Working Class Brewery and taproom is located in the Kamm’s Corners area at 17448  Lorain Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio.  Working Class Brewery  produces five year-round styles of beer and a variety of seasonal beers are also available throughout the year.  In addition one-offs and experimental beers will be sold exclusively in our taproom. Our products are distributed in kegs to licensed retail outlets.  The products of Working Class Brewery are wholesaled to premium pubs, taverns and restaurants in the city of Cleveland and its suburbs throughout Cuyahoga County and then to the broader regional market.  In addition, Working Class Brewery has its own tap room where retail customers may come to view the operation of the brewery, purchase beer by the glass, beer to go, snacks, and retail items such as T-shirts, hats and glassware with our logo printed on them.


Working Class Brewing’s mission is to operate a principle-centered, environmentally respectful and socially conscious company committed to crafting fresh, flavorful, high quality beer for the enjoyment of our customers. We aspire to be a premier craft brewery in the Great Lakes region, give back to the veteran community and support organizations against drinking and driving.
