Dark Horse was the grand finale on my MI tour. Managed to get in here just in time for lunch on a weekday. From the outside, you would think you were going into a neighborhood garage rather than a first class brewpub.
The first thing you notice as you enter is the mugs. The mugs...wow...they cover the ceiling, the walls, almost everything. The wall space remaining is rustic wood (along with the floor...might even be dirt?).
I ventured outside while my food was cooking...it looks like they are constructing a really sweet outdoor seating area complete with bar. You can watch the employees pick hops right off the vine...how cool is that!!
They have a really cool ceiling mounted tap system which, from what a mug club member told me, is relatively new. The tap handles are awesome...be sure to take notice if you are there...
The bartender/waitress was helpful and friendly. They had around a dozen or so taps with most of their seasonal offerings available.
If you are driving through MI, be sure to do yourself a favor and stop here...very unique and worth going out of the way for!
