February 2013. On our way back home from Grand Rapids, we made it a point to stop in Marshall, MI for an evening to visit Dark Horse Brewing Company. They have always brewed some of my favorite beers (Plead The 5th Imperial Stout is particularly tasty), and my dad highly recommended the brewery's atmosphere and food.
My dad couldn't have been more right about the atmosphere. I've never been inside a bar quite like it. It's almost like an old-time cabin and features mugs all across the ceiling throughout the entire place. The pub is connected to the actual brewery that sits behind it. For $7 each our group got to take a tour, on which Miles informed us of their history and the operations of Dark Horse. The tour ended up in the VIP tasting room, where we sampled six beers and took part in an extended chat about all sorts of things. Miles is one cool dude, extremely real and personable and helped put a memorable stamp on our trip.
The quality, service, and food were all just about perfect. We ended up staying nearly 9 hours. it was a Sunday evening, on which they normally close early-ish, but they extended their hours because we wanted to enjoy it a bit more. They were unbelievably nice people, all of them.
