New Founders, great place to relax and have the best beer in Grand Rapids. With one of the longest bars in the city makes finding a seat easy most of the time.

I am lucky enough to be with walking distance of the place which can give me some breathing room when I make the decision to have one more brew.

The service is always good even when the place is packed from wall-to-wall. Also the bartenders/servers will take the time to help people find the beer that they will enjoy.

Selection wise it is kinda sad to see the 2-6 empty taps, but it is always better to better quality and a smaller selection then a bunch of half-assed beers

Food is great, the Castro and the Backwoods Bastard being two of my favorites.

A must for anyone that loves beer.

This place is huge, tons of seat yourself seating inside and out. Service was very quick. Roaming servers take drink orders and deliver quickly. Lost of great beers to choose from.

Food is ordered from a separate window with a pager given for pick up. I had the cheesesteak, their most popular sandwich, my fiancé had turkey Ruben sandwich. We split a small side of potato salad. Overall the food was great. Quick service.
