As a brewpub, OP does itís job well, but not superbly. At times it seems to focus more on the food than the beer, which happens to be pretty good. When I lived there, my friends and I would flock there in the fall for the fantastic pumpkin ale. The stout is usually what I go for, but they have (had?) a good hefty double IPA that is quite tempting for dessert. The decor and food are nothing standout, but far from poor. It feels like it could be a chain of regional restaurants. If you can make a second stop in Kalamazoo, make sure itís here.

Olde Peninsula is going downhill. You can feel it in the air there. The service used to be top notch, and while it is still good, it is no longer exceptional. The beer selection still remains good. They only serve the beers that are brewed at Olde Peninsula, but they make some decent beers and even some specialty beers occasionally. The food has seen the greatest decline. This was one of my favorite places in Kalamazoo to eat, but the last few times Iíve been in I donít even recognize the food. The BeerBQ Pizza used to be phenomenal with a thick fluffy crust is now made on a cracker crust. The beer is still a decent value, but the food is not. I cannot express the disappointment in having a place that used to be amazing see such a rapid decline.

Iíve been drinking OPís beers since Gonzo used to brew there, and have been enjoying this place ever since. Their brewer (Dan) is a really nice guy and cranks out very good brews.The staff are friendly and the food is good too. I love me some OP!

Kind of crowded during the weekends but the wait is never significant for an average size party. Menu has some Kalamazoo staples (brewpub dip is a must for regulars and out of towners alike) and really above average meal offerings at a reasonable price. This place really stands out for Dan Kiplingerís brews. Having been to many similar brewpubs around Michigan (those that do not distribute outside) I can say OPís beer offerings are rock solid examples of each respective category, both year-round offerings and seasonal specialties. Haymarket Cream Ale, Midnight stout, Pumpkin ale, whatever you choose you cant go wrong.

Rumors of questionable beer quality were greatly exaggerated. Which is good because in a town with great beer places like Kzoo, you canít be an average brewpub. The IPA and BWB dark strong pale are both excellent beers. Donít let the tepid ratings fool you.

Not that bad of beer at this place Unfortunately we had a waitress who actually told us to "hold on a second" when she was just chatting casually with the bartender.....take that away from this experience and I would have given a much higher rating!

Monday afternoon. Small (it was Monday afternoon) but diverse crowd, all ages, some for the beer, some for a lunch break. Feel of a restaurant, but one with character, not chain-like, with the addition of a good deal of beer paraphernalia. Beers were circling around average, no more than 8, maybe 6, though one seemed to just be their stout with added chocolate and one was a radler, canít recall If Iím counting them in the 6 or 8, or maybe there were 7. No matter. Didnít get the food, but itís gotta be better than Bellís in that regard by a wide margin if youíre looking for some grub with your beer. After a weird sort of experience at Bellís, I quite enjoyed it here. They may not make the best beer, but they still do their own thing without being weird or putting on a different face, and any place that does that is well worth a stop for me.
