Been reading alot about this new spot in TC so I made a point to wait around town until they opened so I could check it out.
Very beautiful, elegant and booshy lay out to the bar area, moden, but not over the top. The tap wall is very impressive, especially for being in Northern Michigan, big props.
They have about 40 taps, and they are varying from a handful of true Belgian, to another handful of Belgian style, and a good group of American Craft...some Short's, some good Dark Horse, Bell's, Founder's Imperial Stout...good stuff.
The bartender was knowledgeable and very friendly. They seem to be well trained, not obnoxious, and attentive.
They had some sort of family photo shoot going on inside the bar that started about a half hour after we got there...typical Traverse City bullcrap...
I want to make it clear that their website is quite misleading. If you follow the link on their to their tap list, it is broken down by style, and they have a listing for Trappist Ales, and a good list of nice beers. Rochefort 10, 8, etc...Those are not on tap. The whole time I'm checking out their website I'm saying "What, how", but alas they are in a bottle. I wish they would fix that, but maybe I'm the only one who is having problems with that. Not a big deal, but it is misleading!
A great new spot in Northern lower Michigan. I really like this place, albiet a bit houghty, but it is in TC...Good spot.
