. Hop on a tour and come see what Karl’s brewing up firsthand with his small but mighty 3.5 barrel brewhouse that cranks out some of our favorite beers in the area.
