I was used to the old location, so going to the new one was somewhat of a surprise. A LOT bigger and a pretty rowdy crowd, but not out of control. The only thing I found a bit of a problem was the crowd was hard to navigate thru. We did go on a Friday night between Christmas and New Years, so that probably accounted for a lot of the crowd. I had their Rye pale and an Old Curmudgeon, both great. The beer is great, the food rocked and we all had a great time. It don't get much better.. I will make this an annual event while I'm in Michigan for the Holidays.
