Came up here for a Bourbon County tap take-over, 2014. Upscale college dive bar vibe, looks a little nicer on the inside than the outside. Food menu looked pretty nice & extensive, though I did not order food. Of course the selection that day was nice, with 2012-2014 BCS, BCS Coffee, & BC Barley Wine, but the tap list appeared pretty nice otherwise. Also got a pour of Big Lushious & a tap-only Jolly Pumpkin beer while I was there. Friendly service although it seemed they were kind of unaware of what they had on tap at the time. Nice place. Would visit again.
I absolutely loved this, for a first time. It had a dive bar feel, but I wasn’t expecting too much else. Sam, the bartender, was awesome, and service was great. The food was good (bar burgers are hard to mess up) and the beer selection was pretty good as well. I like how they do some rarer stuff on occasion, which is a little surprising for a smaller dive. I liked it!
The best selection of drafts anywhere in the area. I went here in college for the cheap buckets and now I can go back and experience it in a whole new light with immense draft and bottle list. Monthly tap takeovers are fun and the food is great (bucket of tots...). All around cool place.
This was one of my favorite places while living in East Lansing. The Buckets are the best deal, just be ready to get drunk! Beware though, Karaeoke can get a little loud so if going there on one of those nights, unless you want the conversation to be dominated by whoever is singing try to get on the opposite side of the bar.
The great selection on tap is reason enough to visit Crunchys. But you are not reading this to choose a place to eat. I like that you can order beer in 3 different serving sizes or a flight. My food was okay; the service was okay. Did I mention that the beer selection was great?

First visit, had a calzone and some brews. Food was decent, beer selection was pretty good. Kind of a dumpy little place, with a really nice selection of beers. Comfortable place to spend some time with friends and good beer.
The tap selection here is awesome. Also lately they have been doing tap takeovers by different breweries which are also very nice. I love the beer selection they get here, but other than that I don’t really care for the place. I will keep going for beer but not for the food or atmosphere.
