Excellent selection on the taps. Bottle list is good too but a little expensive. Nice all wood interior with a small outdoor patio gives the place a nice inviting atmosphere. Wait staff was fast. Best of all, they will allow you to take home growlers on most anything on tap. This is definitely one of the better beer bars in the state.

By far the standard for the Grand Rapids Area Beer scene. 50 taps of better beer, including a firkin that is regularly kept busy. A sassy yet knowledgeable wait staff and an extremely impressive bottle selection to go with the tap selection. The bottle reserves have things some people will never see again. My only regret is that it isnít closer to my house.

Nice dark wood interior, I didnít do much research on this placed and was pleasantly surprised that they have a small brewing operation. Lots of taps, nice selection. Trendy crowd in a lively bustling space, beer garden doesnít hurt Prompt service. Draughts included Founders, Livery, GI, some Belgians. A well rounded selection. Good value on diverse choice of pints, lots of Michigan choices. Food was above average pub fare.

Finally got a chance to check this place out after I left Founders. Great vibe going on, good service, very good selection and a really cool upstairs lounge-type area. Will definitely return.

Great bar. The selection is awesome, they usually have a few things not available in bottles and itís the only bar in Michigan I know of that will fill growlers.

Very cool.. great selection. Decor could not be much better, they must have sunk a ton of money into the place. I have been there 4 times and the service was really poor every time. (Got up and left after waiting over ten minutes to be served on the last and final visit) All four visits were at slow early Sunday afternoon times to boot with multiple severs present!?!? I really want to give a better review and root for the place but I just can’t stand such bad service.

Fantastic beer selection, very good food, and a KILLER facility. 48 taps with 150 bottles and the bar is a piece of art. Bartenders are friendly and attentive. Very nice place to relax and enjoy the vibe, beers, and good conversation.

Thankfully I stopped bye on my way to Founders. This place is a great sophisticated beer bar. Great selection of Michigan beer. I consider myself a bit of a veggie chili coinsurer might have had the best with some great draft beer.
