Really cool place. Great atmosphere, buzzing, with great food and a good beer list. Great for just a drink or a big meal.

I started going here about 18 years ago when I was 21 and havent been able to drink bud light ever since. The food has always been great and the tap list is the best if you like variety and rare breeds. Live a couple hours away now and still make the trip at least once a year.

im lucky to have this place so close to home. very cool place located in an old church. the food menu isnt huge but the food is incredible. they smoke their own meats, have a great raw bar on occasion and makes some of the best mac and cheese there is. the tap list i think is usually around 35-40 beers that include some of the best and rarest in the country. what a great place, i might go there right now.

A really great bar. Converted from an old church, the restaurant always has 20-30 beers on tap. The food is great, if limited selection. Try the famous mac and cheese!

This former church has found a higher calling. This multi-tap has food pairings that are to die for and there is a crying room for the recently departed. No matter when I go here the place is always packed and always outstanding. Very highly recommended.

I guess Iím a little biased, because Iím a Clarkston local, but it really is a great restaurant. Lots and lots of beer on tap, and heavy on the MI beers, which makes me a very happy girl. The staff is relativity knowledgeable about the beers, but i wouldnít say they give the best recommendations. The food is delicious, everyone should try the mac & cheese, but the grilled cheese is my favorite. It is a nice place to have lunch, but it gets packed for dinner. There is also a good chance you will see Kid Rock having dinner. The prices are steep but the selection is worth it. If you are traveling N on i-75, get off on exit 91 and go to the Union!

Stopped in for a beer after work, first time Iíd been there. Very cool place, an old converted church. Nice vibe inside. Huge selection of taps, and very focused on Michigan - about 6 Bells taps and maybe 5 from Shorts. A snifter of Hopslam was $6, so not the greatest value, but it was sweet to have it on tap. Iíll be back.

This is such a wonderful place with as many as 40 brews on tap.....and the menu is outstanding! The also have a very good bottle selection and wine list as well. Dont forget to go downstairs as well for pool and jukebox, with another smaller bar with more selections on draft an bottle. The staff is also very freindly and realitivly knowledge, they will let you know some of the opinions they have and can awnser questions as well.The best thing is that I litterally live across the street....like less than 40 yards from the front door.....and I am fortunate to do so.
