Petoskey Brewing, where do we start?!?
I'm reading some of the reviews below, and I'm going to piggy back on atone's (Nicks) notes...We stopped in and got 6 pours of beers, of course two were the barrel aged beers. When arriving at the table, by appearance, we had a very hard time determining which beer was the Impy Stout and which was the BW. Obviously after some further investigation it was fairly easy enough to tell...Neither the BB BW or BB Impy Stout stood out to us. The one beer that really stood out was the Imperial Pislner. Very clean tasting beer, and clocked in at a good 9% ABV. Good work on that one.
The atmosphere on this day was very interesting. As Nick also noted, the servers didn't really appear to give two shits. Now, I know you're up in Northern Michigan...I know it's hard to find people to work for you that give two shits about their job...but it's all about breeding that culture into your staff, and I feel like they lacked it. Short's has it, why can't you and other local breweries?
There were many many TV's turned on, all of which were showing the Michigan vs. Ohio State football game. Now I'm a football fan, but out of our group of 4, I was the only one. The other three took note of the poor atmosphere due to the fact that everyone in the pub was glued to a TV, with no emotional contact with each other. The beer was very much an after thought, at least on this day.
I liked having the back room sort of separate from the pub. I thought the taproom was a good size, and good use of space.
