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.

For over two years Crunchy's was my go-to bar as a student at MSU (I miss it dearly). With a great selection of beer and an awesome dive bar atmosphere, its hard to find anything much better in the area.. Did I mention you can order a mop bucket full of beer?? =)
