This was my third microbrewery on my way back from the Michigan spring game. This was by far my favorite. It is located at the Oliver House.
I walked in and was met by brick walls and shelves on the right hand side on which were perched vintage beer cans. The place was clean and appeared pretty nice. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful in beer descriptions.
I tried the hazelnut porter, barley wine, and Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout. They were all good beers, but the latter was absolutely delicious. I had to get a growler of that. The growlers were very low priced. A lot of growlers went for $7.50. Of course my selection was $18, but that is in line with a lot of brewpubs.
I did not eat, but my friend ordered some riblets. The bartender said that they looked overcooked and went back and had the chef make a fresh batch. I thought that was a very classy thing to do. EDIT: I did eat on my second trip and the food was amazing! I was even more impressed on my second trip. Very friendly staff.
Overall, I was impressed with this place. I will have to make this a stop on my way to and from Michigan.
