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.

Small place with the brewing equipment right in the tap room. Aroma of malted barley can be smelt before you even reach the door. A good amount of beer on tap, lots of different styles. Pay what I would expect to pay for a quality ale. Nice find, I would reccomend anyone who appreciates quality unique beer to stop by this place.

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.

Visited on a quiet Friday after lunch with my wife (Labor Day Weekend). Great selection of ales with 14/16 taps available and they were filling the last two as we were leaving. The pub is nicely decorated in an artsy-IKEA style with a mix of bar stools, cozy chairs and a couch. We tried a traditional Belgian Wit, Peanut Butter Cup Stout (on NITRO) and the Double Fat Bottom IPA. We were politely offered a few other samples that were also delicious and would make me happy to return again. I was told to keep an eye on local restaurant beer listís as well; they had recently up-sized the equipment.

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 didnít have a peanut butter cup stout or a passionfruit pale anymore, but I did get to try some really unique and excellently made beer. Itís 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 didnít 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 itís busier), service and selection. This place is getting even better and will be something I look forward to during my trips to MI.

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.

I stumbled upon this place one day on ratebeer and Iím very glad I did. Itís tucked inside an old building theyíve 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. Thatís a shame, as there are probably people who would have a pint or two if they knew it was there. They donít 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 Ė a stack of games. The bartender was friendly & knowledgeable and the tap list truly represents, as there were many ďoddĒ offerings. But thatís 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 porterÖ and two apple beers, several IPAs, plus a handful of other oddities. They had 14 beers on tap the day I visited, I couldnít even try them all. Rarely does a brewpub exceed my expectations Ė 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 Ė itís that good and fits my odd persona to a ďTĒ.

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.
