Great selection, service and food. One of the best beer joints in TC.

Very well laid out space in an old building in TC and well suited to finding and drinking good beer and especially rare Belgians (which are pricey as one might expect). Great choice of Michigan brews as well. I did not eat there, but others in my group thought the food could have been better.

Great beer bar. One of the best in Michigan. The manager (owner?) if friendly and knowledgeable. Talk to him if you sit at the bar.

Newish and slightly clinical beerpub with that airy industrial feel to it even when it fills up just before midnight closing time. College crowd buzz and assertive singer songwriters make orders at the bar monosyllabic. Hit-and-miss aloof or enthused service from overall just above college-age barmaids and -men; single samples from an impressive local & imported tap list available with each new order. Slightly overpriced typical bar food in decent quality.

really confusing menu that lists by style then drafts, then bottles, not easy to read which drafts their are. Closes at midnight wtf, dead crowd, but look and feel was nice. Selection was ok but nothing rar. I guess if I was trapped in TC Iíd go there but I hope I never have to go back.

Definitely need to come back and check out the food. The selection is nuts of course: 46 taps with all kinds of rare stuff, lots of Michigan beer, lots of strong beers. Very much a college vibe, at least when we were there at 10:00 pm on a Wednesday. Servers are helpful, but busy because the place is packed. Got Bellís 11 and Arcadia Warkraft on tap, so thatís cool with me. Nicely done interior. Must visit for any beer geek in the TC area. Prices are somewhat high for some things, but rarity is usually the reason.

Very nice, spacious place, all clean and new. One cool display case has a bottle from each of the 7 Trappist breweries (not a coincidence I imagine) along with the corresponding glasses. Selection of beers is quite good, mostly Michigan and/or Belgian-style beers. Definitely the best selection in the area. Didnít try the food, but I can say it smelled really good. Menu was more expansive than I had expected. Our server was very attentive and willing to help with selections if needed. (Back of the place was full service, front was service at the bar, at least when we were there.) Certainly will be back.

Update from 23-Sep-2013 visit: Food is amazing. Had the sriracha-maple wings and the Kobe burger (daily special). Awesome. Especially with a bottle of Tilquin Gueuze.

Great place to get "that" brew that you have beenlooking for on tap for a long time. If it is not one tap they have full cooler with imports and micro brews by the bottle. Itís a new place and a little busy so sometimes the service is slow but the servers are VERY knowledgeable about their beers.

Are you kidding me? Been waiting for this place for a long time. Taps change daily. Apparently theyíre about to do some tap takeover nights, etc. A MUST when in Traverse City! Try the Abbey Burger!
