Large, open seating and bar area, kind of has a dimly lit lounge feel to it. Impressive coaster collection on the bar. Several taps with two cask engines, which of course were dry on this late April Monday afternoon. Had several bottles to go with reasonable prices. The draft Coco Loco and DIPA were noteworthy. Seemed like an ok place to kick back and have a beer.

Weird ambiance. It’s a large building with a very open floor plan, but it looked like something went wild and tried to design the interior themselves... I mean it seemed like there were walls where there shouldn’t be and no walls where there should be walls. The bar was in a very open side of the big room, and the dining area looked like it was through together. Imagine setting up a restaurant inside a warehouse with no walls or anything and that’s kind of how it was strange. Other than that, it was a decent place. Tap list of all of their common stuff, but I think we got the cherry Coco Loco without them telling us it was different than the regular version. I asked if they had the Hop Rocket on tap and they said no, then 20 minutes later I see it in cases and 4-packs over by the merchandise - thanks for letting me know about that, pal. I might have missed it if not for dumb luck. Visited on a Saturday around noon so the place was dead, but the bartender was talkative and friendly, just not exactly the most informed person you’d meet at a brewpub.

I was a little worried when we pulled into the back parking lot that this place was going to be rather "unfinished", but I was entirely impressed. Quite a huge place with a long, angular bar atop a smooth cement floor. Beer labels everywhere, as well as a nice section of work by local artists. A brick oven cooks away in an "open" kitchen area. The brewing operation is viewable through large glass windows. English loft-like atmosphere. 3 steel-tip boards up front. Huge, clean bathrooms. "Alternative" overhead, but unobtrusive. Younger crowd, everyone very pleasant. My wife and I got the "nickel-tour" from Bryan Wiggs which lasted about a half-hour. Great guy. My only disappointment was they were out of Scotch Ale and there was nothing on cask.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. One of my favorite places that I’ve ever gone to. The place itself was a nice looking bar (the longest bar in the city, apparently), and it had a nice window looking over the brewing equipment. The regular beers that Arcadia brews were pretty good, but their "big beers" (i.e imperial stout, Shipwreck Porter, and Hopmouth) are amazing. The service was phenominal, from the prompt and knowledgable bartender to the head brewer Bryan, who came out and talked to us and even gave us a really nice tour of the brewery (along with a couple other samplings not normally available). We didn’t eat food here (besides pretzel rods). All in all, a great place with great people. If I’m ever in the vicinity again, I will definitely make a return visit.

Interior is pretty cool. Brick lined. Large bar with vintage beer labels/coasters sealed under the countertop. Bar is oak; would be a little more attractive with something else. Selection was pretty wide. One beer they sell is "yellow, fizzy ale" or something to that effect. They take their pale ale and pour some carbonated water into it. Makes it taste like Bud Light. Apparently they sometimes have bombers of rare Arcadia brews for sale, but none when I was there. The bartender was captain clueless when it came to beer. I hope it was because he was new. Brewpubs/breweries need people who are knowledgeable about their beer behind the counter.

Easy to find location directly downtown Battle Creek. Street parking. Building is clean and orderly with brewing and bottling on the right behind glass. Bar on left in the back and seating for food on the left front with a wood pizza oven. Bar has taps in the middle. Staff is freindly with good beer knowledge. Menu is pizza and sandwich selections. I had the Reuben, large portion,very good. Good location, beer selection and food. Well worth the stop.

Their beers on tap here are much better than the bottled variety. Even though you can see their bottling line on premises. Spacious, but expertly cluttered downtown storefront. I happened to come in during their 10th Anniversary, so even though their big specialties weren’t yet on tap, I came away with some in bottles. Nicely smoked beef brisket. Sampler is decently priced. Another stop on the I-94 trail o’ beer.

This is a decent brewpub. Atmosphere is a mix of English culture surrounded with brewing paraphenallia. Acoustics are ok, and the beer selection is a mix of their seasonals and classics. I remember the wood oven pizza being good last time.

Ok, this place is cool. unfortunately, the beer from this place is just not good. i just cant stand ringwood yeast and they use it in just about all their beers. The porter is definately the highlight. i had a sample of the shipwrecked porter out of the bottle which was not bad. cool atmosphere in this place with some very intersting people around. I would go back if they improve their beer.

Visited following the MI Brewer’s Guild Festival. A nice, spacious brewpub, with a good atmosphere. The tap selection wasn’t anything too special, and the bottles for sale consisted off their regular lineup. The chicken quesadillas weren’t too bad. Kellogg’s Cereal City is right down the road.
