A cool brewpub in a huge historic building in downtown Grand Rapids. Open and spacey. The service is good and they have a solid selection, but the beer is pretty pedestrian. They have food, and although we didnít eat, itís owned by Bar Fly Ventures, so Iím sure itís good. Right around the corner from HopCat, and worth a stop if youíre in the area.

Stopped in for my last sampling of the night, about 10pm. Not busy and bartender was very friendly and chatty - offered me a few different samples and knew about the styles. Would go back.

This place is located near the arena, It is a happening spot and can get quite busy. This place seems more touristy than hopcat and their beers reflect this. Ok spot i guess.

This is a great brewery. The food is amazing, they make there own sausage in house and get all their products from Michigan. The location is perfect right in the heart of the Grand Rapids bar district. The building and feel of the place is really cool. They dont have the best beer in Grand Rapids but it is still good and I try to get in there anytime I am in GR.

Loud, crowded. Otherwise, cozy atmosphere. "Organic" beers--interesting. Decent selection of beer (and full bar, for those in your party who havenít yet learned to appreciate craft brews) that they brew. Interesting food selections (gastropub chic, Iíd say). All a bit pricey, but solid. Their website seems to be very out of date with their selection choices--we skipped dessert somewhere else to try the beer gelato they mentioned on the website. Waitress said they hadnít had it in months and "someone better change our site."

I wound up going here twice due to other people enjoying the atmosphere. The place is large although it does tend to get crowded in the evenings. Service was timely and the wait staff is knowledgeable about what is available. Selection may vary but it looked like five regular beers and three special taps most of the time. Prices are a little expensive though in line with a typical upscale brewpub. If you are going to Hopcat it is worth crossing the street for a look and a few ticks before you move on to other bars.

The picture currently shown is the old place. They are now down town. It was crowded - to the gills, when I went. Beer was fine - a had a flight. But nothing special. And almost not worth the hassle of al the hipster people. Donít go on a weekend evening.

Visited 06.21.2013 on Beer Tip 2013. After Hopcat this place looks more chill but still cool. The beer Is pretty good, and The wait staff rocks. They do flights and my buddies do a few too many. But overall a good place. Now to bed and then some KBS and on to the Lake

Gets really crowded on weekends. I stopped in for lunch on a weekday, and it wasnít nearly as bad. Service was good.

Stopped after game at Van andel, this is right next door, down the street from hop cat and the BOB. Nice crowd, service was good. Had okish food. Had 10 on draft, a great pils, a really good rye PA, a good nut brown and Ipa, an ok black lager (tough style), and okish hefeweizen. The other 4 beers sucked. They do samples and had some good choices, be sure to taste before ordering with the wide variability of their beers.
