A little tricky to find unless you've been there back when it was Hubba Tubba. It's off Plainfield back next to the Fox 17 Station.

Inside atmosphere was nice. Different beer related decor around the bar area. Has a pretty laid back feel & some nice music too. Also, looks like there is an upstairs seating area and an outdoor patio area. I sat at the bar, so didn't get to experience either of these. Maybe next time.

They had maybe 7 or 8 beers to choose from. Not a huge selection, but decent. The couple of beers I tried were very nice beers. Especially their ESB. I would definitely recommend that one.

Overall it was a nice experience. Good beers at decent prices with a laid back atmosphere. The kind of place you'd want to stop in at after a long day at work.

This scoring shouldn't discourage people from attending as I feel Hideout is a great stop in Grand Rapids.

A-Very divey...it's built in an old hot tub rental warehouse. Kind of still smells like chlorine. Have fun loft with shuffleboard and vintage video games systems. I believe they have open mic and performers sometimes.

Q-Beers are great tasting but have to assume they're using flavor additives in the majority (with offerings like Root Beer Stout, Tutti Frutti Cream Ale, Coconut Almond Brown, etc.).

S- They usually have 25-35 different beers on tap with a few solid nitro offerings. Their taps rotate over pretty quickly as they seem to have a half dozen new brews on tap every week. You can almost be assured to stumble upon a style that you've never seen before. I've had Hot Dog beer, Bacon Stouts, etc.

F-Free popcorn a limited menu of mainly reheated, frozen bar food like nachos, bosco sticks, etc.

V-A little bit pricier than you'd expect for the quality. Pints start at $4.25 for mainstays and then go up to $6 for specialties.

O-Like I said, give it a shot and you won't be disappointed. Need to work a little bit on consistency but it's a fun little dive brewery and is usually always quiet.
