This is ground zero for any and all beer geeks in Michigan. Just a little taphouse in front their brewery, itself a smallish industrial building behind a gas station just off the interstate. The big outdoor fermenters might be mistaken for grain silos. But everyone inside loves their beers and enjoys sharing the love with anyone interested. A generous 12 beers on tap makes for one of the biggest sampler trays I've ever had. Then the manager gave us a tour of the works, and brought out bottles of any beers they didn't have on tap. The Celis is flowing very well there, along with a few contract brands (including a limited edition revival of Sebewaing for Sebewaing Township's 150th anniversary). Great atmosphere with some fine chili being cooked right in the brewhouse, and a barrel of peanuts, which means you just throw your shells on the floor. Plenty of take-home, an outdoor beer garden, and the next building is a homebrew and breweriana shop. If you're traveling anywhere near Lansing, this should be your first choice of beer stops.

Stopped in here after seeing a small sign while driving west on I-96. Not having heard of the place or any of their beers, I was impressed to see 12 brews on tap. It's a small place with room for about 8 at the bar and perhaps 30 at the tables. I sat down next to this eccentric character who had an insatiable appetite for peanuts...shells are allowed on the floor:) After expousing my enthusiasm for beeradvocate.com to the bartender, a guy walks in, sits down and orders an imperial stout. Hehe, I recognized this character as Mike (sackaroo) from his column in the online MSU paper, so he pulled up a seat and we enjoyed our brews and talked about good beer. I was impressed by the 5 samples I had, and plan on returning tomorrow to try the rest. They have a good assortment of brews, including the recaptured Celis lineup which they now exclusively brew and distribute to Texas. There is a cooler filled with 6'ers and you can make your own sampler pack for $8. The ceiling is adorned with hundreds of coasters of brewpubs from all over the states, most of which I recognized. The place was quiet when I was there in the middle of the afternoon, tucked away behind a gas station, and situated next to the relocated new home of Things-Beer, a friendly and well-stocked homebrew shop.
