Maumee Bay Brewing Company 27 Broadway Toledo, OH

Located in the oldest continuously used building in Toledo, Maumee Bay Brewing is super haunted and has no shortage of tasty brews. Worth the ghosts and the drive.  Try a flight of their house brewed beers and be sure to pair it with a soft pretzel the size of a Buick. Seriously, an actual Buick.

Toledo’s own brew, Buckeye Beer

Buckeye Beer was born in Toledo in 1838. It was eventually sold to Miller Brewing Company, and the original recipe became Miller Lite in 1972. Buckeye Beer was reborn in 2013 when Maumee Bay Brewing Co owner Jim Appold bought the name back and replicated the brew.
