It’s a great place to stop at in Grand Rapids. It's large and there are two bars to grab pints and one outside in the beer garden if in season. There isn't much of a line to wait in other than the food line. It was crowed, but at the same time didn't seem crowed. Go here, it's awesome.

Good spot. Great beer. Wish I wasn't there on a week night. Friendly staff. Looks like a great place to spend an Autumn day. Fireplaces blazing outside, delicious beer inside. The choices in the gift shop were dizzying. Very reasonably priced. Def a great destination.
