Word is out... there's a new brewery in town! Sibling Revelry opened its doors in Westlake in February of this year, and they've been going gangbusters ever since.
It's hard to picture a brewery on Clemens Road by I-90 because it's not a destination street for bars or dining. Yet despite the location, Sibling Revelry has a surprisingly cool space. High ceilings, overhead garage door windows, sleek metal seating and rustic wood tables create an inviting, modern, and hip atmosphere that you'll love. The bar was packed when we visited on a Wednesday. I'm sure many patrons work nearby for corporations like Hyland Software. I see Sibling Revelry as a nice place to go for happy hour with coworkers. The vibe is ideal for casual conversation while enjoying live acoustic music.
It was over 90 degrees and humid during our visit, so it was a little too hot for comfort with the windows open in the tasting room. However, Sibling Revelry has ordered some "Big Ass Fans" to help cool the place down on those rare hot days when there's no breeze to take advantage of. We can't wait to return on a Saturday this fall when the cool crisp air flows through the tasting room.
Wondering where the name "Sibling Revelry" came from? I was too, so I gave Carol Sanders, their Director of Sales and Marketing, a call. The brewery was founded by a local Clevelanders, the Kennedy family, and is meant to be a celebration of family. Five generations of Cleveland business owners came together to upstart Sibling Revelry, and their business experience shows. Not all small businesses have the branding, marketing, professionalism, and production capacity that this brewery does. They hired experienced professionals to lift their brand off the ground, and it is working. They already have over 200 points of distribution-- and they just opened in February! You can find their beer at Marc's, Minotti's, Greenhouse Tavern, and Beerhead, to name a few.
The Grapefruit Lavender Wit beer caught my attention, and I eagerly ordered a pint. As the description suggested, it was very refreshing on such a hot, humid day. When I asked Carol what's popular, she said their IPA and Lavender Wit are consistent crowd favorites. As for food, Sibling Revelry does not have a kitchen, but you'll often find a food truck parked outside. They do sell savory flavored roasted almonds from BackAttack Snacks, which make the perfect companion to a cold beer. Plus, they are made by a local Westlake family.
Sibling Revelry is a great place to enjoy live music, local craft beer, conversation and of course revelry with friends and family. Head out to the suburbs this fall to pay one of the newest breweries in town a visit. You won't regret it!
