Like or hate the very midwest hodge-podge atmosphere, this place is THE destination in Mishawaka for craft beer. What was once a mildly seedy dive bar has sort of turned into a craft beer mecca in the area. Their selection can't be denied, with easily 20+ craft beers on tap and a huge selection in bottles. The prices are so cheap you're going to think they forgot to charge you for something when you pick up your tab. Plus the bartenders (especially Casey and DJ and Brina) are passionate about beer and they KNOW their stuff. Ask for a sample, they'll give it to you with their honest opinion and other suggestions based on what you like or have had before. They've got an ever-changing selection of great stuff, and a digital beer list that's miles long. The weekends can get packed, and a little low-brow, and you have to brave the karaoke bar for the best taps and bartenders any night....but it's well worth it. You'll find yourself going back just can't get most of their selection anywhere nearby. Make friends with some of the beer-drinking regulars on a weekday- they're always down for beer talk and sharing a pitcher. Also grab a pizza! They're pretty tasty.

Well after several years of "leeching" off other's review on BA, I decided to get off my lazy butt and review Bleacher's as my first review. The main reason is to let people know of the incredible cheap prices they have. On 07-14-11 I went in because because I heard that they had a large amount of offerings. This place is a BA dream. They had something like 20 taps total in 2 different rooms. I had a Yeti, a 3floyds Zombie Dust, and a Dark Horse (not sure what kind). All of these were $3.75 a pint. A pitcher of craft beer is normally $5.75, just $5 bucks on Tuesdays! Sunday is $2 craft bottle. As the previous reviewer stated I have NEVER seen prices this cheap for quality craft beer. The place is a bit of a dive but the bartender was friendly and offered me a tasting of any of their drafts. I am not sure this is a place I would want to be drinking on a Friday or Saturday night but the older crowd was harmless during the time we were there. I did not eat but they appear to have the normal pub grub style food.

This place went from a crappy dive bar, into a craft bar in what seems overnight. Standard bar, split into three sections. One room is nothing but pool tables, another room is for karaoke, third is just seating and booths.

New taps include DFH 60 Min, Three Floyds Pride & Joy, GI 312, Boulevard Tank 7 Saison and others. Bottles include various brews from Abita, Victory, DFH, Three Floyds, Schlafly and many others.

Prices are the cheapest I've ever seen for craft. Tuesday they have $5 pitchers on all craft beers, and Sundays are $2.00 bottles!

The food is standard bar food, but very good. Had the lg pizza last night with friends and everyone enjoyed it.

Honestly, this is not the bar it used to be. Bartender was extremely cool, he was very excited about the craft offerings. After talking to him, he is gonna sign up on BA and wants to learn more about craft beer. He even came to our table after we blew the keg of 60 Minute, and asked what we wanted him to put on draft next!

This is my new (old?) favorite bar now...
