We took a wrong turn and just happened to be passing through Pawpaw, Mi. on the way south from our Mi pub crawl. I knew the pub was here so we checked it out. It is small with about an 8 seat bar that was of soapstone or something with comfortable metal backed chairs. There is also seating outside and about 8 or so tables inside.
We asked for 4 samples which were about 4oz and they were all very good. I especially liked King James Scotch Ale, but at 10% and a long drive ahead, the sampler was perfect. Keith, the very friendly bartender, also fixed us some very tasty sandwiches. They also have their beer in bottles and fill growlers.
This pub was a great discovery and we look forward to visiting again. We highly recommend this laid back place and the great beer.

Very cool little place. This is a small hole in the wall, but the atmosphere is funky and the beer is very good. I tried a sampler of 6 beers and they were all good to great. We did not eat, so can’t comment on the food. I would say this is yet another must stop if you are driving the I-94 brewery corridor between the Indiana border and Kalamazoo. If you are looking for small, homey, funky place with great beer, this should be on your list.

Very small brewery in southern michigan. The staff is always friendly and keep us coming back whenever we are in town. There is a low selection of beer but I am yet to find one I do not like to drink. They have about 6 beers normally, but a pretty cool little selection of yeast strands and home brewing equipment. It can be a little bit pricey. They are often brewing when you visit and the smell from the kettles is always welcome. If you are in town it may be worth it to check them out, they don't have the facility that bell's does, and their beer is not founder's quality, but the staff is knowledgeable and friendly and the beer is still quite tasty.

I was originally from the area but moved away and discovered this gem when a friend brought me there for lunch on a visit. It's a wonderful "hole in the wall" type place and a great addition to the area. I will say that I went for lunch during one of the days they sell prime rib burgers for 5$ and it was killer! The beers are very good as well, I ordered a flight to try a wide variety and truly enjoyed them all. If you live in the area I would suggest looking into their beer club. I can't remember the specifics but i think my buddy said it takes a dollar off of every beer plus you get a fancy stein. They mostly serve sandwiches and other simple things when it comes to the food. I had a great overall experience and would recommend it to any craft beer enthusiast in the area. I will definitely go back when I get chance.

Cool little joint in Paw Paw. Good beers, cheap food and great service. We just ordered some appetizers and a flight of four beers. They played some great music and were grilling prime rib burgers which they were selling for $5! Very impressed and will definitely return.

A small place that does not look particularly inviting (or even good) from the outside or the first impression of the inside either. From the looks of the place you figure the food/beer either have to be very good, or you fear for your health. Fortunately, for all the lack of ambiance, the food is good and the beer very good. The service was friendly and attentive.

It is the sort of very low key, no frills sort of neighborhood place one could enjoy as a regular hang out.

A very nice addition to the W. Michigan craft brewery scene, especially if you like the smaller "nano brewery" establishments. An excellent, if perhaps basic, line-up of very well made beers, from the Weiss, an interesting English Mild, a solid Pale Ale, and (probably the best) a Stout. Both customers and servers extremely welcoming, so it's absolutely worth your time.

Located on Michigan Ave on the east side of Paw Paw. Small place with seating for 8-10 at the bar,and a few tables.

The beers I tried were all really good,the Scotch ale,IPA,and Black IPA were all very nice indeed. I was very impressed with the beer quality. 7-8 different beers to choose from,no guest taps. Pints,or 20 oz servings available.Prices were very reasonable.

Service was good,despite being quite busy. Mostly local customers,and they were friendly,and fun to talk with.

Did not try the limited food options.

A worthwhile stop,we will return.
