Been there in November 2013. The bartender at The Livery told us to stop here on our way to Greenbush and Three Floyds. We took 8 tasters, so we cover the menu at that time. New place, new equipment. Good beer, no bad recipes, but not solide. But we can taste that they are still adapting to the equipment. We’ll come back next year to taste the progress.
A brewpub in downtown Bridgman across the street from Transient (which is the real draw to the area). Atmosphere is alright, as is the beer, which boasts a good selection of pedestrian offerings. The food is the real draw though. Eat here and drink at Transient.
Friendly bartenders as with the owners. Good tasting beers, new food menu than most places.

Went on a Sunday afternoon during vacation. Just stopped to have a beer after grocery shopping in town. Place is sort of oddly set up with the bar in back and a couch in front staring at the wall, and then a set of tables in the corner opposite the bar. Service was prompt and helpful, but was a little disappointed in the small number of taps they had - something like only 6 or 8 at the time. Seemed small for a brewery that distributes statewide. Prices were very reasonable, with low gravity beers at just $4/pint.
On a main street of small town, outside looks kind of inconspicuous. Inside is new, medium sized, smaller bar area, can see brewing facility from the bar. Lots of taps filled with different styles, by far the most was imperial or regular IPA. Hummus was very good. Tasting flight of any tier for a reasonable price. All of the beer was well done and few that were great. Bar tender was one of the brewers and was very informative. A must stop if your in the area.
Stopped in just off the freeway on the home. A nice taproom with a medium sized bar on the right and a good amount of seating. Service was a bit slow at the start but was solid overall and bartender knew about their beers. There were about 16 beers on tap with flights available. Really enjoyed my Cuban and the hummus we had. Prices were great. Solid brewpub.
Right in downtown Bridgman, easy to find. Couple miles north of Greenbush. Bigger and roomier than expected. Cute little girl serving knew her beer and was very friendly (Jan says perfect for Harrison!). Bar seats probably 10-12 plus there is seating for probably 50 more. Got pretty crowded before we left and girl and big bartender (or cook?) dude seemed to be able to handle everyone no problem. Pretty dark in there with a warehouse type feel as the windows face north (?) and was not catching much sun. TVs to watch the Lions game on the couch. Everyone very friendly, beers pretty good, large pours on the cheapish flights and good food. What is not to like?
Stopped in after having had a handful of their beers over the last year around the state. Nice place, food was good staff were very friendly. They had 16 beers or so on tap, did a couple flights of tasters (5 each). Had one mediocre beer- the rest were really solid. I come down here to hit up Greenbush and now have a second must do in the area.
A new must stop in SW Michigan... Good brews and great food with nice sized portions. Friendly staff that is knowledgeable a plus too. Lots of variety on the beer menu with a good amount of sessionable brews as well.
This place is a gem in Southwest Michigan, same as Greenbush. They have a large beer selection, organized by tier (ABV). IPA’s are solid, and their higher gravity beers are excellent, especially the Belgian varietals. Food was great although they have only sandwiches. They have a couple selections for kids (and lot of crayons!). If you’re in the area, check it out.
