About Hansa Brewery


Our Story

Hansa Brewery

Boris Music made big news when he broke ground in April of 2013 on his multi-million dollar construction project that would transform the corner of Lorain and W. 28th into a shiny new brewery, restaurant, and retail shop. Music and his specialty foods shop Hansa Import House have been fixtures in the Ohio City neighborhood for 40 years, longer even than Great Lakes Brewing. So it was welcome news when he announced his plans to construct a 15-barrel brewery and restaurant while improving his long-running specialty foods shop. That shop, long popular with Eastern European immigrants, carries a huge inventory of imported cheeses, meats, bread, and beers. Now, Boris' dream has become a reality. We welcome you with open arms and cold beer to Cleveland's newest, authentic Eastern European restaurant and brewery. PROST!


  • I very rarely give reviews, but Boris brings old world hospitality to Cleveland. The food is as close to homemade as I’ve had outside the black forest and the beers are fantastic! I would highly recommend.
