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).

We were there for an early dinner. A decent environment, but I found it a little off-putting for some reason I canít put my finger on. The only beers on tap were the five "regular" beers, nothing special. My porter was about average, but sounded like the most interesting thing available. The other selections were an Irish red, a dry stout, a pale ale, and a "light." I ordered the Spanish chorizo pizza, which sounded pretty interesting; it was good, but I actually thought it would have been better without the chorizo. Service was mixed: we had to ask three times for a soft drink, but the waitress was helpful in checking about the ingredients in the food. I wouldnít mind coming back, but Iíd probably like to check out one of the other local breweries first if I were back in Traverse.

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.

The service is always good Iíve been here a few times. I have the white chicken Ale soup and it is now my favorite. Had the sample beer tray and all were drinkable but nothing over the top great

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.

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 in a cool, old building that used to be a candy factory. It is located at the end of Front Street, which is full of shops and restaurants. It is a block off the water, making the location that much better. While the exterior has character, alot is lost on the interior. The brewhouse can be seen through large glass windows when you enter, but a turn up the stairs in the bar leads you into a chain-like enviroment. The service was great. We sat in the bar which had four plasma TVs on each side of the rectangular bar. The beer list is standard, offering the usual light, pale, porter, red, etc. A few seasonables were also available as well as a barrel-aged porter. We tried a few of the standards which were good but nothing too special. We were there in the afternoon on a Saturday and took advantage of the $2.50/pint happy hour. This was for both regulars and seasonals. Food was available and while the menu looked interesting, we didnít eat. Overall, a nice experience that comes off somewhat standard in the grand scheme of things. Worth a visit if you are in town.

Had the wings, they were excellent. Atmosphere was great. Food menu was good. Beer selection thought was minimal. Had a Holy Hop Ipa was ok, the Cask served was an IPA cask ale, was mellow, decent. Overall beer choices was minimal. Server was great food server, but lacked overall beer service expertise.

Only went once but service was good. They had delicious pizza and a good atmosphere. They had an ok selection of brew, but didnít have any IPAís on tap! I had an aged stout on hand pull and it was great. To top it off the beer was cheap, only $2 a piece. I hope to make it back their again.
