We stopped here at a fruitless search for a parking space at the beach on the fourth of July weekend. The entrance was bright and inviting with some outside tables. Unfortunately, there was nothing to see but the busy highway. In any event it was hot that day and we ate inside. The beer offerings were written on an easily seen chalkboard by an upscale looking bar. Our waitress quickly got our ales, but waiting for the food was a little slow. The offerings included a hoppy pale ale, American IPA, a seasonal blonde ale and an Irish ale. Our appetizer was a spinach artichoke dip with crawfish. The dip had a generous amount of crawfish and was tasty enough to recommend. A couple of us got the "lucky dog" hotdog which was similar to a Chicago style dog. I ordered a "Irish dip" sandwich that was heaped with beef and cheese. The menu also included a red snapper and steaks. Typical for a tourish area, the food and beer were pricy. The hoppy American Pale ale met the standard, but not much more. I cannot vouch for all the ales, but this place is worth trying for the food alone.

Nice little place. Extremely clean everywhere. Not the largest selection of beers, but the ones they have are all quality AND the food is great. The pub also offers a chance to take a crack at brewing your own batch(right there next to the service bar). Will definitely be back.

I have been to this brewery 3 times, once for a concert that was taking place in the back room and twice prior to going to concerts in Saugatuck. I like this place a lot. Their beer is all good to great and although I would not say their food is outstanding, it is better than average. They always have some interesting beers on tap that are not available in bottles, and the service is always very good. I would definitely recommend it if you are in the Saugatuck / Douglas area.
