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.

Small place with room for about 30. I really enjoy coming here. No one here is uptight or too busy to talk with you. Above average beers. Very small food menu, but what they have is very good. Has a nice local pub feel to it. Was lucky enough to stop by here for their 1st anniversary party. Everyone there was very nice and enjoyed craft beer. They seemed to be a local crowd that was'nt into beer to the extent most of us are. Nice relaxing time with people that just enjoy beer other then the flavorless stuff put out by the Macros.

Decided to give this place a try over the weekend. It's small and reminds you of a converted garage. That's ok because I think the quality of beer made up for any other issues. The IPA was solid as was the twisted pumkin ale. One of the brewers was serving and he seemed nice, but was more interested in working on a scissor cutting project than smoozing with the clientele. Thought that was uncool. The beer was really good and the food coming out smelled delicious. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

My friend and it tried this place out on our last trip up north a few weeks ago. They have a small patio up front where they were giving a brewing demonstration. The bar area is small and same area where they have merchandise and already filled growlers to go. a separate area in the back had tables and was more for people ordering food which we did not. The beers on tap were about most that they had. The area behind bar seems to be where they do the brewing. I met the two young owners who were very personable. The beers themselves were pretty good but definitely showed they are in the early stages as a brewery.
