vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3 | service: 2.5 | selection: 3 | food: 3.5

Generic looking interior with semi modern interior, BMC, Guinness beer signs, irish flag, a nice Belgian beer label poster in a frame. 12 bar stools surround a nice wooden bar with an additional 13 stools in the bar area. In addition to all of that is about 50 seats and benches at tables throughout. There are probably 20 tables in total. Good music plays through the pub such as
1. Ramones
2. Buddy Holly
3. Elvis Costello
4. The Beach Boys

There are some brewery type canisters on the far side of the dining hall and a nice chalk board with the day's current tap list on them. Reasonable menus slipped into plastic covers listed the available drafts as well. They do not apparently bottle but growlers were obviously available as I saw several customers carrying them out and other, empty ones, on the bar. There is a "mug club" as well as available souvenirs from the brewpub. It shares a wall with an Antiques mall just outside of the middle of Saugutuck. I think that it might actually be in the village of Douglas, MI.

Service: Lacking as my wife and I ordered three items and only two were delivered. Our waitress was kind and had reasonable knowledge of the beers available but we did not press her for information.

Quality: Fair. This is a brewpub intended to please passersby and clearly does not push any limit of artisan beers.

Atmosphere. Fair with basic decoration. I will say that it is comfortable, however.

Food: I had a chicken salad wrap with chips and my wife had a turkey sandwich with chips which were each $6.25. They were nicely prepared but nothing gourmet. I doubt that the operators are striving for such a label, however.

Value: Good and inexpensive I think.

Notes: Again, this is a local brewery that appears to simply strive for local approval.
