This is a huge building near the heart of downtown Grand Rapids that houses several different types of restaurants that all serve the house beers.
Atmosphere is pretty classy, alot of people obviously coming here more for the food and kitsch than the beer. A bit too uppity for me, but anyone can blend in.

I tried a sampler and all the beers were decent. Nothing stood out or had me singing its praises, but the beers were drinkable and inoffensive.

Service was ok, again kind of suited for the richer crowd. It seemed if you were ordering beer at the bar, they didn't have time for you, although they poured me a flat porter and kingly took it back.

Several different colors of beer on tap, although not a huge range of flavor.

Food was decent, we ate at the kabob place, which was pretty good, but very expensive. Overall a neat concept, but its apparent that you can't run several high scale restaurants and still make really good beer.
