Welcome to Bookhouse!

Bookhouse Brewing is a small brewery and taproom in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood, offering innovative and approachable beers and ciders in a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. One block south of Detroit Road at 1526 W 25th Street, the brewery has a historic, multi-room interior.


President and brewer Vaughn Stewart aspires to brew beers that foster community and conversation. “We want to make beers that show our passion for the eclectic, the unusual and the historical. At the same time, we also want to have something for everyone, from the casual beer fan to the hardcore beer geek. We’re all about curiosity and fun.” Session beers, those with lower alcohol, feature prominently, encouraging customers to pass the time with friendly conversation or great reading material (there are plenty of books on hand).


The 83-seat taproom and patio are rich with historic features. Built in 1866, the building originally housed the Baehr Brewery. Just seven years after opening, patriarch Jacob Baehr died, leaving his wife, Magdalena, to run the business and raise their eight children. Cleveland’s “Widow Brewer” ran the business successfully through 1901. The Bookhouse Brewing taproom occupies the former Baehr tavern space, offering a warm environment to gather with friends and share a few pints.
