USA Today’s 10 Best Reader’s Choice Award recognizes Collision Bend as best in the country.

Cleveland – Collision Bend Brewing Company announces it was voted best brewpub in America by USA Today’s 10 Best Reader’s Choice Awards.

Collision Bend bested top brewpubs from Atlanta, Detroit, SanDiego, Chicago, Portland, and Philadelphia to claim the title. “We were humbled by how many votes Collision Bend received to become America’s Best Brewpub,” said Luke Purcell, brewmaster for Collision Bend Brewing Company. “It’s an honor to be recognized by so many of our fans. For the past year, since we opened, we have worked very hard to create something special that would keep customers coming back for top-notch beers, unique food and stunning views on the Cuyahoga River.”

Collision Bend Brewing Company celebrates its one-year anniversary in April. Last year, the brewpub was built on Old River Road in the renovated Hausheer Building, which was originally built in 1863 and formerly served as the Watermark Restaurant. Collision Bend serves hand-crafted artisanal beers and menu items modeled after Southern-California street food. “We wanted to create a first-class brewery and full-service restaurant in Cleveland that set the benchmark for brewpubs nationwide,” said Julian Bruell, director of service for Collision Bend Brewing Company.
“This award verifies that we are doing something right and that our customers appreciate our hard work.”
