Stop #334 on my world brewery/brewpub tour.

Thursday around 6:30 with a nasty winter storm rolling in from the west.

I've passed on Dark Horse a number of times while traveling through south central Michigan. Not really sure why. I think I thought Marshall was not really a town and Dark Horse may be some sort of sketchy local bar. Not the case at all as Marshall is a modest town and Dark Horse was comfortably full of cheery locals (some with their families).

I sat at the bar. The "kitchen" is kinda part of the end of the bar out in the open. Pizza oven and no frier that I could see.

Laminated 8.5 x 11 print out complete beer list with crayon X on what is available. Nice idea so everyone can read details of beers and it's easy to update.

Tres Blueberry Stout
Fore Smoked Stout
Plead the Fifth Imperial Stout (I had, nice)
Thirsty Trout Porter
Double Crooked Tree IPA
Crooked Tree IPA
Amber Ale (Belgian yeast, my first beer of the night)
Raspberry Ale
Reserve Special Black Bier Ale
Boffo Brown Ale

I love spicy food and had a sandwich on spent bread with spent brewers grain. It was very, very spicy. I wonder if they made a mistake or something. In any case it was very good.

Would recommend and will return when passing through in the future.
