Stopped here on a summer beer tour after hearing great things about this place. Was difficult to find, in an office building behind a beauty salon. Could see a truck unloading fresh hops though, so this had to be the place.

Inside of the place looked modern and hip. Really liked the right brain man design and wanted to get it on a t-shirt but they were all out. Onto the beer... I got a flight of beers they had and they were good but not great. It appeared that I had picked the wrong day to come, as they did not have any of their more bold beers available... and bold is what I want. Growlers were cheap so I picked up one for the road as a memento. I really wish they had some of their wilder stuff and can see something great could happen there yet again in Michigan. Maybe some summer I can again drive around stupid Lake Michigan to give it another try, or maybe better yet they'll make the car ferries more afforable for a change. (941 characters)

Enjoy certain beers within the signature series but more recent offerings at brew pub have not appealed to my personal preference. (130 characters)

A real gem in Northern Michigan. Right Brain distributes throughout the state, so be sure to grab a bottle (or can!). If you're touring Traverse City, it's a must visit brewery, without question. (195 characters)
