Classic small time brewery. It's not trying to be anything fancy. It's just a good place to get some decent beer and hang out. Free popcorn and pool, set yourself up with a few beers and chill. Not hard to lose a few hours without losing much of your wallet here. You can tell these guys just enjoy what they get to do everyday.

Two trips within a month’s time. Reasonable pricing on beer and growlers. Inconsistent flavor with the beer between the two visits, even among the tap mainstays (except for the Bonecrusher Stout - that was consistently delicious). Nice and quiet, great spot to stop with kids. Bring your own food friendly.

This place is pretty much what you'd want to see in a neighborhood bar. Great selection of beers, pool tables and friendly service that won't pull punches if you engage in dumb assery. The owner guy was very friendly and eager to talk up any patron. Have a bite to eat elsewhere, then swing by here for after dinner (or lunch) good times.

Great place for beer and to meet friends.
The staff works very hard to make sure you are served correctly and with a smile.
Owners are often in the tasting room providing service and good conversation.
The brewer is a one of a kind guy. GREAT knowledge and experience.
Because of the demand the beers rotate quickly so there is always something fresh on tap.
You can find bottles all over Michigan.
At certain time brewery tours are available and worth the price. Schmohz has one of the larger micro-brew systems in West Michigan.

The atmosphere is cozy. Cool, low key feel, nice garden area. Unique feel. How many other bars have a Michigan Tech hockey theme?
Beer quality is VERY sketchy. I've made it a point to drop by a time or two every year to give this place another chance. They just keep putting out below average beer. I haven't been alone in questioning the possibility of the bar passing off infected beers as servable.
Service has been adequate. While I can't blame servers for selling the product, I've witnessed the brewer being confronted over perceived shortfalls in his brews. Constructive questioning hasn't been welcome.
While the selection is pretty vast for the brewery's size, it lacks on much "good" beer. I've consistently enjoyed the ESB, otherwise it's a bit of a crap shoot.
Again, value would be great. 3.75 for a pint? Count me in! Then again, I've left more than 1 pint on a table as completely undrinkable. That's no great value.
I really want to like this place. I'm a huge beer homer and want to see all MI joints succeed. That said, after many disappointing visits (over the course of 5 years or more) it's time to give an honest review. After comparing their "Beer City PA" with versions from other local breweries, I've only confirmed my suspicions. It's just not worth your time or money to hit this place up while in GR. I'm sure I'll continue to give my obligatory visit every year. If things improve, I'll be sure to update. One can hope...
