My wife and I visited here the night before Winter Beer Fest. Atmosphere was cozy, not too bright (just right for night) and a cool baseball theme everywhere. Considering we are big baseball fans, this place fit right in for us. The bar has older baseball card prints underneath the lacquer with about 5-7 taps on behind it. Beyond that you can see their tanks they are using to brew with, and they are definitely not that big.

There were three stouts, one IPA and one Extra Pale on. The bartender told us it is usually hoppier beers, but they were experimenting with various stouts, which was right up my alley. I only had one stout, which was 'Bourbon Death to Flying Things' which was a barrel aged stout. Creamy, fluffy, slightly hot, tons of vanilla and a smooth backbone made this beer way too easy to drink at nearly 11%. For about $5.50 a 10oz pour, this beer was well worth it. They also did growler fills with prices on the board for everything, except the beer I was drinking.

We didn't eat any of the food, but it was the normal chips, peanuts, various snacks and pizzas. The pizza smelled incredible and nearly everyone there was eating one.

All in all a great time and well worth the trip.

Fun place with good beer and great food. My only complaints is that it's pretty small and that the beer menu is relatively small... the beer thing is a really small complaint, though, because I really enjoyed all the beers I tried.

Old firehouse re-purposed into a small brewery. Being born and raised in Michigan (I currently live in Ohio), I love the name.

Great vibe, great beer. I expected it to be a little bit larger than it actually is. Pretty good pizza as well.
