Only a 5 minute walk from my house! Have visited many times since I moved to Ann Arbor and I will keep coming back. Definitely the best brew-pub in A2 with Grizzly Peak not far behind. Warm, cozy, woodsy-pub atmosphere. Slight hippy feel to it, but not too bad. Large windows look out on Washington and to outdoor tables in the summertime. Service is good, but not exceptional. More than willing to let you try samples of their brews. Speaking of brews, there is a nice beer menu listing house taps and house bottles along with Belgian bottles. They usually keep the menus up to date. Lots of different styles brewed here with varying success. The cask IPA is very good and so is the alt. Usually have some stronger (10oz.) styles as well. Good glassware. They seem prone to running out of beers a lot, so don't expect to have a full range of choices (may be due to their recent bottling venture?). Aside from tap/cask beers, they also have a few house Belgian-style ales in 750 ml bottles. Their guest Belgian bottle list is great too, with 20+ types at very reasonable prices (e.g. Cantillon Kriek 750 ml for $8). Food is decent with the garlic fries and the fish and chips being my favorites. Glad to have this place so close, but I wish they could keep more beers going! (1,274 characters)

This was a quick stop drank 2 pints. One a very meh sour and a nice chili porter. Service was self service to the bar. The bar tender was a bit slow. The selection was what was expected with a couple positive bumps. The food I did not try. We used to have an option for N/A. So I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say food is at least average and edible. (364 characters)
