I stopped here with the family for lunch on vacation and liked the place. NPBC is more of a restaurant than a ber/brewery, but I left satisfied. I tried the sampler and the beer was good - not great. I liked the fact that they had a good range of beers from golden ales to cask brews. The food was not great - my burger was overcooked, but the waitress was nice. She didn't know a ton about the beers but was kind enough to go and as the brewer. I wish I could have tried more beers as they had a great selection (lots of beers that have yet to be reviewed).

The place is absolutely beautiful. I hear that the food is great, but we did not eat. there was 3 of us that ordered beers. We each ordered different beers. All the beers came out with very large bubbles or foamy heads. Each of the beers tasted like soap. This includes the cask beer that they had that night. I hope that this was a fluke and we just went on a night that they cleaned the lines. On this night, we all left with 3/4 of a pint on the bar.

Beer is very passable. Food is meh. Big time tourist destination. They are one of the oldest brewpubs in Traverse City and do very well given their location. Nice building. Staff is young and while helpful, kinda douchey. Menu is joe average fare from frozen food supplier without much creativity (if Applebee's is your thing, you'll be fine eating here). Buy the beer in any local store without disappointment or astonishment if you want to try it. Many better choices in town for food.
