Small bar atmosphere with an upstairs & a lower deck. Pretty good selection of beers, above average for the most part with a couple tankers as well as a couple awesome beers that show up every now & again. The mainstays are decent, too. Have been here millions of times but have never had the food aside from the popcorn. Good service, good place to hang out & have a few pints.
GREAT place to go to talk, have a pint, and play a game of Scrabble or Apples to Apples. Two floors--downstairs tends to be a bit louder, since more people congregate there, although they occasionally have shows upstairs. Beer is good and well-priced. $1 bottomless popcorn with hot sauce is great, with some decent pizzas and appetizers (though the foodís a bit overpriced for what it is). Can order food in from other places.

Pretty cool place, love the decor and setup. Solid beers and a good time. Place is packed with musical acts and lots of fun. No TVs though.
A nice little brewpub with a nice ambiance and crowd. Gets a bit crowded on weekend. A good selection of beer with a cider or two at times. Samplers available. Service can be a bit slow when busy. Minimal food but they allow you to order in.
Pretty nice place. Decent beer (even though everything I was hoping to try wasnít on tap when I visited). Friendly staff, I was given the "Itís pretty bitter!" answer when I ordered the IPA---so what? Who cares that Iím a girl! I probably wonít visit again because of the weird location, but Iíll still try their beers when I see them around MI, even if they are bitter.
Small brewpub with an upstairs that I did not venture into. Sat at the bar and had 5 sample and a pint of C-Monster. Beers I had were pretty average overall. Pizza was nothing was nothing special and service was decent. Real nice building and cool little pub. Located in cool little downtown area. Has potential but an average brewpub at this point. Still worth a stop though.
Always great service when Iím in. Knowledgeable and friendly bartenders. Great beer - Iím especially fond of the IPA. The owners/brewers are frequently present and engaged with the patrons.
This place has a great "neighborhood" feel to it. The main taproom is small, intimate, and well-adorned with dark wood. Thereís an upstairs open on weekends which houses a larger number of people and has live music.
Food selection is limited. I havenít tried it, so I didnít rate it, but if the menu isnít diverse enough for your tastes, you can have outside food delivered from neighborhood restaurants.
I really want to like this place but canít. We checked it out shortly after it opened and were disappointed, so we waited several years and went back again last night hoping it would have matured. It has not.
The ambiance is very nice and itís obvious that they want to do things right, but the product is just not drinkable. Maybe the problem has something to do with cleanliness of the yeast that the brewmaster is using, but all the beers have a sour, harsh bite to them that is not due to hoppiness or roasting. I was especially disappointed in the Pub House Brown, which is credited with having won an award, although they donít say from whom. It is described as having "plenty of malt character and lower hop presence" and I was hoping for a good session beer. It was sour and harsh. The same for the Stout. And the Amber. The only beer I would even consider ordering a pint of would be the American IPA where the nice helping of hops helps to drown out the sourness.
The food was no better. We ordered the Chicken Tenders, which were cold and mushy. Lastly, the service was no reason to come here, either. While the bartenders were attentive, they were obviously unenthusiastic about what they were doing, and showed little interest in talking about the beers or anything else, for that matter.
Iíve also marked it down in value, not because itís expensive (which itís not), but because nothing had I had (with the possible exception of the American IPA) is worth paying anything for.
I donít expect every Michigan brewpub to match the quality of New Holland, Bellís, Arbor or Shortís, but this place canít even touch Royal Oak Brewing, whose beers are quite serviceable, if not daring. Itís a shame, because Liberty Street seems to have so much potential, but it clearly has the worst beer in the area, IMO.
