I would in no way call this a craft beer bar. They do however feature a good amount of taps, and have a nice selection of Michigan beers flowing through them.

This is however, a great music venue, and just a cool bar. Nice, laid back vibe. The stage is pretty much floor level, tucked in a corner of the middle room in what is a very long and thin bar. Sound quality is great, and they bring some really nice Michigan (and out of Michigan) bands.

The food is more or less bar food+, and it really caters to that late night munchie fix type stuff. Kitchen is open late, so all the better. Definitely worth stopping at if there is some good tunes happening that night, but just for craft beer, you can probably afford to pass.

*This is a smokey enclave and does not have many windows so it appears dark but fits the mood. It has a fun outdoor patio open most days and music every weekend with reasonable cover charges. Other perks include two pool tables and two dart boards and plenty of poor quality tvs. The beer selection is decent for this city and they offer a lot of Michigan beers on tap and in bottles. The bottles are not listed so ask the bartender. They offer a great Friday happy hour with 5 beers in an ice bucket for 6 dollars. The staff is OK but go to the bar for help with beer choices as the wait staff tend not to be in the know.

*Edit: No more smoking inside of Michigan bars!
