Definitely need to come back and check out the food. The selection is nuts of course: 46 taps with all kinds of rare stuff, lots of Michigan beer, lots of strong beers. Very much a college vibe, at least when we were there at 10:00 pm on a Wednesday. Servers are helpful, but busy because the place is packed. Got Bellís 11 and Arcadia Warkraft on tap, so thatís cool with me. Nicely done interior. Must visit for any beer geek in the TC area. Prices are somewhat high for some things, but rarity is usually the reason.

Very nice, spacious place, all clean and new. One cool display case has a bottle from each of the 7 Trappist breweries (not a coincidence I imagine) along with the corresponding glasses. Selection of beers is quite good, mostly Michigan and/or Belgian-style beers. Definitely the best selection in the area. Didnít try the food, but I can say it smelled really good. Menu was more expansive than I had expected. Our server was very attentive and willing to help with selections if needed. (Back of the place was full service, front was service at the bar, at least when we were there.) Certainly will be back.

Great place to get "that" brew that you have beenlooking for on tap for a long time. If it is not one tap they have full cooler with imports and micro brews by the bottle.
Itís a new place and a little busy so sometimes the service is slow but the servers are VERY knowledgeable about their beers.

Are you kidding me? Been waiting for this place for a long time. Taps change daily. Apparently theyíre about to do some tap takeover nights, etc. A MUST when in Traverse City! Try the Abbey Burger!

New taproom in a popular northern Mi town. Good crowd on a Friday night. Saturday for football less crowded. Great selection with 46 taps with lots of Belgians and American micros, as well as others. A very good selection of bottled beer as well. Limited food menu, the pizza and salad we had was quite tasty. Order all food and drinks at the bar. Staff was very friendly as were other bar patrons.
This is a gem of a place, if you are in northern Mi it is a must visit. Beergeeks in the northern Midwest can plan a nice weekend beer tour in northwest Mi with this as key part along with shorts and rightbrain.
