A "cool place" in a buzy 20s/30s hangout. The view of the bay is georgious, and currently three good craft brew places to go. More or less standard beer offerings and quality. Service was consistent with the type of place it was, with some sensitivity to craft beer. But, hey, people ordering mixed hard liquor is the the target market.

Located downtown. Large service area with a bar in the middle with the brewing operations in the front. Service was good and the server knew the brews. Sampler is good of the standards and had three seasonal brews. Did not get to eat but the menu was good broad selection of standard corporate and local grill selections. Met the brewmaster, she was a knowledgeable free spirit. Well worth a visit.

This is a brewpub/restaurant (but more of a restaurant) in downtown Traverse City. There is a large wraparound bar and several TVs, giving it a sports bar look as well. There were not that many taps on when I was there (maybe 8 at most but I think there were less than that) and all were the basic beer styles (amber, pale ale, stout, etc). The beer was not that great either. I ordered a pizza and it was pretty tasty, so at least there was that. But overall, not a beer destination (definitely just go to Right Brain and skip Mackinaw and North Peak, unless you are in Traverse City for a long time and are running out of things to do).

Has food, but I didnít eat. Had the sampler. Nice staff, nice old building. Patio and bar seating. Worth a stop, as the sampler gives you 8 different brews and they arenít bad, on the whole.

A very nice rather upscale brewpub. They only have a few brews on draft including one on cask. All I tried were very good. The food however, is outstanding. Worth the stop just to eat here. I was not expecting such great food! Everything we tried was top notch. Service was very quick. Prices were very reasonable. A must see in traverse city.

Very nice and large converted warehouse. Ample seating. Very kid friendly. Food was very good. Beer not extraordinary but solid. A nice place for a meal.

Place had a nice patio with live music and a bar as well as a large restaurant with a big rectangular bar in the front of the dining area. Brewing equipment is visible when you walk in, but not prominent in the decor. A mix of typical brewpub and modern restaurant decor. Menu has a nice variety from pizza to seafood and steaks, and the appetizers and hanger steak I had were good, but not exceptional by any means. Nice place, enjoyed the sampler which was uninspired but well made beers. Unfortunately they were out of the Cask IPA they had on their beer board. I did not enjoy their seasonal Saison, and found the Irish Lager to be a little boring, but a great place for the area, and it seems like theyíre trying to brew some good stuff. Service was good all around. Update as of April 2011. Visited again and left with a similar impression, though enjoyed the beers more this time around, and found some more interseting options.

Pretty average, chain feeling place. Servers donít know much about beer... mainly a restaurant with a few beers. Okay if you are looking for that.

Fairly busy, but service was very attentive - note that I have heard of friends who had a different experience with service than mine. Most of the tourists flock to the mediocre pub/brewery down the street thankfully. Ordered a sandwich, Fries, and a couple pints. Food is fairly good, though only a handful of NP beer were available when i was there. The IPA here on tap was VERY fresh. Sure, Right Brain blows this and most places out of the water, but the Peak is still worth a visit before heading to the superior Jolly Pumpkin and the Brain.

Next time I visit Traverse City I am going directly to Right Brain and will stay planted there until it is time to go back home. No need to bother with a boring brewpub whose staff canít be bothered to make eye contact or actually speak with customers. My guess is this is a place known for its food. Critical errors included mislabeling which beer was on cask and not providing water with the sampler flight.
