I was just messing. Like you said, should be a good game.
Yeah, it's one of the top breweries in the US; been a while since I was there (like 5+ years), so I forget what else is right in that area, but, the location is close to other restaurants, etc
Disregard Great Lakes for food (and their somewhat overrated beer). Check out Market Garden in Ohio City (it's about 2 minutes from downtown). They craft their own brews on site and their Festivus ale is one of my favorite beers of all-time. Granted, Great Lakes is a short walk from there, so you could still stop by for a beer or two. However, Market Garden would be better for food. If you wouldn't mind venturing out a little further, Melt Bar & Grilled is probably the best place you can stop for amazing food at a reasonable price. It also has a great selection of beers, but it typically has a long wait. (I'd suggest going to the Independence location and sitting at the bar area, which is first-come, first-serve.)
I guess it really depends on where you plan to stay and how far you plan to venture from there. In terms of a wide-range of food/drink options within walking distance of each other, checking out Ohio City would probably be the most fun. Ohio City Burrito is also good if you want a quick bite and just want to tour the bars around there as well.
I'm on board with all of this. Also right downtown there's a little street on E. 4th that has amazing restaurant after amazing restaurant. They're on the pricier side, though. For example, Michael Symon's original restaurant, Lola, is on that strip.
