Hm. Cleveland meetup!

Maybe I'll be there!

Note: try the cheddar beer soup. It's made with Great Lakes Dortmunder Lager.

Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale is my favorite.

I like the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter myself. Please come!

Oh yeah, I'll be the young tall slouchy skinny dude. I'll call ahead and try to get a corner reserved for us.

The future mrs. leotrotsky (a native) & myself shall make all reasonable efforts to attend. We're Ohio City fans.

If you know Ohio City, my wife and I used to live in the purple house on Fulton Road just south of Lorain (not far from Great Lakes).

Great Lakes Brewing Company's Dortmunder Gold. The beer of beers. This beer will stop you dead in your tracks. You will take one sip and look heavenward, and thank the powers that be that you live in a time where such a beer could be made and in such a town where it could be served. And the astonishing thing is, that Clevelanders can actually go to ANY grocery store or supermarket, buy Dortmunder Gold and take it home and drink it at their leisure. (The stuff is not pasteurized, I think, and can't travel.) Meanwhile, the poor suckers in NYC are sitting in their $2,000 a month studios, swilling Rheingold, and thinking they're cool because they live in the same city where David Letterman reluctantly tapes his TV show. But I am speaking here only of Dortmunder Gold. Great Lakes other varieties of beer in themselves would be enough to earn near-hysterical raves -- but Dortmunder Gold... The sheer, towering greatness of this beer overshadows all other beers in all other places, no matter how good, the way Beethoven say, overshadows Schubert and Spohr, the way Hank Williams overshadows Webb Pierce, the way Tolstoy overshadows Chekov... you get the idea.

They don't take reservations for parties under 8 people so I'm just going to show up a little early in case there is a wait.
