It's a cool place with a great staff. Weather permitting they have an outside area in the back where you can throw bags or cornholoe. They have a limited food menu, but what they make is awesome like house cooked pulled pork, or my favorite the brewben made with Smoking Goose pastrami, locally baked bread, kraut and sauce,good stuff. Again, the staff is awesome and will give you as many samples as you want, they're all about you trying their beer, which they usually have 20 of on tap. They do growler fills but don't bottle, I think they did 1 limited release of an okay DIPA. Overall, a cool place to stop, AND it's pretty close to Weko beach, Warren Dunes and I-94.

This brewery just opened two weeks ago, so my wife and I put it at stop #2 on our 4-stop pub crawl this day. Consequently, we didn't want to drink much, so we had just a flight ($8) of 5 of the 15 beers that were available (plus we added two more samples). The brewery is on the main street in this tiny town, and we arrived in mid-afternoon so it was not busy. The interior is an average-looking pub setting with a long bar and a number of tables/chairs. A large window behind the bar allows a good view of the spotless stainless-steel equipment. The beers are listed in three tiers and are priced accordingly ($4-$6) along with the serving size (12 oz.) for the stronger beers (16 oz. for the other pours).

We liked each of the 7 beers that we sampled. The IPA had a slight butterscotch after-flavor (diacetyl?) as a flaw, but my wife could not detect it like I did, so it is a minor issue. Each of the beers was brewed fairly close to style, so for being a new brewery, the brewer has the beers dialed in about right. Some tweaking is likely to occur and improvements made, so future visitors should have a treat in store. Although none of the 7 beers that we sampled were able to knock our socks off, I'll still give the beers an overall grade somewhere between a B and C.

We did not try any of the food, and we didn't see any being ordered by any of the other patrons, so I can't comment on the eats, other than to say that there are 4 sandwiches on the menu, plus 3 snack plates.

Before writing this review I checked the brewery's website again for some details, and I noticed that they just opened a beer garden, which must be behind the brewery because the pub is in a storefront setting with other businesses on both sides of it. I'd go back here someday just to sit in the beer garden and drink some more of their beers.

A place that puts out a few outstanding beers, and a bunch of good ones. 16 tons is awesome!
