We hit B.O.B. post 11pm when food service was done and the party was in full swing.
Now, I'm going to confess: I'd had a very long night before I got there. A. Very. Long. Night.
But my palate I think was at least 50% intact.
The building is gorgeous! The service was very good and the patrons were all having a good time. The music was good, and loud - which is crucial for a club-bar like this. The peoplewatching was pretty interesting.
The beer I found average. I had something that I was told was a Rye but I could not find on their website.
It wasn't bad! But it wasn't exceptional!
I'll have to go again in the daytime so I can really sit and have a conversation with one of their beers. When I do, I will definitely revise this review.

At the recent NHC in Grand Rapids, three of us headed across the street to have lunch at The Bob. An acronym for Big Old Building, this is a large 1903 grocery warehouse turned into a strange collection of venues. A small brewery lurks in the basement, Bobarino's pizza place is upstairs, a comedy club, dueling pianos, a steak house, and more! The brewery was closed (they should have opened up for NHC!) so we went to Bobarino's instead. We shared a sampler of their beers and those were all across the board: a nasty diacetyl IPA, but Crimson King Amber and Spaceboy Stout were both decent. The food was also decent but not special.

Another stop in during NHC and just a few blocks away from the convention center, B.O.B.'s House of Brews is in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids on the second floor of a 5? story building.
The bar was mostly empty except for a few handful of folks at the bar so I pulled up a seat. The waitress, while cute, was one of those that feels obligated to call every person of the opposite sex, hun, babes, darlin', <fill in the blank> which got old quick but I ordered the IPA per her recommendation out of the 7 beers on tap from the brewery. Nothing really that out of the ordinary, pretty typical line-up. (IPA, stout, brown ale, amber, blonde ale, etc). The IPA was fresh and had a nice hop flavor to it but nothing ground breaking.The interior was kind of generic, pool table, beer signs, it reminded me of a college-y spot. The sandwhich I ordered however was very tasty, pork belly.
In all I'd say if you're in GR for a decent amount of time check it out, but if your time is limited, there are so many other great places in the area - Don't bother.
