Cool place. Kind of small and tends to get busy. Stopped by twice in a weekend when in Sawyer. First was on Friday, late afternoon. Hand full of people when we arrived and the placed was getting pretty full by the time we left. Stopped by again Saturday afternoon to refill a couple growlers and the place was packed. The service is great, though. They try to get to customers right away but are still very friendly, informative, and willing to take time with each customer. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Seemed like they have a lot of regulars. Didn't get a chance to try the food but the beers were solid. They had quite a variety. All were decent but many were not quite as full flavored or bodied for my tastes. Having said that, they did have some exceptional beers which was the reason for the return trip the next day. Seems like weekends are very busy, especially since I don't think much else is happening in Sawyer, MI, so if you catch it on a off day, you won't have any problem grabbing a seat.

Just a couple of blocks east of I-94, it is very easy access. I had the brisket sandwich and it was very good, not Texas quality, but extremely good for Michigan. The place was busy and our waitress was occupied by a needy table of twelve. Another waitress helped her out and ensured we didn't go dry. A little loud because it was crowded but we could talk at our table of four. The beer selection had something for everyone and I loved the Star Chicken IPA. I can't wait to go back.

Not a bad place to pull off the Highway (I-94) and grab some grub.
Pluses are: patio / beer garden; friendly waitstaff; good food; on-premises beer processing; growlers to-go; clean restrooms; generous deals on draft beer if you want to join their beer-mug club
Minuses are: train tracks are right up against the patio / beer garden (really loud); music on the PA was too loud and quite unpleasant (that's a personal preference... I am mid-50s)

Visited during Labor Day weekend.

The place was packed, but waited for 45 minutes across the street at the annex and sipped a Brother Benjamin

Went next door when we were called, and had a flight with a friend. Beer selection was great.

If you get the food, then get the BBQ/smoked meats as all smoking/BBQing is done in-house.

Service was "meh", but overall a great time.,

Great spot. Definitely the cool local hang out, packed at all hours of the day. Food is decent - slightly better than serviceable though not entirely generous or creative - but the beer selection is broad and solid. On a sunny day the outdoor areas across the street are a win.

Nice menu and good selection of beers. They have a flight option for a reasonable cost. We walked in and were seated right away. Easy to get to. Not too far from I94.
