Stopped in this afternoon for lunch and a few brews on our way between Virginia and Grand Rapids. Was really looking forward to trying the Head Hunter IPA and it did not disappoint.

Walked in and, as would be expected at most locations, it was not terribly crowded on a Thursday afternoon at 11:30 AM. Off to the left when you walk in is a nice gift-shop-type area. We walked ahead to the bar and grabbed a seat. The bar is very, very large with multiple tap areas.

We had the choice of seven different Fat Head's beers on tap plus a single cask offering. (It looked like they have the capacity for two casks.) We selected the sample tray. In addition to their own beers, there were 10-15 other nice craft brews available. Props for this, first of all. Second, good job having a sample tray, which should be a requirement for any brewpub. I'd like something other than the generic sample glasses, though not many places have mini snifters for their sample trays, so I'll certainly give them a pass on that.

The vibe of the place is really cool. They've got brick walls with all sorts of Fat Head's logos and accomplishments. As you go into the dining area, they have all sorts of brewery logos painted on the walls--mostly those from the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic.

The service was pretty good, though not fantastic. The bartenders were quite friendly, though not the fastest. Still, we never sat for long when we were interested in something else. The food menu had plenty of offerings and the sandwiches were as advertised: very, very large. Mine was quite good.

Altogether, a very nice selection of house and outside craft beers at a good value. I'll definitely return for a sandwich and a Head Hunter the next time we're on our way through.

This place is the real deal. Got a sweet tour of the brewery and was gifted with some under and over poured bottles on the house. I bought some sweet merch and a growler of hop juju. What a bunch of awesome people they have at Fat Head's!

More of a resturan then the brewery itself, but still has a great tap list and everything on the menu is delicious. Wish they'd build one closer to where I live.
