I went here with my father and brother-in-law while on vacation in Michigan. I had heard about this small satellite brewery from the main brewery of Jolly Pumpkin which is located in Dexter, Michigan.

This is located behind the "Old Mission" and currently is not fully operational. The bartender (who was very polite) told us how they were still in the process of getting the brewery on site up and running. No matter, the three of us ordered a pint of Bam Bière and instead of staying in the actual bar (which was spacious and decorated nicely) we instead choose to take the pint outside to the deck in front of "Old Mission" and enjoy the beautiful landscape. It was truly relaxing and quite an experience enjoying this fine brew with family looking over a glistening lake Michigan, shaded by the tall pine trees, and feeling the wind come off of the lake.

If anyone is ever around Traverse City, this is a nice little side trip to make. Also, they had numerous Jolly Pumpkin bombers for sale at the bar.
