This was a big and enjoyable surprise. Early after noon before Greenbush and Three Floyds. We took three flight of tasters so we cover the whole menu. No bad beer in the lot, all very well done and solid. Great service and food. The bartender even told us to stop at The Tapistry.

Iíve been here 3 times, each experience varied greatly. Always lots of ticks, but the quality ranges from poor to decent, just donít know what youíre gonna get. A lot of the beers taste the same, so even if there are 15 beers, you canít tell the difference in 10 of them. There are usually a couple standouts. The food need major work. The service is ok, but you can tell theyíd rather just deal with locals. Decent stop if youíre in the area, but donít go out of your way.

Stopped in with Nobelsquirrel on the way to Chicago from Grand Rapids. On a Sunday the city of Benton Harbor is depressing. We drove through town looking for the brewery first and then walked around for 20 minutes since the place wasnít open yet. I think I saw 2 people the whole time. Inside were another two people, one server and one person in the kitchen. This could have been the start of a low budget horror film. Anyway, we headed down the stairs into the basement and sat at the bar and ordered some flights. The server was more than happy to talk beer and the Michigan Brewers Guild Fest that had just happened. The beers were alright, not quite what I had heard about on the forums in years passed but not bad. Actually the whole reason that I ever even thought to pay attention to these guys was from a cquiroga rating of the bourbon triple bock. I got to try the regular version but sadly not the bourbon that weekend. I was a bit underwhelmed, though a year later I did get to try the bourbon version and it was pretty damn good. The weird take on sours they do is interesting but not really my style. If nothing else their beer is always interesting. The nachos were OK too. I would definitely stop back if making the trip around the lake, though at this point Iím more interested in checking out Shoreline which isnít all that far from here.

This is a great place in Southwest Indiana, around five minutes off of I94. Great selection of their beers, no other brands are offered and thatís alright with me, because these are some damn good beers. Food menu is small but excellente, service is great, and multi-levels and the beer is great. Y favorite is their Hop Trail DIPA!

Stopped in not knowing what to expect, and left extremely satisfied. There are two bars: one upstairs and one downstairs (and they each have some of their own offerings). The service was fantastic; both the bartender and a brewer fielded several of my questions, and were nothing but nice and helpful. I didnít eat, but they do serve food. Iíll be back soon. Update: I had a bad experience last time, but the bartender that was there 2/3 times (Nate) was amongst the best Iíve ever met, so Iím giving the other experience the benefit of the doubt based solely on his exceptional(ly friendly) service.

This is a great place to stop and have dinner and a couple beers. The food was even better than the beer (you need a Turkey Bacon Avocado sandwich... seriously), which doesnít take anything away from the beers on tap. Pricing was OK (some of the limited stuff was pretty pricey, though) and service was super friendly.

Nice place, staff and patrons friendly, food was limited but pretty good. Had 7 of the 8 beers on tap and they were all mediocre. Nothing here really impressed me.

Really enjoyed this joint. Not a place I would really bring my 2 year old to, more bar-ish. The food smelled good, but we were just drinking there. Both the barkeep and the locals were warm and welcoming. The selection of styles was great! They had 3 ciders plus 1 NA Cider, An IPA, an APA, a sour, a Baltic porter, a red ale, a brown ale, and a couple Belgium styled beers. This place is a hidden gem worth planning a trip around, or going out of your way to visit!
