Local craft beer aficionados share their holiday favorites to help you expand your beer palate. And you can get them close to home.
Rozi's Wine & Liquor House Inc. 14900 Detroit Ave. Lakewood 216-221-1119 Rozi's Manager Bill Barak gave us the rundown between the two general classifications of Christmas-time beers, Christmas or spiced and winter warmers. “Winter warmers are scotch ales or strong ales. Basically they are heavier more malty. They warm your belly. They are thick and thus take longer to get through. “Then you have your Christmas beers which are spice beers. The actual classification is spice or vegetable beers is the broad style.” In his opinion Ohio is the leader of the spice beers as far as Christmas ales go. There really aren't other areas that produce it or produce it as well as we do, he said. Winter warmer craft beer selection: Breckenridge Christmas…

Longtime establishment on Detroit Avenue wrapping its makeover.
Rozi’s Wine House unveiled its new outdoor patio during last weekend's Lakewood Arts Festival. The exterior work on the 100-year-old building is expected to wrap up by the end of the summer. The longtime establishment at 14900 Detroit Ave. is getting a new look. In addition to a new façade, crews are busy working to add a 326-square-foot outdoor “porch,” that will host events, wine-tastings and fundraisers — as well as good, old-fashioned relaxing. Earlier this year, the establishment was approved for a $30,000 grant, through the city’s storefront renovation program. Also, the city’s public works department has agreed to move a large utility box and replace the traffic signal with a new, modern one at the intersection — both are upgrades …

Work begins at the establishment on its new facade and porch area.
Rozi’s Wine House is getting a makeover. Actually, the longtime establishment at 14900 Detroit Ave. is getting completely new look. In addition to a new façade, crews are busy working to add a 326-square-foot outdoor “porch,” that will host events, wine-tastings and fundraisers — as well as good, old-fashioned relaxing. The exterior work on the 100-year-old building is expected to wrap up by the end of the summer. “At first, the idea was to change the façade,” said manager Corey Rossen, grandson of the store’s founders. “We looked at some changes to the storefront. We asked ourselves ‘Do we want to change the paint color, or add some features?’" Earlier this year, the establishment was approved for a $30,000 grant, through the city’s …
