Nano Brew Welcomes Cleveland Cyclists
As a 19-year resident of Pittsburgh, I’ve been ingrained with the notion that the nearby city of Cleveland is not only a lesser city in terms of sports teams, but tacitly inferior in every way shape and form. So it should be understood that what I’m about to say not only involves swallowing a bit of civic pride, but puts me at serious risk of being publicly ostracized on the streets of the Steel City. But I’ll go ahead and say it, anyhow. Cleveland doesn’t totally suck.
They’ve got a great bike scene in Cleveland (notice I resisted calling it The Mistake by the Lake) replete with a burgeoning advocacy organization, Ray’s, Chenga, a world class velodrome on the horizon, and a polo player named Karate Jon. Seriously.
Nano Brew is the latest addition to Cleveland’s bike culture. Owned in part by Loung Ung (profiled in Urban Velo #25), Nano Brew touts 24 beers on draft, stays open until 2:30 am 364 days a year, and serves food until 2 am.
