I had this place pegged as one of my lunch time destinations while on my MI tour. First off, Holland is a super cool little town that is worth visiting itself. The brewpub is on the corner of the main drag and a side street in a picturesque town center.

I parked around the back of the building and entered through the patio area. It was a semi-rainy/overcast day so the patio was not functioning.

I entered a large, open, airy/light room with a lot of tables and a huge cement bar running along the left side. You pass some brewing equipment (almost artwork like) along the way. Once in the main bar area, I realized that I entered under a loft that houses additional seating. Through a doorway from the bar, you enter a little gift shop are that has NH stuff (shirts, hats, glasses) and beer to go. They also have pre-made gift baskets available. Through another door there appeared to be additional seating (didn't venture there though).

I sat back at the bar and selected a draft that was not bottled (Scotch Ale) and a sandwich. The menu is pretty diverse and unique...it fits in well with the trendy area and décor. They had most of their beer available on draft, including their High Gravity Series.

The bartender was friendly and helpful. She asked me what types of beer I liked and made suggestions.

All in all, this is one of the best brew pubs I have been to. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is a fan of beer or even a fan of good food. (1,475 characters)

Did the brewery tour for $10, not the brewpub, so ratings are for that. Great tour of the (ever expanding) brewery and distillery. Nice slow pace, 4 samples of 4 oz pours, plus tiny tastes of their spirits. And a logo'd pint glass at the end. Well worth the price for sure. (273 characters)

Hands down my favorite brew pub in Michigan. The service is fantastic and they also make a bunch of tasty spirits that they like to have you sample. I went back and bought many bottles of beer and knickerbocker gin and zeppelin bend whiskey. I highly recommend this place to everyone. (284 characters)

Great vibe to this place. I've been several times and the atmosphere and look it the bar/eatery area. Lots of polished wood give it a clean feel. I'm always a fan of being able to see the brewing equipment when I visit and eat at a brewery. I went last over St. Pats weekend so it was packed inside. The noise was still not over powering and there was plenty of room for all. The only knock is the limited parking downtown.

Service was spectacular given how busy they were. We got seated at the bar, ordered a few beers and food. The beers came quick and the good about 15 min after. Again being packed to the doors this was fantastic work from the kitchen area.

They had several seasonals to go along with the mainstays. They also offered 4 different cask selections as well. Dragons milk was available on tap and on cask! Very cool to see a wide variety of styles and presentations.

Overall a must visit for beer folks headed to the west side of Michigan. (963 characters)
