Pleasant brewpub - quite a bit of seating. Good selection of beers with a customer-friendly taster policy. Nice easy stop off of 31 - but if you’re coming from 31, you need to make a U-turn as soon as you can - brewpub is just to the north of the overpass/bridge.

Nice place, right on the water. Usually a bit crowded and busy, but the beer is generally pretty good and the food is good also. Only their stuff, as far as I can remember. But a good place if you are in the area.

Not a bad little brewpub. Comfy, decent beer and food. Food is a little pricey but what isn’t these days. Get a growler filled once every couple weeks. Oktobertfest beer was amazing.

This is a huge brewpub by the water, nothing else is really around so it has a very large parking lot. The inside of the building is big with the bar kind of in its separate room. Every inch of this place is dog-themed. There is patio seating also. The variety of beer is decent, running a fair range of styles. All the stuff I tried was pretty good. Prices are high for food. You’re not gonna eat for less than $10 and it’s more likely to be in the $15 range. I had a tasty jalapeno-sauce, anchovy pizza for $10, which actually is a fair price for a pizza.The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a good place to come watch the game and have a few brews.

Yep, everything has gone to the dogs here. I’m not a huge dog fan, but the décor was interesting to look at while I waited awhile for my beer/food to arrive. The large Scooby Doo was the winner and the mug club mugs are way up there, I wonder how often they get used. Nine house beers on tap and large pours on the sampler, I had to pace myself on the sampler and couldn’t finish the whole thing. Beer ranged from above average to so-so and the food was respectable. Much like their fellow Grand Haven neighbor Odd Side, they make some unique beers.

Very good food and selection of beers. My service was terrible, but I was only there once and I do not know if that is normal.

I had to give the ambiance full points because of the theme, DOGS! I am a dog lover, and every inch is covered in pictures of dogs. It is a really impressive brewpub, recommend to me from the owner of Odd Side Ales, which is about 2 miles away. I tried a Toffee beer and tried their Golden Sour, and got a pint of Brown. They were all decent, the sour being the most unusual. Worth a stop if you are going a West Coast MI beer tour, but don’t go out of your way.

Much larger than I anticipated. Seems to focus more on the food than beer, nevertheless, the beer is high quality. About 7 of the OBB brews on draft, mostly basic styles, but all very good. I had a pizza which was very good. They have a large patio that overlooks the river. A cool place to stop if you are in the area.

Had a wedding rehearsal dinner here years ago and they have not changed much in a decade or so. Patio on the water is great and they have an interesting rotation of brews and food specials (for example, you don’t see Michigan blue gill on menus much). Their beer is average. It’s not bad, and they check all the right boxes with the styles they attempt, but with so many brewpubs out their you need a signature beer to differentiate yourself these days. That they do not have. Nice place to eat and have a beer if you find yourself in the Michigan West Coast area (Muskegon, Grand Haven, Holland, Spring Lake, etc.)
