Located inside a shopping mall in an old building. Big place, and its clear no brewing happens in this unit. Large bar, lots of tables. Food was tasty. Bartender gave good service despite the place being super-busy right away. Probably 40 or so people within 15 minutes of opening... on a weekday. Tons of beers on tap. All of them quite well executed and tasty. Plenty of bottles to go. Solid prices overall. Nice place, worth stopping by. Looks like there’s another brewery half a block away, but I had neither the time nor the sobriety.
This is a chill little brewery tucked away in a brick building near the river. Beer selection is a little quirky with interesting stuff. I had a tasty pineapple IPA. There is no real food available, just some chips. They have a load of different mugs adorning the back wall perhaps for regulars. They also seem to have an affinity for the mythical jackalope which reminded me of back in TN. Cool place.
This place definitely surprised me! In some sort of old building with other shops. It has a nice ambiance for a small space. It has a good number of highly rotating good to very good beers. No food when I visited. Very reasonably priced with samplers.
In area for business and did a tour of Holland to Spring Lake to Grand Rapids.
This is easy to find with good parking even during tourist gatherings. On first floor of old factory building downtown. Bar on left with hooks and mugs on wall with tables on the right. Very freindly staff with no written knowledge of full names, styles or ABV. Selection of beers is good and taste was complex and good. Snacks can be purchased on site or food can be carried in. Enjoyed the visit and will return when in Grand Rapids for RBSG.
Stopped up to check this place out while back home in Kalamazoo, and am very glad I did. The ambiance is nice, and the bartender was great. No food yet, although you can bring your own in, and they have chips and popcorn. Value is good too. Definitely worth the trip.
Stopped in for samples on a Tuesday afternoon. Friendly and prompt service (Marlon), and a great selection of brews to try. No food available, but a relaxed atmosphere in which to sit and sip. Had some really good samples, including a superb coffee beer and a barrel-aged Wee Heavy. Definitely worth a stop!
I stumbled upon this place one day on ratebeer and I’m very glad I did. It’s tucked inside an old building they’ve turned into a mall. You could easily walk by the building and not even know there was a brewpub in there as advertising on the outside was scarce. That’s a shame, as there are probably people who would have a pint or two if they knew it was there. They don’t offer food, but bring food in from anywhere to enjoy with your beer. Lots of wood a few dartboards and the staple of the small brewpub – a stack of games. The bartender was friendly & knowledgeable and the tap list truly represents, as there were many “odd” offerings. But that’s the way I like it. Anyone can make a brown ale or stout, these guy had a peanut butter cup stout and an orange stout on tap, plus a barrel aged smoked porter… and two apple beers, several IPAs, plus a handful of other oddities. They had 14 beers on tap the day I visited, I couldn’t even try them all. Rarely does a brewpub exceed my expectations – but this one did. All the beers were fresh, most of them very good. I look forward to visiting here when in the area, and will even make it a focal point of the trip – it’s that good and fits my odd persona to a “T”.

Visited on a summer Saturday. Comfortable space, 6 beers on tap, an excellent session ipa, a good amber, an ok different ipa, a Mayan coffee stout with a huge cinnamon aftertaste, a blue berry chick beer clean, and a Belgian dubbel that was ummm tart. I left very underwhelmed.
I really liked this place, small and cozy kind of a hippy vibe. Type o negative covering the Beatles ok. Lots of different beer style some I really like. Our bartender Sarah was exceptional. Well worth the trip from GR!
