Visited 3 weeks after opening. It became apparent upon walking in, that they took notes from their former Founders brewing past and copied many of Founders qualities...seemed like a copy cat.
Tried a flight of the beers and 2 pints...average to below average. Their imperial stout was much below any expectations of an imperial stout such as Founders Imp Stout, Dark Horse, or Expedition Stout.
The place was packed, but I would estimate 90% of the people that were there the night I was there, would be just as happy with a Blue Moon as they would a high quality craft beer.
With so many solid offerings in the area with a much better atmosphere, menu, and locale, once is enough for me...unless, they really ramp it up. I overheard someone while I was there say, "I love this Strong Ale, it really tastes like Two-Hearted Ale". If that doesn't speak volumes to the low quality of the beers, I don't know what does.

Atmosphere: good brewery atmosphere. Looks like they have lots of cool hop plants when it's not covered in snow. Nice big open layout. Shuffleboard. Good view of the brewing area.
Quality: I tried probably 4 or so of there beers some were great and some were good. No real duds that I found. Nothing to complain about
Service: good service and growler fillers. Never found myself neglect or overly served
Selection: good large variety. Lots of barrel aged beers right now. Good choice of styles lots of good options. You can get anything in anysize for there or to go.
Overall: great beer great prices and a good place to hang out. Id recommend it for anyone who is in the area. surely will be looking for their beer now. One of the must visits in the Grand Rapids area
