4.35/5  rDev +4.1%

this was the final stop of a beer trip to Michigan, with an arrival of a little after six o'clock. the establishment takes up two floors of the building, with the second level open to live events and a general restaurant area, along with a basement tap room and cafe. there was a blues band playing upstairs, with general music playing in the basement.

atmosphere is true to a basement bar, with rudimentary finishing and wooden tables and chairs. heavy timber structure throughout gives it a historical feel, along with the live music that really gives it an authentic feeling.

quality is good. proper glassware and clean conditions; no complaints.

service was great. the brewmaster was grabbing a brew at the bar, and was happy to talk beer and brewing with a few BAs, quite friendly and with a good sense of humor. the bartender was responsive and open to samples and general inquiries.

selection was great. quite a wide variety, with ales, lagers, and light to strong varietals. the only complaint here is that throughout the spectrum all the brews were imparted with a lightly tart finish, bordering on a lightly sour quality.

food was decent. sandwiches come with a small side of lays potato chips, but the prices were quite inexpensive.

overall, this is a wonderful stop for beer. another plus is that each brew can be ordered in a 10 oz, 16 oz, or 22 oz. glass. very convienient if one is driving, or if one wants to try a few styles without drinking too much. cheers!
