Great Lakes Brewing Co. Restaurant Review: A tasting room provides a bird's-eye view of the shiny steel tanks and antique bar that Eliot Ness once bellied up to. The cellar bar is less bright, but even more bona fide. While beer is the main draw, the food is a reputable co-star. The sausage sampler, which offers a selection of four locally made encased meats, is a great place to start. Burgers are juicy (we like the Black & Blue version) and the coleslaw is tangy. Plus, each dish comes with a recommended Great Lakes beer pairing. For dessert, don’t miss Porter chocolate chunk ice cream, made by an area ice cream shop exclusively for Great Lakes. And, of course, the brew list is topnotch.
