A solid brewpub in the shadow of the (tied for) largest smokestack I have ever seen in my life. Staff were very friendly and had helpful advice. Beer range was wide and the offerings were dect. Food was good. What more do you need? They even had a separate room for "families" (read: noisy kids), which was behind what looked like soundproof glass. This is a brilliant idea, and should be replicated in every public business in the USA.

Large barn-looking building, inside the decor is quite nice. High ceilings, has a ski lodge or cabin look, with a long bar along one side of the room, behind which is a long wall of windows looking in to the brewing operations. Beer quality is OK, and down the menu it seems the quality is around average, though their barley wine was really, really good. Decent service, but prices are a bit high for a place like Michigan City - expect to pay $4/pint for regular beer and $5/12oz for specialty beer. High prices because itís neat the beach.

Easy to find location with parking lot in the back. Clean inside with new wood walls and clean bar and tables. Brewing operations behind glass behind bar. Freindly service with a selection of 9 taps. All beers above average with good selection of styles. Good food menu and the spicy calamari was a good portion and very good flavor. Enjoyed the visit and will come back when in the area.

Finally stopped in on the way home from GR. We didnít have directions but it was easy to find. Quite a few beers on tap on this visit, it was a large sampler platter and the beer ranged from ho-hum to decent. The food was pretty good and the service wasnít bad. Iím getting use to places being non smoking these days and really appreciate it. Here, they put the non-smokers in this little fish bowl and the smokers get the run of the large room so that downgrades it a bit IMO.

Visited fairly late on a Monday night in June, 2007; despite the somewhat out-of-the-way location (for non-locals anyway) itís not really hard to find. High-ceilinged with light pine walls and a long bar, the first thing I noticed was that everyone seemed to be smoking. No non-smoking section? Actually it turned out that a small room is sectioned off for that purpose, and given that nobody was in it and the prevalence of tobacco use amongst the patrons who were there, I guess they donít need any more. Reluctantly I sat amongst the cancer lovers so as not to feel too alone, but the place was fairly well-ventialate and the very high ceiling helped. Service was very friendly though not super-knowledgeable; the food I had was exceptional, a beautifully-done and too-large lamb shank and solid garlic mashed potatoes with a salad that didnít seem perfunctory. So....the beer. Umm, hate to be a naysayer here, but I found the 6 samples and the full glass of Kolsch I had to be all pretty watery, weak on malt and overly dry. They werenít terrible by any means, but if not for the food, I donít think Iíd revisit. So...mixed rating from me; perhaps Iíll try the bottles.

Many of their offerings are average, but they have a few surprises once in a while. There BA series shows some promise. Go here if you are ever tricked into being in MIchigan city. I had some chicken wings, which were pretty typical. Not a bad little place- brewer seems to care about the beer.

Huge brew pub located in an old warehouse. Pretty easy to find. Michigan City didnít look like the greatest place in the world, but it was a weekday in December. They had about a dozen of their own beers on tap the day I visited which were pretty average. Food was also okay, but not outstanding. Service was good, but the waiter didnít know a whole lot about the beers.

I wasnít planning on stopping here, but I saw some highway signs while on a trip. So advertising really does work! The neighborhood is industrial and I wasnít expecting much looking at the buliding on the outside. Inside, the place is very clean and looked brand new to me. Lots of cement and wood with glass between you and the brewing equipment. I had some great pasta while tasting. The beers were solid and above average, especially their pale ales. A pleasant surprise and I will deifnitely return if I am anywhere in the area again.

Decrepit brick exterior. Wood panelled interior. 12 brews on tap with a nice array of styles. Cozy inside, brewing equipment behind the bar and a spacious dining area. Good service, knowledgeable about the beer. Did not try the food. This place doesní t look like much but they are turning out some good beers, both of the IPAís on tap were very good, and other beers were solid.

Rather desolate looking brick building which has been very nicely reconditioned inside. Moderate to large bar, many tables as well as a small stage make up this brewpub. They have daily beer specials which are great deals. The beer itself is good. They have a few that fall a little short and others that are really great. I was happy to see many complicated styles offered. Currently, I would have to say that their food is better than the beer. That being said, the burger I had was one of the best I have Ever had. Kind of out of the way from 90, but in the heart of all of the Indiana Dunes action.
