I initially had trouble finding this place because it shares an entrance with a salon. Once inside, I notice the open ceiling where the piping and such is visible. Once we got the attention of one of the bartenders, we finally got our drinks. I don't know what was up because when I ordered some of their more intense offerings, I kept getting the "are you sure...?" question. Eventually the bartender ended up being pretty cool and even gave us directions up to the new Jolly Pumpkin restaurant on Old Mission Peninsula. The selection was pretty good and included a couple of barrel aged beers, a tripel, and a bunch of their 'regular' offerings. If I am ever up in the area again, I will most definitely make it a point to go back to this establishment. (755 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)
