Platform Beer Co. set to open doors with creative approach to brewing, business
By Marc Bona, The Plain Dealer
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Cleveland's Ohio City neighborhood adds yet another brewery to its mix officially Friday, when Platform Beer Co. opens its doors at noon. It has a very unique approach to brewing and business, serving both customers while cultivating and guiding brewers. Here's what it's about:
What and where it is
Platform is at 4125 Lorain Ave., just west of Randall Road.
Giant front windows at the long, narrow, brick-lined space swing open so customers at communal picnic tables inside can enjoy a breeze. Capacity is about 100 people, including a 38-seat bar but not including a fenced-in patio space that has room for hop bines to grow. American-made products like the tap handles are used throughout the space.
And it's draft-only - no liquor, no wine, no bottled beer.
