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... thatís 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 Shortís, A lot of misses, a few hits but always swinginí for the fence. Also heard they will be increasing production soon. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

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, theyíve 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 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 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.
