Craft Beer in Parma?

Has anyone else been to Brew Co Parma yet?
Located on Pearl Road, it's taken over a spot that has already been many bars/restaurants since I moved to Cleveland six years ago. It's a pretty large space, has a great big patio with an outdoor bar, and free parking in a large lot. Just no one seems to do well here, and the type of crowd that this location has drawn in the past has resulted in a scene that I wasn't in for. Will this new establishment change that?

It offers a menu of fresh, never frozen items like burgers, cheese melts, pizzas, classic pub appetizers and more. But, it's the beer that drew us in the other night. They have 20 taps, where they are featuring JUST craft beer from Ohio breweries. Support local!
All I focused in on was the Willoughby Brewing Company's Peanut Butter Porter. I was in heaven. It's one of my top three favorite beers, and I don't get to have it very often.

We didn't have any food, but it looked good coming out of the kitchen. The staff was helpful and pleasant, and we were served quickly. Overall, I was interested in coming back.

They also have some decent food specials, like $5 one-topping pizza on Mondays, $3 pound of wings on Tuesdays, $2.99 burger on Wednesdays, and $2 taco on Thursdays.

So, has anyone else been yet? You may snub your nose at Parma, but I don't care where I dine/drink as long as it has good food and good craft beer. Will this place last?

I love the local beer angle! It is a large location, nice parking and patio, etc. Hopefully at lasts, at least until I can get there to check it out :-)

I think every time I've been to that location, it's been a different establishment. I'm really hoping this place sticks. Our part of town could use something like this!

I just visited BrewCo for the first time last Friday. I arrived shortly after 4:00 so there were not many customers there yet. I sat at the outside bar and had sirrachia honey wings and the Eastsider melt (BBQ rib meat, onion rings, slaw and cheez whiz). The food was good but messy. The wings had more breading than I prefer but were very crunchy and the sauce was great. Oh, I had three draft craft beers - they were only $3 each! I'll be back.
