Try Buckeye Lake Brewery For Unique Beer

I enjoy a beer or three occasionally like most, but I have not tried a micro-brewery like The Buckeye Lake Brewery until recently. It was a fun experience and I’ve been back a few times to get my growler refilled. 

They offer a range of different types of beer from pale to dark and everything in between. My favorite is their Irish beer. There is a sampler to try them all. They sell beer in 1/2 pint, pint, 20 ounce, and a 64 ounce “growler”. The growler is a jug that you can take home and bring back to be refilled later.

The different sizes are a plus. You can stop buy and have a 1/2 pint if you don’t want to get intoxicated and enjoy one of their fine sandwiches, then have the growler to take home to have a few more.

I found the employees to be friendly folks happy to answer any questions and they take pride in their product and service. If you’re a beer drinker, stop by and support a local business.
