This is a chill little brewery tucked away in a brick building near the river. Beer selection is a little quirky with interesting stuff. I had a tasty pineapple IPA. There is no real food available, just some chips. They have a load of different mugs adorning the back wall perhaps for regulars. They also seem to have an affinity for the mythical jackalope which reminded me of back in TN. Cool place.

In area for business and did a tour of Holland to Spring Lake to Grand Rapids.
This is easy to find with good parking even during tourist gatherings. On first floor of old factory building downtown. Bar on left with hooks and mugs on wall with tables on the right. Very freindly staff with no written knowledge of full names, styles or ABV. Selection of beers is good and taste was complex and good. Snacks can be purchased on site or food can be carried in. Enjoyed the visit and will return when in Grand Rapids for RBSG.

I stumbled upon this place one day on ratebeer and I’m very glad I did. It’s tucked inside an old building they’ve turned into a mall. You could easily walk by the building and not even know there was a brewpub in there as advertising on the outside was scarce. That’s a shame, as there are probably people who would have a pint or two if they knew it was there. They don’t offer food, but bring food in from anywhere to enjoy with your beer. Lots of wood a few dartboards and the staple of the small brewpub – a stack of games. The bartender was friendly & knowledgeable and the tap list truly represents, as there were many “odd” offerings. But that’s the way I like it. Anyone can make a brown ale or stout, these guy had a peanut butter cup stout and an orange stout on tap, plus a barrel aged smoked porter… and two apple beers, several IPAs, plus a handful of other oddities. They had 14 beers on tap the day I visited, I couldn’t even try them all. Rarely does a brewpub exceed my expectations – but this one did. All the beers were fresh, most of them very good. I look forward to visiting here when in the area, and will even make it a focal point of the trip – it’s that good and fits my odd persona to a “T”.

This place definitely surprised me! In some sort of old building with other shops. It has a nice ambiance for a small space. It has a good number of highly rotating good to very good beers. No food when I visited. Very reasonably priced with samplers.

Cool place, located in a small shopping mall. pretty big with plenty of seating. Service was good, if a little indifferent. Beer was very good to bad, but they do try a lot of different flavor mixes and most of them are session friendly... that’s a plus. I liked the Peach Tea Blonde and Citra IPA; the Weed Party IPA and Watermelon wheat were ok; the Imperial Coffee and Orange Creme Stout were bad. I think this place is a lot like Short’s, A lot of misses, a few hits but always swingin’ for the fence. Also heard they will be increasing production soon. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

Visited on a summer Saturday. Comfortable space, 6 beers on tap, an excellent session ipa, a good amber, an ok different ipa, a Mayan coffee stout with a huge cinnamon aftertaste, a blue berry chick beer clean, and a Belgian dubbel that was ummm tart. I left very underwhelmed.

This was good. The brewery produces a lot of heat and smell, so once they relocate that the pub will be better. But it was family friend, with lots of board games, big tables, a small patio, and friendly service. The beer selection has taken a hit, they said--good demand for their beer, they’ve been unable to keep up for the pub. But they still had 7 beers on tap. Interesting offerings but not mind blowing--what was cool was that all seven were a bit odd in concept. And Grand Haven is great--lovely town. I had a rocking bratwurst...the bar lets you bring in food, so it worked out well for my family.

Visited O.S.A on a Saturday afternoon, and not many people were there, so it was nice to be able to chat with the owner/brewer. The inside is very comfy and welcoming, and the designs on the bar made of grains are awesome. So many beers to choose from, it was kind of overwhelming! I got the sampler with 1. Grapefruit Wheat 2. Sour Patch Pale Ale 3. Orange Cream Stout 4. Cherry IPA 5. Chocolate Milk Stout 6. Cinna Bun. They were all good, and very drinkable. I also ordered the Raspberry Wheat and it was delicious. I would recommend this brewpub to experienced beer geeks and people who usually drink light crappy beers.

So I kinda stumbled on this place... no, not drunk, but it was an accident to find it. I stopped in with the wife while in MI visiting family and was really jazzed up to see some of the cool stuff that Odd Side is making. I was bummed that the website was a bit behind and they didn’t have a peanut butter cup stout or a passionfruit pale anymore, but I did get to try some really unique and excellently made beer. It’s a little like the guy next door went wild with homebrew and it mostly works and you get to try it all. I think they had 16 taps plus a soda, sold growlers ($5 for glass and 13.50 for regular brews, 20 for specials if memory serves.) Food was abysmal... just a few bags of popcorn, chips, etc, but I didn’t really go there to eat. The service was excellent and I chatted with the barman for a bit. This will definitely make trips to MI more exciting...
Future trips have shown that this place is for real. I bumped up ratings for ambiance (seems better now that it’s busier), service and selection. This place is getting even better and will be something I look forward to during my trips to MI.
