Awesome tap list, awesome bottle list (expensive), awesome menu. Sometimes a pain in the ass to get a table, especially during busy times & on the weekends. But worth the effort. Get the "Grand Royal" if youíre hungry. Itís a sloppy joe literally covered in thick, cheesy beer sauce. I donít mean the meat, the ENTIRE sandwich is covered in it. Service has varied from acceptable to good, I think it depends on how busy they are. All in all, a must-stop if youíre in Grand Rapids.

Cool place in downtown area with easy parking nearby. Sat at the bar on a Wednesday night, probably found the last seat in the place. Fast, helpful service. Great beer selection and served well. Good food - crack fries were awesome. A little pricy but otherwise a nice place. Would go back.

On November 2013, the place was crowded, service was slow, the selection was nice but a bit pricy. Every time someone was getting out or in we were freezing big time, so we move further near the bar and there we were losing an once of our precious liquid every time some one was passing by. So we went somewhere else.

Great old building with huge selection of draft beers and bottles - local, national, and international beers. Service was insanely quick sitting at the bar - there were a dozen people behind the bar buzzing back and forth - you donít have to wait long. A well-deserved reputation.

Great place to get a brew downtown with equally great burgers. Ambiance is great, but packed every time I have ever been there. Nice selection of beers, but their personal beers have been spotty availability at best from my experience.

Right down town near Founders. House brew was really nice with a very impressive tap and bottle list. Food was very tasty and service was on top of everything. We sat outside because it was hopping inside. Would have liked to have stayed longer but after 4 days and 11 breweries Iím a little beered out.

This was a cool spot to check out.Slammed due to NHC but still got good service from friendly people. Sweet ass bar stools too, coolest Iíve sat sat on. Good selection with a lot of locals and some house made offerings. Had a good burger too.

Service is atrocious. Been there multiple times with varying groups of people and every experience except one was poor. Usually they have a good selection of beer on tap and the food is good but thatís not enough to make me want to go there any more than I already have. Quite a shame considering the potential.

Visited on a trip to Grand Rapids. Large bar with seating inside and outside. Large tap list of their own beers plus many MI locals. Constantly rotating tap list and a solid bottle list. The food was not my cup of tea or for many of us at the table that day. The selection was great and the fact you can do tasters make it even better to try a bunch of new locals. Overall, a brewpub I would frequent if in that area for the beer more than the food but worth the visit regardless. Recommended.
