Worth a trip if you are around Michigan City. A somewhat small tap list, but you are also able to get vintage series bottles and barrel aged bottles to drink or to go. Food was good and the prices were reasonable. I went for a late lunch and it wasn't crowded, but wasn't dead either. It had a setup for live music, so I imagine it gets going in the evenings.

I enjoyed my visit. It happened to be an anniversary weekend when I went and I was able to purchase some vintage barrel aged brews at a discounted price. Good food, good value. We went for lunch and it wasn't too busy, which was cool. Tap selection was a little small, but not disappointing. I would recommend it to anyone traveling through the area.

Stopped by Shoreline on the way from Chicago into Michigan. I had heard about the place for awhile and wanted to check it out. We arrived when they had just opened for the day. Atmosphere kind of reminded me of a chain restaurant or bar/restaurant you would find a new strip mall. The servers were nice enough but pretty standard service. The beers were ok. Many were not complex or bold. A couple were not were more satisfying. Because I enjoy frequenting microbrews, I would probably stop by again for lunch if I was passing through but none of the beers were so good as to make me go out of my way to stop in. The food seemed decent. The sandwiches most people got seemed ok. I tried the SSLT, which was thin smoked salmon in place of the bacon. As much as I like bacon, the smoked salmon was pretty delicious. Over all, not bad and decent value, but nothing to make it that memorable.

This is a big, open-spaced place that cranks country music and has a laid-back attitude.

It is a wildly popular place, it was completely filled to capacity at 2:00 pm on a saturday.

We sat at the bar and got prompt service. Tried all their beers, they were decent but not spectacular. Some were failures and some where really tasty.

Didn't stick around for any food but it looked like standard pub fare.

Overall a decent stop if you need something to do between Chicago and Grand Rapids, not amazing but solid.

A: Located near the Outlet mall in Michigan City. And yes, NIPSCO power plant is pretty much your backdrop. I think the actual building is fitting and appropriate for the town. On the outskirts of an industrial area that will hopefully pick up, this place is situated in a typical work building. From the outside it might not seem like much, but inside it is very nice. There is a long bar with clear glass behind it to showcase part of the brewing process. Wood paneling is on all the walls. Tall tables are made from barrels and there are separate seating rooms. A stage is also present for entertainment.

Q: I enjoyed the beer I had. I also found the beer menu typical for a brewery. A selection of the major beer styles are available.

S: Great service from the staff. Quick, friendly, and knowledgeable.

S: Could be more extensive, but like mentioned before you can find a beer style you like.

F: I enjoyed the food I had. It was priced fairly.

V: A bit pricey, especially when the brewery doesn't have to worry about many overhead costs. I would suggest bringing beer price down fifteen percent to potentially drive more everyday drinking business.
