I actually wanted to place a review of this brewery after reading the reviews on here. I basically had negative views towards the brewery based on the few reviews on here.

So I decided to give it a try. (We had a gift cert so that made it a little easier to take the plunge). I tried their IPA, double IPA, barely wine, hazelnut porter and a toasted coconut porter. All were quite good, b+ to a- quality. The pizza we had was good but a little over priced for the size of it. There were other food options as well.

Overall I would say I have another favorite brewery that is in close proximity to where I live. I will return.

Very interesting location, an old historic building, the Oliver House, it has a few different restraurants all located in the same building. The brewery also houses a very impressive brewerania collection, with a focus on Buckeye Beer which is a beer supposedly brewed by a few different brewers in Toldeo, and now brewed by Maumee Bay.

Buckeye Beer was a disappointment, just had a very yeasty taste, not too good. Also had a winter warmer that was very disappointing. They offered what was called a dry irish stout, but it was very sweet, much more like a milk stout, good if considered a milk stout, horrible if it truly was a dry irish. Also offered what was called an ESB, but it appeared to be an unfiltered wheat with some fruit characteristic. They many need to reconsider some descriptions. Also offered a pale ale and IPA, both of which were very drinkable, but certainly nothing special.

Food also was disappointing, sogy fries, undercooked pizza and a changing menu where everything wasn't available.

As mentioned elsewhere, this is pretty much the only option in Toledo, worth it for the brewerania, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go here.

Toledo's Maumee Bay Brewing Company is located in the historic Oliver House building. In previous incarnations, this was a hotel and apartments. For over a decade, it has housed Toledo's only brewpub. (well, the only surviving brewery)

Maumee Bay is a multifaceted place. On the lower level, you have Mutz. I think of Mutz as a dive bar with it's own beer. It's dark, dank, and a little funky, but it's usually where we end up after Mud Hens games. The second floor pub is a little more refined. The wall are adorned with one of the finest brewerania collections you'll find anywhere. The main restaurant is a little more refined.

I've had mixed results with the beer at Maumee Bay. They've brewed some very nice stout and porter, some middle of the road brown and pale ale, and one memorably bad octoberfest. Cask ale is available, but not all the time.

If you want Toledo brewed beer, this is your only choice. There's a lot to see here, especially if you are interested in breweriana. The food is standard brewpub fare. The location is a little tricky to find, but parking is plentiful on the street. There is a small lot next to the main doors, and 2 lots across the road.

Big changes at Maumee Bay since I last visited. The old Mutz is no longer and the main downstairs bar is a morrocan restaurant. Go upstairs for Maumee Bay. They've downsized the operation to just the one main pub. On the plus side, the beer was a better than last visit.
