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. (535 characters)

V- Very small place, tin roof shack, alright for a few drinks but not really conducive to eating.

Q- Food is just stuff made on a panini press but once a week the do burgers on a grill outside. Drinks are very good, the seem to release a new pub only beer each week and they have meads that are pub only.

S- Only had one guy doing things when I was there on a weekday afternoon. Wasn't too big a deal as there were only a few people there. Guy was very nice and talkative about beer and upcoming releases.

S- Good, a few dark beers, 3-4 hoppy things, occasionally they have a sour which are usually pretty good, a few different meads on tap as well.

Overall I'd say the drinks are worth the trip but maybe come here for a few drinks then go to Bell's or Latitude 42 for food and obviously more beer. (809 characters)

Nice small establishment with a well selection of on taps. Friday is a 6 sample flight for six bucks. The waitress was both very friendly and knowledgeable. Many what appeared to be local patrons, which to me is always a good sign. I would suggest this small brewery/eatery if you are in the Paw Paw area. (309 characters)

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. (775 characters)

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. (446 characters)
