Bike-friendly Nano Brew opens


A few months ago I wrote about Sam McNulty, owner of several bars in Cleveland who stays in great shape with a 6-beer a day habit. You can see his backstory here.

McNulty stays in excellent condition by walking and biking as transportation (he doesn’t own a car), and now he’s about to make it easier for cyclists to grab a beer at his new Nano Brew Cleveland.

In the coming weeks, Nano Brew be debuting the “bike box” — a 20-foot shipping container repurposed as a bike corral. It sits in the street and takes up the space of one car, which is enough room to provide parking for 30 bicycles.

Inside patrons will find a one-barrel brewhouse at the end of a 24-tap bar, where they can watch brewmaster Andy Tveekrem — formerly of Great Lakes Brewing and Dogfish Head — work on his craft.

The beer garden bar also has 24 taps and seats almost 200 people under the shade trees and umbrellas.

“The views of the Cleveland skyline are a great backdrop for sipping local craft beers and enjoying the burger menu,” McNulty told DRAFT.
