Day two of our fifth Big Beer Adventure took us to Traverse City. While the main objective was Right Brain, the convenient colocation of North Peak meant that we could not ignore it, even if we felt no overwhelming urgency to visit. Having visited, we understand the original sentiment.

While the building itself is charming and industrial archeology, not far from the water front, the interior is rather bland and, it must be said, more along the lines of TGIF. I'm always a bit suspicious when large plasma TVs play too prominent a role in the decor.

We confess to not giving the complete beer list a fair shot but rather based our critique on a couple of pours; that and the somewhat defensive disinterest of the bartender. He seemed rather offended by my observation that the imperial red needed to be a bit warmer (not a negative statement but merely one saying I think I will like it better as it warms up).

Given that Traverse City is a big vacation town, or so it seems, i imagine that a lot of business comes from occasional visitors rather than a hardcore base. I couldn't imagine being a regular there myself.

Walked in on a summer Saturday evening and got seated right away. The place is clean and bright, with the industrial look that others have mentioned.

Our waitress was prompt, courteous and knowledgable about the menu but she see didn't really seem at ease. She seemed confused about the beer sampler, but it came quickly once ordered.

The food came out fast, hot and delicious. I had the skirt steak which came out exactly medium rare as ordered, my wife got the fish. Both entrees were delicious, although the fish was a little too greasy.

Overall, it was a fun place with good food and nice beer.
