One of my favorite brewpubs in northern Indiana. From the outside of the building you wouldn’t think it to be a restaurant or brewery unless you saw the awning that said it was. Inside the pub its really different, lots of exposed wood, really hits on the pub essence. The food has never been bad and on better than most of the surround restaurants on average, the perch sandwich with the chipotle mayo is my favorite. The beer selection is good. With 10 - 15 beers on tap all the time.

Nice brewpub in Michigan City by the dunes. It is not much to look at and has a definite cheap, DIY sort of a vibe but it works for the space. The food was very good, my hamburger was cooked per instructions and my fiance got a seafood salad which she said was excellent. The serving size was not retardedly ginormous, which is a nice change. Our server was decent and nice, not particularly knowledgeable but willing to go ask. There were a good dozen or so selections on cask, six of which you could try as a flight (they chose the six, unfortunately). Prices are reasonable, esp. compared to Chicago. Ask about their specialty bottles. They have some BA releases available if you ask. I don’t see myself visiting Michigan City again and not visiting this place.

A bit off the highway, but offering a respite of better beer in this town. Nice selection of regular and barrel-aged beers (though it took WAY too long to bring those to market!). Decent food selection and quality with some eclectic and/or ethnic offerings. Usually a good beer selection on tap as well as the Barrel-aged series to go (though not cheap on the latter).

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.

An average brewpub that occasionally puts out some good season selections.

Great place. Didn’t have the food, focused on the beer but the menu looked intriguing. Brought along some friends who are beer novices and were treated great. Very impressed with the beer selection. 12 taps and not just the standard stuff. 3 IPAs on tap including a fantastic Double/Imperial IPA! Loved ’Curse the Goat’ Dopplebock as well. Not every beer was my favorite but there was something for everyone here. Don’t leave without trying one of the Bourbon Barrel series, wish I had bought a case. Outside appearance and ambiance is nothing special, but a real gem inside. Many thanks to Jim the assistant brewer for giving a mini tour of the brewery!

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 doesn’ t look like much but they are turning out some good beers, both of the IPA’s on tap were very good, and other beers were solid.

This is worth the trip for me because i can get dropped off here while the little lady will go shopping at the Lighthouse mall down the street,a very friendly place with good beer and i am hoping they come out with their Bourbon series soon.CHEERS!

This building is not much to look at on the outside, but clean and simple on the inside. Did not order food, but a decent selection. Nikki was the server and she was pleasant, courteous, attentive, and she obtained the ABV’s upon request. Thanks, Nikki! A nice selection of beers were available during this visit and most ended up with an overall average of between 13-15 and were average to above average. I will definitely revisit this establishment to see what’s new on the beer list.

Visited July 11th 2008. This place was disappointing. The place was hard to find, the building needs to be fixed up a bit on the outside, and some signage near the road, especially to inform about the parking lot in behind the building would be nice. Inside looked nice enough. Food was overpriced and not so great. The beer was a lot of copies of macros. I wouldn’t go again, even if in the area.
