Visited while on vacation in Northern Michigan. The kids had passed out for the night, and the in-laws volunteered to take watch so the wife and I could head out. Right Brain was one of two breweries open till midnight instead of 11,so we headed there (it was already 9:30). Location threw us off a little ; besides being dark out, the pub is located in what looks like a combo warehouse /office suite from the outside at the end of a residential street adjacent to railroad tracks. We checked the address twice (almost thought it might be the production facility and not the pub), and headed in.

Pub is wide and high-ceilinged, with art and memorabilia everywhere. There was a small room set aside with games and kids toys for families. Being a late hour during the week, we were two of only about a half dozen people there. Kitchen was closed, so we missed out on the waffle sandwiches ; the Cherry Kiss hummus made up for it.

Service was fast, friendly, and informative. Beer was good to excellent. Will hit again when in town.

Pretty disappointing visit. The selection of beer on tap was very mediocre, nothing terrible, but nothing great either. Mostly just flavorless.
The food is below average in quality with portions being very small, and the waffle used for a bun on every sandwich was not a very good substitute, being flavorless and almost mushy.
The locals do seem to like the beer, as I saw quite a few bring in the clear growlers used by Right Brain.
One thing for sure with this place is the employees have the neck-beards down pat.
