This scoring shouldn't discourage people from attending as I feel Hideout is a great stop in Grand Rapids.

A-Very divey...it's built in an old hot tub rental warehouse. Kind of still smells like chlorine. Have fun loft with shuffleboard and vintage video games systems. I believe they have open mic and performers sometimes.

Q-Beers are great tasting but have to assume they're using flavor additives in the majority (with offerings like Root Beer Stout, Tutti Frutti Cream Ale, Coconut Almond Brown, etc.).

S- They usually have 25-35 different beers on tap with a few solid nitro offerings. Their taps rotate over pretty quickly as they seem to have a half dozen new brews on tap every week. You can almost be assured to stumble upon a style that you've never seen before. I've had Hot Dog beer, Bacon Stouts, etc.

F-Free popcorn a limited menu of mainly reheated, frozen bar food like nachos, bosco sticks, etc.

V-A little bit pricier than you'd expect for the quality. Pints start at $4.25 for mainstays and then go up to $6 for specialties.

O-Like I said, give it a shot and you won't be disappointed. Need to work a little bit on consistency but it's a fun little dive brewery and is usually always quiet.

Went to Hideout Brewing Company a few weeks ago. It really is a little hole in the wall, but it's a pretty good atmosphere, wasn't crazy busy, and had video games & darts upstairs. They have free bags of chips & pretzels around the bar. Bartender was a little rude, but I think that's just the vibe they're going for. I'll definitely go again at some point.

Very unique place. Old video games upstairs and some off the wall beers. Quality isn't up there with founders but not many breweries are. You will definitely wonder if you are heading to the right place. Worth checking out and bombers to go are very reasonably priced. $5-$7 for everything

Awesome place that is a literal hideout. Dive bar with a huge selection of average to below average beer. Really like the low key vibe.

My favorite brewery to visit, new beer every Friday, great atmosphere. Tons of old video game systems to play upstairs for free. Mainstay beers are great, new recipes are always interesting.

This is a cool local watering hole in the wall kind of a brewery. It is off the beaten path and is located in an old hot tub/jacuzzi store so there is an odd lingering smell of chlorine. The place has a burglar/pro-hibition theme. I did not have any food when I was there. They had a surprisingly large taplist on with well over 20 beers on tap when I was there. They had a large variety of styles and a lot of experimental beers on tap. I had a flight and everything I had was mostly good and some were excellent. I only had one beer that was run of the road. I would recommend this brewery to anyone that is looking for a place that has a variety of beers on tap whether they be new to craft beer or a connoisseur you will find something you like on tap here. I look forward to going back to Hideout again one day!
