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.

Geno Ivey looks back on the last four years as his pizza shop celebrates an anniversary and credits much of Contessa's success to its faithful customers
Contessa's Pizzeria owner Geno Ivey says one of the most important things about running a restaurant is that the customers have to be happy, and they have to be having fun. That's obviously what he's doing. Anyone who's dined inside the restaurant at 6630 Wise Ave. has probably heard a joke or two from Ivey as he cranks out dish after dish, clocking 80-some hours a week. Ivey talked to North Canton Patch recently about what has made the business a success as it celebrates four years of serving up Italian dishes. "We've come a long way in four years — from knowing nothing about the business," said Ivey, who'd been selling cars for 27 years before opening up Contessa's. "A lot of stuff we learned on the fly. Customers helped a lot with …

The auto shop has ditched the old brick look for something a little more modern — some might say a little fancier and a little brighter — this summer, and it's been a big hit with the community, manager Kerri Wolf said.

Other improvements, in addition to the new exterior, started with a new roof because, with the old one, it "poured inside when it rained," Wolf said. Other …
