Default Breweries to visit in Cleveland, Buffalo and Toronto

Good Morning all the wife and I are going to be visiting Cleveland, Buffalo and Toronto over the week of Thanks giving. WE are wondering what to see and what breweries are great to visit in the areas.

Thank in advance

Yeah, Great Lakes in Cleveland. Oddly enough there is also a Great Lakes in Toronto that might be worth visiting. Also in Toronto:

Mill Street
Steam Whistle (not my favourite beer but I hear they do a good tour)
Bellwoods (brewpub)
Amsterdam
Granite (brewpub)

Not a brewery but Bar Volo has a great beer selection... For Ontario. LOL You're coming from the land of plenty so it may pale in comparison to most places you can visit on your way.

There will be more replies but that's just off the top of my head.

More for Toronto:
Great Lakes Brewing - Maker of Crazy Canuck, my favorite Pale Ale
Black Creek - An old style brewery actually inside of Black Creek Pioneer Village

Also, while we are on the subject of great bars in Toronto, check out C'est What if you get a chance. Great beer advocates, just a block or two from the St. Lawrence Market, and only sell Canadian Craft Beer.

Haha, I still hear Gordon Lightfoot when I drink an Edmund Fitzgerald!

My favorites in the Cleveland Area:

1. The Brew Kettle (Strongsville)
2. Fat Heads (North Olmsted)
3. Buckeye Beer Engine (Lakewood)

Great Lakes is worth a visit, but these other three get my repeat business.

Great Lakes is the apex of Cleveland's beer scene

Fat Heads in North Olmsted (west side of Cleveland) has an amazing array of beers too.
