Whether you need a break from winning your kids stuffed animals at Fantasy Island, or you just want a fun spot to drink some really good beers, you should go to Ship Bottom Brewery. This big brewery and bar overlooking the square in Bay Village serves about 10 beers that are brewed on site, which you can try as part of different tasting flights, like “The Wipeout” that includes just about all of them. It’s also BYO food, so bring some gigantic slices from Bay Village Pizza next door, and drink some really good beers while listening to live music, which they have most days during the summer.
