This brewery is most easily found by parking in the lot on the west side of the building and going into the building's central hallway thru an entrance on the side of the building, or going in thru the N. 1st Street door where the brewery's patio is located. There are only small signs on the doors to identify the brewery.

The taproom is inside of an old factory building, with a lot of large would beams. There are a mix of high and low top tables and a couple of couches in the corner along with a good sized bar, I would guess about 15 stools. All of the beer sampled where good, there were a few that were great, a hoppy wheat, a session
IPA and a few sours. Service was walk up at the bar, the employees knew about the beers and did a good job with the amount of people in the place. They had a good mix of beers on tap, 2 sours, a Belgian, and a few ales I think thee were about 10 beers on total. I only wish I would have made the trip earlier. (629 characters)

Good place to grab some brew for sure and maybe fill a growler or 2. Food selection quite lacking. Just popcorn and chips. (122 characters)

I made my first visit to Odd Side Ales on Black Friday 2014 for their Hipster Brunch Stout and Morning Wood Stout release. They opened at 9:00AM. Odd Side's location is in an old refurbished warehouse (I think) on the first floor. They ran their new beer release very efficiently. Patrons were encouraged to bring their own breakfast with them that particular day and I think about half the people did.

I was a little surprised at how small their taproom was although I guess I shouldn't be seeing how they have only been in business since 2010. All of their seating filled rather quickly that morning. They have a variety of seating and tables in their taproom. As we waited for them to open their doors that day, they received a table top Pacman game and one of those table top hockey games in the big plastic bubble. I personally love that hockey game but no one was playing it that day.

Odd Side hit it out of the park that day with the release of Hipster Brunch Stout and Morning Wood Stout. Those were both 20 oz. pours for $6. They had about 15 other beers on their taplist that day including BBA Imperial Mayan Mocha Stout and a peanut butter stout that looked very enticing to me. But Black Friday was all about Hipster and Morning Wood.

Odd Side continues to step up their game in the state of Michigan. Their beers are becoming more and more visible in bottle shops. The biggest hit that I can give Odd Side for my rating is their smaller taproom space. As they continue to grow, I'm sure they will address this issue. I'm guessing their existing space is the right size for them most of the time. But a special event for them like their Black Friday release will challenge the comfort of their patrons. I will definitely go back again. (1,767 characters)
