Thank you so much for all

of your services on

Saturday night. Everyone

had a blast and said the

food was amazing!! This

was the perfect place to

have our fall formal. Everything you have done

is greatly appreciated. Hopefully we can hold another event there soon.

I will definitely keep in

touch with you



Great Lakes Christmas Ale

Has Arrived

Dark, honey-amber color with a creamy white head. The aroma was full of holiday spices; gingerbread; cinnamon. The taste strongly followed the aroma with a nice, balancing bitterness. Body came across as in character; smooth, crisp, with a semi-dry finish.

This was equivalent of sipping a warm, nicely spiced liquid holiday cookie. The malts and spice flavors (from whatever the source) just came across so nicely balanced and complex without smacking you in the face with overly strong flavors. This is by far one my best holiday ales I've had in a long, long time. Highly recommended...

Southern Tier Pumking

Poured deep orange with 1/2 thick head that lightly dissipated. S:rich pumpkin pie crust with cinnamon and nutmeg. T: almost spot on with how it smells; pumpkin pie crust with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and slight hints of allspice. I have to admit, I'm a fan of the sweeter craft seasonal beers, and this is one of them. Best pumpkin beer I've had to date. Absolutely amazing!

Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald


Pours an opaque brown with a thin off-white head. A wonderful Carmel, chocolate, nut smell. A very sweet malt right off the back. Mid has just a touch of coffee and hop that slides into chocolate nut goodness. A wonderful porter!


Portside Brewery

East Bank Belgian Blonde

Golden Ale/Blond Ale · 6.0 ABV · Brewed by Portside Distillery

A light malty blonde ale with mild Belgian esters and a side of sweetness


Columbus IPA - from Columbus Brewing Company

  Bring out the best of the season with our Leinenkugel's® Harvest Patch Shandy. It's a traditional wheat beer that we blend with notes of nutmeg, allspice and clove for a flavor that reminds us of homemade pumpkin pie and pairs perfectly with fall. It's the perfect pumpkin shandy to pick this season. For an added touch of fall flavor, try pairing it with spicy beef chili or caramel flan.

Platform Beer Co.

New Cleveland Palesner

This Pilsner/Pale Ale Hybrid is a clear straw color with a crisp German malt body and refreshing Noble hop finish with floral and herbal aromas. Can design done in collaboration with CLE Clothing Company


Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider

This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.


Fat Heads Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale




Brewed with fresh harvested spring honey stolen from some very angry bees (we have the welts to prove it) and infused with fresh blueberries. Creating a light, refreshing ale with a nice blueberry aroma, crackery malt flavors, a hint of sweetness and a refreshing blueberry finish. Get yo buzz on!


BREW KETTLE Four C's American Pale Ale

Pours a crystal clear deep copper color that borders on brown and wears a creamy white head that sticks around for a bit. Smells of citrus and pine, grapefruit and resin mixed with a bit of caramel. Taste is nicely balanced between malt and hop with a nice citrusy old school pale ale kind of feel to it. Medium body with a bit of residual sweetness, moderate level of carbonation and a lick almost sweet mouthfeel. Nice easy drinking pale ale with enough hop to keep it interesting

4 String Brewing Co.

Brass Knuckle Pale Ale

Appearance - I drank it out of the can, but I'm giving this a 4 because the can art is fantastic.

Smell - Even just smelling through the can opening, I smell a great hop aroma. Not too overpowering for an APA. A little sweetness tingles the nosebuds.

Taste - A great mixture that allows the taster to experience the hoppy bitterness one expects in a pale ale, but is not overpowering and sour tasting.

Mouthfeel - crisp, smooth.

Overall - Perhaps it is some of my Columbus bias, but I am going to be picking this up much more for my cheap, keep in the fridge summer offering. I like it quite a bit .


Jackie O

Firefly Amber Ale

Firefly Amber is Jackie O's lightest offering. We refer to it as our gateway ale, as introducing it to macro-drinkers has proved to be effective in converting them into craft beer followers & aficionados. Seasoned craft beer drinkers also admire the drinkability and soft (but wide!) range of flavors embedded within this amber ale. Lightly roasted malt gives Firefly Amber a biscuit-like finish. Carefully selected hops provide an herbal, mildly citrus, aroma and flavor.

Thirsty Dog Brewing Company

Labrador Lager

A- clear dark golden amber, dense white head with lots of drippy lace. Settles to thick ring and a thin membrane of foam.

S- sweetly malty with some caramel undertones. Fruity apple, pear, orange, watermelon rind, peach, white grape. Very mice stuff goin on here.

T- aroma transitions nicely to the flavor with a perfect hop flavor and bitterness. White pepper, sandalwood, All the fruity and grain components are here as well with grapefruit and pine from the hops. Sweet bready maltiness fades gracefully into a crisp sprucey And spicy hop finish.

MF- somewhere between light and medium bodied, totally crisp and refreshing with very tight carbonation similar to champagne but without the pricklies. Dries out a little still with a sweetish grain feel.

Postnote: out of the bottle and at a later date it was a bit too sweet so maybe the batch was too sugary or I'm just a nitpicker. Still love the thirsty dogg. Woof.

D- I could definitely knock over a 1/6 barrel of this stuff in a couple days. A Great offering from the boys in akrowdy. It's an agreeable beer for the lighter beer drinkers with enough flavor and complexity to please the real beer drinkers


Elevator Brewery

Dirty Dick's Nut Brown Ale

An American adaptation of a Northern English brown style, our nut brown ale features a deep mahogany color, rich malt character with toffee and chocolate barley malts combine to linger in a smooth finish.


Young's Double Chocolate Stout

The taste is a mix of Hershey/milk

chocolate, roasted

grain, light bitter coffee roast, and vanilla



A classic. Mainly

roasted malt, with a

touch of cream and

milk to it



The paradox of our

time in history is that

we have taller

buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less.

We buy more, but

enjoy less.

We have bigger

houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less

sense, more

knowledge, but

less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more

medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,

spend too recklessly, laugh too little,drive

too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much,

and pray too seldom.


have multiplied our possessions, but

reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate

too often. We've

learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years

to life not life to years.

We've been all the

way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We conquered outer space but not inner space.

We've done larger

things, but not better things. We've cleaned

up the air, but polluted

the soul. We've conquered the atom,

but not our prejudice.

We write more, but

learn less. We plan

more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait.

We build more

computers to hold

more information, to produce more copies

than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These

are the days of two incomes but more

divorce, fancier

houses, but broken homes.

These are days of

quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway orality, one night

stands, overweight bodies, and pills that

do everything from

cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there

is much in the

showroom window and nothing in the

stockroom. A time

when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you

can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit 'delete'.

Remember, spend

some time with your

loved ones, because

they are not going to

be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone, who looks up to you in awe, because that little

person soon will grow

up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one

next to you, because

that is the only

treasure you can give

with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say,

"I love you" to your

partner and your loved ones, but most of all

mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from

deep inside of you.Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday

that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak and give time to share the

precious thoughts in

your mind.

Live On Our Stage

Think of a Long Tall Cool Musical Drink Mix of ~ Jack Johnson, Sublime, Dave Matthews Band

Joe Moorhead Band

Like a Rum Soaked Cool Breeze Off An Island Shore, Joe Moorhead, offers a musical escape from the daily grind.

“Life Is A B ... each” for the band Joe Moorhead. Born in the most unlikely of places, the gritty urban jungle of Cleveland, Ohio, the band took their laid back attitude and tropical party mentality on the road playing college campuses, music festivals and venues throughout the Americas. Gathering up fans and building momentum along the way like a whipping island breeze about to transform into a tropical storm. An ever growing fan base of loyal fans already know the magic in the music of Joe Moorhead. And so should you.

Like Jack Johnson, Sammy Hagar and the Dave Mathews Band before them, Joe Moorhead creates a laid back groove with insightful lyrics about love and life from a wholly original sound that provides an escape from today's tough times. Not taking themselves too seriously (No Sting like attitude here) the band's shows are fun and original celebrations designed around escaping from the pains and horrors of the real world.
Ready for a musical trip? An around the world escape that is sure to free your mind and move your body? Then you're ready for Joe Moorhead.

Voted ‘BEST BLUES BAND IN CONNECTICUT' two years in a row in 2013 and 2014

Balkun Brothers


Balkun Brothers is an world renowned psychedelic blues-rock band hailing from Hartford, Connecticut (USA). Originally formed in 2010 by brothers Nick and Steve Balkun, Balkun Brothers has been described as,  “Spectacular torch-bearers for rockin' American blues… The band brings a raw, soulful and energetic personality that is a fresh sound for blues and rock 'n roll.”

Mixing traditional styles of delta and electric blues, with heavy modern rock and funk grooves, the Balkun Brothers are crafting a unique sound and style all their own. The band is fusing the past with the present and pushing the sonic bounds of blues into the future. Though the band's sound is deeply rooted in blues tradition, Balkun Brothers draw from a vast range of influences. The band's live shows and in-studio recordings seamlessly transition between blues, rock, funk, jam, psychedelia and everything in-between.

Founding members Steve Balkun (guitar/vocals) and Nick “The Hammer” Balkun (drums/percussion/vocals) are gaining followers across the world with their gritty hard-rockin' swagger. Balkun Brothers are becoming known for their explosive live shows and are quickly evolving into one of the United States' premier blues-rock acts.

Balkun Brothers was voted the  ‘2015 Best Overall Band In Connecticut', along with  ‘Best Blues Band In Connecticut'  three  years in a row, in 2015, 2014 and 2013, by  CT.com  and the  Connecticut Music Awards . The group also won the  2014 Connecticut Blues Society Band Challenge  and the  2013 Massachusetts Blues Society Solo/Duo Competition . As a solo act, Steve Balkun was named the winner of the  2012 Connecticut Blues Society Solo/Suo Competition , as well as being a grand finalist at the  2013 International Blues Challenge  in Memphis, TN. Steve, was also hand selected by blues-rock great, Joe Bonamassa, as a top ten finalist in the  2013 Guitar Center Bluesmasters Competition  and played with Joe Bonamassa and his band in Los Angeles, CA.

The band released their first self-produced studio EP “God Bless Our Fallout Shelter”  in September of 2013. The collection of only six songs was nominated for album of the year along with the first single  ‘Control Yourself'  for song of the year at the 2014  CTMA's . The EP was also named one of the top 50 albums of 2013 by  LonesomeNoise.com . This album has been followed up by two more EP's, “Bluesch Metal Live From The Baeschment”  and “ WE. IN. DETROIT.”,  both recorded live and proving the strong musicianship of the band and the vast array of musical genres that meld into Balkun Brothers' unique sound.

As Balkun Brothers continues to grow and progress, their following has expanded and an impressive touring schedule has featured them at a variety of festivals including: Summerfest (Milwaukee, WI), Strangecreek Campout Festival (Greenfield, MA), East Petersburg Blues Festival (East Petersburg, PA), 2 Left Feet Blues Festival (East Hartland, CT), Harry Brown's Hill Festival (Starks, ME), Yellow Phone Music Festival (Milwaukee, WI), Launch Music Festival (Lancaster, PA), Daytona Blues Festival (Daytona Beach, FL) and various others.

(of Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy)

Guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick return to Wilbert's for a night of jaw dropping music! Aside from their own solo work, Paul and Simon have been members of legendary drummer Carl Palmer's touring band for several years and have performed over 500 gigs in 30-plus countries around the world. Individually, they have also performed and toured with such musicians as Dream Theater, Neal Morse (of Spock's Beard), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Kee Marcello (Europe) and Les Paul. For this special show, Bielatowicz and Fitzpatrick will take you on a roller coaster ride of the most challenging classical virtuoso showpieces – all played as you've never heard them before!


Paul Bielatowicz is best known for his virtuoso guitar work with some of the biggest names in progressive rock. He's played, recorded and toured the world with the likes of Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia), Neal Morse (Spock's Beard), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big) and Les Paul…to name just a few. His 2014 debut solo album, "Preludes & Etudes," saw him stripping the electric guitar back to basics, presenting it as a classical instrument – no overdubs, effects or studio tricks: just a guitar, an old amp and raw virtuosity. 


Simon Fitzpatrick has toured and recorded with Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck), Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia), Joe Lynn-Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen), Kee Marcello (Europe) and Michael Hill (B.B. King) among others. Not content with simply being in the background, Fitzpatrick has always tried to take bass guitar playing as far as possible. Using all six strings of his extended range instrument, he performs as a lead player, a soloist or polyphonic accompanist. He has recently released his debut solo bass guitar album, "Reflections," in which he uses his virtuoso technique to recreate a wide variety of pieces and styles. You've never seen or heard a bass guitar played like this before.


(Original Prog/Jazz/Rock Influenced Music)

"CuDa, KrishNa & CuDa"

CuDa & CuDa was formed in 2006. We wanted to do something fresh and get away from playing covers. We wanted to integrate all of our great musical influences and combine them with our own unique personalities and see what would happen. Our efforts resulted in 3 CD's and concert performances with Adrian Belew, Tony Levin, Alan Holdsworth, Carl Palmer, Project Object (Zappa Alum) and many others.

alternative americana roots from Cincinnati

Red Idle Rejects

Country Music Magazine Review

Steve Bowling is the singer and main songwriter of the Red Idle Rejects, who were just called ... , Red Idle. The name was changed after the band members initially rejected the songs on the new CD, as “too country”. They are not. Can a song be, too country? Probably not, for readers of this magazine. The press release for the disc, calls it a concept album, telling the tale of, “an Appalachian who moves to the city only to discover heartache, but ultimate triumph, found therein”. All ten songs do stand on their own as well.

First song, Mean Dry County, which is also a single, has a country/rock “n” roll feel, and Steve Bowling really “attacks” the tune with lots of passion. The track, Ruthie, is a stunner: a dark bluesy country song with a timeless feel. It's a foot-tapping delight featuring a nagging guitar that gets in your head, and let's not forget the fiddle. Wonderful!

The band may have got nervous about the CD's final three songs, all of which are pure, real country. Where The Lonely Reside has a classic crying-in-your-beer feel, Simple Blue sounds like Commander Cody at his most country, and A Mountain track, with added banjo. The album does have one rock song, Divorce,sounds a little like The Jefferson Airplane with a punk edge. This is one of the better rock tracks of recent years. The song also throws up a dilemma for The Red Idle Rejects. Clearly they can do

quality rock and country, but which way should they go? The more traditional country songs here are so strong, that the country road seems the one the band need to be on.

Steve Bowling is a real find, a very high quality songwriter, with a strong voice, a little over-the-top at times, but it works. Red Idle have performed a fair number of covers, including a very reasonable version of Fleetwood Mac's Black Magic Woman, but any band who has a songwriter of Steve Bowling's talent should be performing, all or mainly original songs. That way the band will create their own identity. This seems to be the way forward. The Red Idle Rejects have clearly got something, it would be a great pity if they lost it. ....Country Music People,

Tennessee Southern Blues, Soul, Old School R & B, Boogie from Nashville

John Sutton Band

John Sutton has been rocking the Southeast and Midwest for the past 15 years building his ever expanding fan base. Three piece (sometimes 4), in your face, get you involved rock, country, blues, soul, r&b ... John, Kidd, Eric and Matthew bring vast stage experience to their performances. These Tennessee based boys are at home on any stage. Their latest album 'The World' is bring new excitement to every venue.

Their music is influenced by people with soul and groove, old and new. Al Green, JJ Grey & Mofro, Eric Church, Buddy Guy, George Strait, Robert Crey, Otis, Soulive, G Love, James Brown, Subdudes, Jack Johnson, Gov't Mule, Big Head Todd, for example and the list goes on. “We are true fans of Soulful music!!!” states Sutton.

To quote a review in The Nashville Underground Music Scene, “Three guys who moved to Nashville to be apart of a thriving music scene that they are rarely part of due to their excessive road schedule. Their performances are fun, exciting, and full of great playing.”

Over the past 15 years JSB has been performing for any and all crowds throughout the Southeast and Midwest turning their shows into crowd sing-alongs with both their original and cover music. From club to private party to festival this band loves to perform. As the band has grown, JSB has been through several line up changes. This JSB is truly at home on stage and on the road. A band of professional minded musicians they share a common goal of entertaining everyone who is kind enough to pay them a listen.

Their songs are written in such a way that the purpose of the lyric is not lost in the live jam. Always fun!!! Always a party!!! Always a jam!!! The music comes first right along side the fans of their music. A truly appreciative band, with all the love and support they are getting from their fans, JSB is in this for the long haul. Rock!!! Country!!! Southern Rock!!! Blues!!! Soul!!! Rhythm & Blues!!! Music for the lovers of music

FYI-All shows are all ages and the kitchen is open until I go home!
