CLEVELAND — Cleveland is a city passionate about sports, there’s no question about that. But one sport that doesn’t get much attention in the area is curling—until now.

At Platform Beer Co., several curling leagues have been started at the brewery’s new outdoor entertainment area called “The Lot.”

“It’s cold enough here. We’re very into athletics and sports,” said Platform Beer Co.’s founder Paul Benner. “It’s just a way for people to be outside. Do something while they’re having a drink and maybe something they’ve never done before.”

The brewery has set up two rinks at The Lot for leagues to hold matches while also introducing the public to the sport.

“Anytime that we don’t have leagues, which is Friday and Saturday, we have open play for people. So if it's just something you want to come and try out, feel free to stop by,” Benner said.

In addition to curling, Platform Beer Co. has set up igloos, shipping containers and live music events to create a socially distant entertainment spot.

Platform Beer Co. is located at 4125 Lorain Ave. in Cleveland.
