Notes:
This brewery is most easily found by parking in the lot on the west side of the building and going into the building's central hallway thru an entrance on the side of the building, or going in thru the N. 1st Street door where the brewery's patio is located. There are only small signs on the doors to identify the brewery.

Came here for the BBA stout(Morning Wood) release at 9am. Located in the downtown area and close to the water. This looks like a great area to spend time during the warm summer months. 9 in the morning and people were bringing in griddles to cook pancakes and such. Rather large crowd for a sat. morning. Has a very charming local feel and seems this is a place where you can just come in and relax for a while with a good beer. They have a good number of taps for a small pub. No food is available so make sure you eat first. Staff seemed up to speed on craft beer and able to answer all my questions. The beers were above average. This is a place I will come back to in the warm months to spend more time.

Best thing about Grand Haven! This is the one place my wife and I must go when we visit family. Love the chill Lebowski feel in this historic building.

Odd Sides always has a substantial list of beers on tap, great variety and some amazing brews! It gets packed on Friday and Saturday nights when they have entrainment, but otherwise the vibe is friendly with knowledge and helpful bar
staff. There are no staff waiting tables and food choices are basically bagged popcorn and chips, but we often stop at the bakery on the next block and pick up a couple of their excellent soft pretzels to take to Odd Sides.

I've been in here quite a few times with my Wife (typically when we're in Grand Haven checking out Lake Michigan). The staff seems to know their beer well, and they work hard to keep the waiting to a minimum. Every time we've been there, I've seen at least 2-3+ BA beers available, in addition to another 15 or so other options (quite a few different styles as well). While I have had a few of their beers that missed the mark (for me), the majority are very enjoyable.

The atmosphere in the pub is just awesome. Even on busy days (like releases), most of the customers are very laid back and friendly. The ONLY downside (if there is one), is that they don't serve food.

Awesome place, wish the brewery wasn't grouped with other stores. The Hipster Brunch is one of my all time favorites. Grand Haven is an awesome beach town

Fantastic brewpub. Went for the hipster brunch stout release. Maybe not the best time for a review but felt I had to give some kudos to their awesome staff who put in major work to ensure everyone left happy. Fantastic range of their beers on tap. The brewpub is housed in some kind of old mill which has wonderful appeal. Will go back again.
