Easy to see location directly off exit of highway with a service station next door. Clean tap room with a bar for 10 and tables for larger groups. Smoking indoor in a seperate room with tables and cooler for take out beers. Service was freindly and offered 12 tap sampler four at a time to let me sample. Good freindly crowd. Good beer selection with 4 Celis brews on tap. Limited soup menu and peanuts to fill the space. Interesting and fun location.
This place is in an odd sopt, and is hard to see, unless you’re really looking for it. I thnik we went by it a couple times. Sorta snugged in behind a gas station. Patio looked huge and comfy, though we didnt hang there. Freidly service, with a dozen taps of all stuff brewed on premises. It’s cool that they have $1 samples. I got to try about 5 beers. Food sounded good, but didn’t get a chance to tri it, but Im going back for the chili. There’s a smoking/games room, which appealed to me. Another good spot in MI.
This was kind of out in the sticks between Lansing going towards Ann Arbor but it turned out to be a worthwhile visit. I guess they had about 10-12 taps on with samples (5oz) for $1 or pints for $3.50. A decent range of styles with some mediocre ones in the mix. There wasn’t really much to look at in the brewery because they were in the process of moving but the actual restaurant part is nice and comfortable.
I stop here whenever I go to Lansing. The first time I tried to find it, we totally missed it. Food selection is limited, but very good, the soups and chili are good. They are in the process of opening a new pub next door, I’ll look forward to it. The beer coasters on the ceiling are a nice touch and it is fun to find ones that you know or have been to.
Surprisingly difficult to find but worth the quick visit - we stopped in after the Michigan Brewers Guild Summer Beer Fest 2005. The garden was open to all and sundry with a buffet laid out and dogs and corn for whoever wanted as well as a few beers on freepour. Definitely nice people, decent beers and fine food. I hope I’ll have opportunity to return someday to sample more of thei hospitality.
Located right off I-96, tucked away behind an enormous gas station, this is a nice little place to visit. They had 12 beers on tap, including a handful of seasonals and almost all of their regular offerings. The beers range from light ales for the Budweiser fan (Hamtramck Beer) to the most potent offering, Celis Grand Cru. Otherwise the offerings are pretty typical- a porter, a stout, an IPA, a pale ale, etc. Prices are pretty typical for Michigan. I didn’t order food but they do offer a few items to munch on as indicated on their small menu. The brewpub is decorated by coasters from breweries across the country and beyond and fit the small town mold nicely. Seating is rather limited- a few barstools and a handful of tables. Next to and behind the brewpub is the brewing area, which seemed fairly substantial although they’re moving to a new, larger location nearby. Darts are available in this area, and there is also a large cooler set-up offering all of their bottled offerings as singles or in six-packs (including mix-and-match). Some beers were even available in 32-ounce plastic bottles. MBC makes it easy to pick up their beers in a variety of forms. The bartender and manager were friendly and attentive. Worth another visit.
