Awsome place! Loved everything about it. Clean, modern, bathrooms are sweet, the menues are easy to follow. Sample sizes available. nice extensive selection of bottles. Great crowd, nice outdoor area. Even though Grand Rapids is all that, this place is. Wish I had this place in Chicago. i was overwhelmed with it all. A few of the brews on the tap list were not available and they did not have Expidition Stout either, but still a great selection. A beer lovers dream.

very chill atmosphere, nice artwork and appropriately dim lights. servers are hit-and-miss. either really knowledgable and attentive, or totally clueless and useless. selection is probably the best in town, really great selection of local/michigan beers, plus a great group of others. food is above average, especially the crack fries.

The most interesting beer menu in Grand Rapids (if not Michigan) as far as beer bars are concerned. Over 30 carefully selected taps. No boring stuff and at least half the selection goes off the beaten path (beaten path being classics like Dogfish 90 minutes, Fouderís Red Rye, etc.). Atmosphere is cool, really cool. Quite an extensive bottle menu too and they have license to take out. The place is actually rather large and with lots of room between the tables. The place can probably sit a little over 100 but packed it can probably hold 200 with people standing. Super-large screen projector tv, ambiance on a Sunday night was Alien (the first of the series) at high volume.

Awsome stop to try out Michigan beers with limited distrobution. The taplist is quite impressive. Also an extensive list of bottles. Really comfortable atmosphere. They have a relaxing smokers lounge upstairs with couches. Old school darts are free to use. I didnít try out the food, but the menu looked good. The staff knew what they were doing and were quick and very helpful. A must stop in Grand Rapids.

Directly on Ionia Street with parking lot on the side and street parking. Clean brick and wood older building with bar on right and tables in front and on the left. Forty plus taps with list on chalk board on wall. All were drinkable brews with many Michigan selections. Freindly bartender and staff with good knowledge. Was shown a location in lower level for future brewing operation. Interesting selection of distilled products. Reviewed good menu, but did not have food. Interesting location and well worth the visit.

Good selection of bottles and draft. Staff is knowledgeable and very helpful if you love beer these guys will do anything to help you out. The only food that I tried was crack fries which were very good. Great atmosphere. Downside is that they are always packed at peak times. A must see in GR.
