We visited the newly opened Buckeye Beer Engine on their first sunday open. A new bar in Lakewood would usually go of little notice, but the main bar pictured here offers some of the worlds most admired craft beers.
The Tap handles are a display in and among themselves. The always changing draft beer selection is displayed in bright easy to read dry-erase board, as well as a paper copy. Drafts are offered in pints, specialty glasses, or 4 oz tastings.
I decided on a rye stout, as we looked over the complete beer list and food menu. The menu is quite sufficiant with standard bar offerings as well as a long list of interesting burgers. We had 2 burgers, both where very good. The chips are wonderfully crisp, and the frites are top notch. They have a good housemade ketchup to top it off.
The Beer-Cheese soup was thick and deliciuous. Everything else we had arrived in a paper lined basket. Nothing wrong with this while swilling high quality beer, but made our perogi app a little awkward to cut.
Here some professionals attempted to photo this lively beer. Other food items already got captured.
I think the Buckeye Beer Engine is a unique yet acessible bar that fits very well into the drinking and dining atmosphere of Lakewood. I will definatly return both for quality burgers, and unique beers, all at a reasonable price.
