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 didn’t 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 I’ll most certainly be returning next time I’m 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.
