Ten years ago, if you visited the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, you would have found an area that could be described, in the politically correct way, as "industrial” or, with the less delicate term, “sketchy.”

It was not much more than the home of historic West Side Market and city’s largest brewery, Great Lakes Brewing Company. It was not an area you walked around alone, at night, according to Sam McNulty, co-owner of Market Garden Brewery. It was also an area where McNulty, an urban planner and craft beer lover, saw potential. A decade later, it is a bustling culinary hub and home to McNutly’s brewery, brewpubs and beer bars.

How did Ohio City’s Cinderella story come true? One word: Beer.
