After more than eight years in business, Blue Fig Hookah Cafe will close its doors at the end of April.

Cleveland is a classic Midwestern city. Although a lot of industry jobs and factories have left over the years, many still remain and continue to maintain the rusty, gritty tone of the city on the lake.

Lakewood is the shining star of Cleveland suburbs. Many suburban hangouts offer the same American family dining where waiters with tons of flair offer you a plethora of domestic beers alongside various fried appetizers; but not Lakewood.

The Cleveland Brewery is the best hidden brewery in the city (emphasis on the hidden). Tucked away on East 185th St., the brewery blends in with several small businesses in the area, and is easily overlooked. After locating the brewery, I entered into a packed party.

It has been roughly two years since this column first started. Breweries continue to pop up and sadly some I have reviewed have closed. The laws of supply and demand inevitably eat up some breweries due to the sheer volume of them. Cleveland tastes have changed as well. Cocktails are the new kings...
