Willoughby Brewing & Pickle Bills

Willoughby Brewing Company
Bookending yesterday's trip to Headlands beach were trips to Willoughby Brewing and Pickle Bills. Willoughby Brewing Company is a brewpub/restaurant in Willoughby(obviously). Their beers were absolutely fantastic and we had some great pizza there too. Its a large place with an industrial feel - we ate out at the bar on the covered patio. Their Peanut Butter Cup Coffee Porter is a must try. 
After Willoughby and a walk on the beach we stopped by Pickle Bills in Grand River(probably only a quarter mile from Headlands Beach). Pickle Bills seems to be two places - the seafood restaurant on the first floor and the patio bar on the roof. Since we already ate we had a few beers upstairs. It was pouring rain off and on but the area immediately around the bar was covered. We sat out enjoying the view of the river and Marina. I can imagine the place draws quite the crowd on a pretty Summer evening. It actually had the feel of being on vacation somewhere on the east coast. We'd like to get back and try the food soon.
The people sitting next to us at Willoughby Brewing were getting their growlers filled to head to a party. Samples
