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 brewer’s barley pretzels are a good place to start, but don’t miss out on the Dortmunder gold bratwurst and potato cheese pierogi. The burgers are juicy, and the coleslaw is tangy. Plus, each dish comes with a recommended Great Lakes beer pairing. For dessert, don’t miss the Edmund Fitzgerald chocolate chunk ice cream, made by a local ice cream shop exclusively for the brewery. And, of course, the brew list is topnotch.
