Traveling Tuesday: Maumee Bay Brewing Company, Toledo, OH

I first had Maumee Bay beer at the Cincy Winter Beerfest and fell in love with the Amarillo Brillo. I swore the first time I had a chance to be in Toledo I’d visit their brewpub. Last week I had a gig in Detroit where I had to be there early on Sunday morning, so Saturday night in Toledo was a win-win all around. The brewpub is part of the Oliver House, a former hotel that’s the oldest commercial building in Toledo. If life takes you that direction, you owe it to yourself to go.

My personal favorite of all the Maumee Bay beers is the Amarillo Brillo. But I admire how they keep the Buckeye brand alive.
