Great Lakes Brewing, Willoughby Brewing, Southern Tier, meatballs at Polpetta, more - this week’s WTAM beer-food chat

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Bill Wills of WTAM 1100-AM had a lot of ground to cover. Willoughby Brewing is expanding, Polpetta is opening in Rocky River, Southern Tier is in Cleveland, Great Lakes Brewing has a 30th anniversary party scheduled as well as a can release of Moondog Ale, and Fat Head’s wins at Cleveland Oktoberfest.

Willoughby Brewing to expand

Willoughby Brewing Co. is moving westward to brew more beer. The brewery has bought the equipment in the former Buckeye Brewing Co. space in Cleveland. It won’t be a tasting room or restaurant, just a chance to get more beer to the public.
