Stumbled upon Clam Lake Beer Co. a couple weeks back while passing through the Cadillac area. This is a welcomed addition to this part of the state, as there are very few options to get a good beer while travelling through the northern part of Lower Michigan, without actually committing to the lake shore route, or heading all the way over to Short's. This is perfect.

They just opened in the summer of 2013, and you can tell they put alot of work into an older historic building. Nice lighting, beautiful bar, open kitchen. They have some tables in a back room that is semi-secluded from the rest of the bar, a touch quieter. Kind of a sports bar vibe, as they have at least a half dozen televisions around the joint, including a couple in that secluded back room, almost as a private TV.

They had about 40 drafts...MOST of them were craft choices, but they also had Bud Light and some other swill on tap. I guess you have to try and please everyone? They did have good selection of drafts, and I'd assume those will improve as they get more clout with their local distributors. The bartender informed me that they are putting a small brew house in downstairs, and this place will eventually be a brewpub. Even better. Maybe get those BMC's off tap, and replace them with your own light bodied lagers and ales.

The food menu was diverse, featuring a brick pizza oven. Looks like they did some other things in the brick oven as well, including sandwiches and quesadilla's.

I think they will do fine. Enough local clientele to make the place work, and then in the summer, Cadillac booms with people from all over. Good luck to them, it's a welcomed addition to the Michigan beer scene, and I know every time I am travelling to Grand Rapids I will make it a point to stop and have a quick pint.
