Current Local Beers, Historic Local Brewing Memorabilia and a “Full Cleveland” Sandwich on Tap for Westside Pub

Clevelanders have been making and drinking beer since immigrants first settled along the Cuyahoga River. Northeast Ohio breweries like Leisy’s and P.O.C. were household names long before the local craft beer resurgence led by Great Lakes Brewing Company in the late 1980s. Prosperity Social Club is paying homage to that spirited legacy with a permanent display of historic signage, advertisements, crates, framed photos and other Cleveland brewerania acquired from a lifelong collector. “We’re excited to incorporate all of these treasures into the barroom décor,” says owner Bonnie Flinner. “We’ve always featured vintage industry collectibles, but we’re strengthening our focus on hometown beer advertising with impressive pieces from Erin Brew, Carling Brewing Company and others.”

Flinner’s favorite recent acquisition is also one of the more modest—a plastic wall mount fluorescent sign that reads, “Drink Beer Made in Cleveland.” As if inspired by its simple message, she’s updating Prosperity’s already robust beer list to feature more Cleveland craft brews on tap and in bottles. Draft handles will include locally produced potables like Black Box Brewing’s “End of the World” IPA, Crooked River Settlers Ale ESB, Fat Head’s Bumbleberry Honey Blueberry Ale and Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold.

Diners can order up their preferred pint and pair it with a Prosperity sandwich special that draws on a number of ingredients popular locally. The “Full Cleveland” sandwich is Kielbaski with bacon sauerkraut, Stadium Mustard hollandaise and frizzled onion straws served on a toasted Orlando Baking Company baguette with a side of handcut fries for $8.95.

“Cleveland has a lot of civic pride and we’re excited to share a taste of culinary history with locals and visitors,” says Flinner.
