beautiful oaked room, absorbs acoustics well and feels homey. service was attentive and smiley, never annoying. never required testing their beer knowledge so that was not relevant but may be to others. selection was excellent with numerous in house handles and 3 true coolers full of 750s and more, the selection of a decent (albeit small) liquor store inside a brewpub? swell! food was good -- i had a reuben, my friend the fish and chips. we both commented that the portions were smaller but then again we were sated and it was made up for by the fact that hardly a thing on the menu was over $10 which is ludicrous by chicago or other big city (or...anywhere!) standards. great spot, met my expectations and i would gladly return.

Right down town near Founders. House brew was really nice with a very impressive tap and bottle list. Food was very tasty and service was on top of everything. We sat outside because it was hopping inside. Would have liked to have stayed longer but after 4 days and 11 breweries Iím a little beered out.

This was a cool spot to check out.Slammed due to NHC but still got good service from friendly people. Sweet ass bar stools too, coolest Iíve sat sat on. Good selection with a lot of locals and some house made offerings. Had a good burger too.

Service is atrocious. Been there multiple times with varying groups of people and every experience except one was poor. Usually they have a good selection of beer on tap and the food is good but thatís not enough to make me want to go there any more than I already have. Quite a shame considering the potential.

Visited on a trip to Grand Rapids. Large bar with seating inside and outside. Large tap list of their own beers plus many MI locals. Constantly rotating tap list and a solid bottle list. The food was not my cup of tea or for many of us at the table that day. The selection was great and the fact you can do tasters make it even better to try a bunch of new locals. Overall, a brewpub I would frequent if in that area for the beer more than the food but worth the visit regardless. Recommended.

I gave low selection just because they dont brew a lot of there own beers. This is a great bar.

I visited here over the weekend on 11/23/2013. I was very let down. I really, truly donít understand how this place rates so highly. It was filled to the brim, loud as hell (making it difficult to have even the simplest of conversations), and the tap list really wasnít that impressive. We stayed for one beer and an appetizer. Although the loaded crack fries were excellent, thatís all we tried. The service was ok, but had to flag the waitress down a couple times. The beer prices were very reasonable. I guess I like the uncrowed gems instead...
