Crunchy's is a study in contradictions. This bar is located a stone's throw away from MSU campus, and the decor reminds you of it...the atmosphere is something that any frat member would be comfortable with, as is the availability of beer in buckets...which are always a hot seller. The place itself though is definitely oriented toward the educated beer drinker...while they have a couple of macros on tap, and a few more in the fridge, the big emphasis is clearly on local micros as they carry a range of stuff from Bells and Founders to Dark Horse, Arcadia, King, Atwater Block, Short's and more, as well as some non-locals.

The staff is solid, quick service and friendly at that. The bar food is tasty and the price is reasonable. In terms of the beers, the prices are quite affordable and the selection is in a state of constant rotation.

Crunchy's, in short, is easily the best place to get a beer in Lansing. It's not an epic, top of the line beer bar by any means, but for a small local place it has a remarkable number of taps, and offers brews at an affordable price.

I was with my son checking out Spartan Stadium and asked someone else who happened to be an alum where a good place for lunch was and he mentioned Crunchy's for burgers. Headed over here expecting the likes of beer pong and lots of BMC stuff and was extremely pleasantly surprised to find what has got to be one of the top 10 beer lists of anywhere I've been. The menu has good, honest descriptions while the selection leans heavily toward Michigan with more common micros (but more obscure like Lagunitas Sonoma County Stout, Dogfish 61) from the coasts. I had a bratburger that was outstanding and my son enjoyed the beef tacos. They also have tater tots which I never realized before (most of my local watering holes are too classy) are the perfect palette cleanser while working through a flight. 24 beers on tap and nothing outrageously priced, though I'd say there wasn't too much sessionable or summer-oriented.
