A couple years ago, Brannigan Brothers put more emphasis on acquiring great beers for their taps and in bottles. Apparently, this move did not yield results, as the establishment parted ways with their lone beer evangelist and has since reduced the number of craft beers on tap. Still, there are usually 3-5 good brews on draft, usually something from Founders, Bells, and Stone, among others. The food menu is extensive and prices are fairly low, but inconsistent quality and temperature limit that rating. Good atmosphere, smoky when busy, but that will change with the 2010 smoking ban. This and MBC are the two best options for good beer in downtown Lansing.

This is one cool place.
Always undergoing change, visitors can expect to find something different every time they walk through the door. have a beer you really like but can’t find in a pub setting? they’ll order it for you. they have a large selection of seasonal beers AND they’ve been known to cellar some just to see how well they age. check this place out it’s truly one of Lansing’s hidden gems.
