I got here on a Saturday afternoon and there were only a few people inside at the bar. I was really impressed with the architecture and materials they had used to decorate the inside of the bar. It gave me a woodsy clean modern cabin vibe. (Even the bathroom had a skylight which leaked in the warm sunlight.) The bartender that was working was very friendly and seemed genuinely excited about the beers they make, and I think that is a giant asset. I ordered a Smuggler's Hazelnut Stout and had a seat outside in their garden area, which was quite roomy and green. There was a medium sized in ground pool that had grass growing in it and horseshoes (the game) set up in it. Unfortunately when I arrived I didnt stick around long enough for more than one beer as I had dinner plans somewhere else. This is really a great place to go in Grand Rapids and Ill most certainly be returning next time Im in the area.

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.

Atmosphere: very cool place. small and quaint but a nice upstairs area and a killer outdoor patio. horse shoes, cards, cribbage. every night has a theme such as retro video games, new beer, live music. very relaxed and fun place
Quality: i tried 7 of their beers and like them all and some were even great. they had some different beers but everything was well done
Service: the bartenders were helpful, and nice. they didn't miss a beat
Selection: they had a wide variety of styles and levels of beer. there is something here for everyone
Overall: great little spot that is quite hidden. they don't get a lot of notice but their beer is closer to the level of founders than any other grand rapids brewer
