The place was fairly easy to find and parking was a snap. The bar is downstairs with lots of tables, a counter to order food, and a pool table. Upstairs was where the live shows took place. It had a very bar-like feel to it with the basement aspect to it. I definitely felt like I was from out of town because everyone there seemed to know each other, but it was fine and it was a pretty warm atmosphere overall. The bartender was attentive and knew about the beers. They had some cool stuff on tap such as a couple different IPA's, some lagers, a quad, and an ESB on the handpull. None of the beers really blew my doors off, but they were all very solid. A unique brewery that is definitely worth a visit.

This place is a hidden gem. Tried a few of their brews and all of them were great. The food is excellent as well. The food was decently priced, but some of the pours were a bit steep (upwards of $12 for a 10oz pour. The atmosphere is great. Would definitely recommend.

Almost the first ones through the door on a mid-winter Saturday for our first visit. Just us outsiders and a couple of locals. The bartender could not have been a nicer guy. Super friendly and more than willing to offer up information and tasters. A good jokester too. We sort of did the whole line up from a big cherry aged Belgian to a nice pilsner. The Freak Show red Belgian was a standout. The line up moves regularly apparently, and we were happy with the selection. I guess, not having been here before, that the bar used to be in the basement. Not anymore. It's upstairs in a big, high ceilings space with a big old hay elevator in the middle, a stage, and more seating on an upper level.
Even though Benton Harbor is like a scruffy little cousin to Gary IN, the Livery is a must stop if you are in the area. I would probably keep my Spidey senses on alert at night though.
