Small place with room for about 30. I really enjoy coming here. No one here is uptight or too busy to talk with you. Above average beers. Very small food menu, but what they have is very good. Has a nice local pub feel to it. Was lucky enough to stop by here for their 1st anniversary party. Everyone there was very nice and enjoyed craft beer. They seemed to be a local crowd that was'nt into beer to the extent most of us are. Nice relaxing time with people that just enjoy beer other then the flavorless stuff put out by the Macros.

Small, clean facility wit a very relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. The 7 beers I tried were all high quality and true to style. They specialize in panini sandwiches. The three people in my group each had one and all three sandwiches were delicious. We also made a stop at their brewing/gift shop facility several blocks away and picked up a pint glass and several bombers to take home with us. The guy that called this place sketchy must either work for a competitor or not like bars which don't have multiple big screen TV's. Paw Paw is focused on making good beer and good food, which is obvious to anyone who stops by for either. I highly recommend paying them a visit if you are anywhere near Paw Paw, Michigan.

Refreshingly light and perfect for this 80 degree night. Nice two finger head with perfect melon flavor

Vibe - Kind of a metal shack building, with outdoors-y kind of decor inside. Cozy. Mug club mugs hanging all over. Very friendly.

Quality - I tried 7 different beers, and I thought they were all pretty solid. I liked some better than others (and thought some were objectively better), but every one I tried was true to style, had no off flavors, and were poured at a good temperature and were fresh.

Service - The bartenders/ servers were great. Very friendly, very into beer. Made good suggestions, and even pointed me in the direction of a couple other (also pretty good) breweries to check out on my trip.

Selection - Plenty of beers on tap (I think maybe 20?) Pretty sure they were all Paw Paw beers, I don't remember seeing any guest beers. Plenty of different styles as well, so something available for everyone.

Overall/ opinion - I'm really glad I randomly decided to stop at this place, and I will definitely stop again if I am in the area. I walked in by myself as a stranger, and was whole-heartedly welcomed by the patrons and staff alike. And their beer was pretty impressive (in quality and selection). I think I live near here this would be my favorite spot to hang out.

Terrible place to drink a beer. Sketchy at best

V- Very small place, tin roof shack, alright for a few drinks but not really conducive to eating.

Q- Food is just stuff made on a panini press but once a week the do burgers on a grill outside. Drinks are very good, the seem to release a new pub only beer each week and they have meads that are pub only.

S- Only had one guy doing things when I was there on a weekday afternoon. Wasn't too big a deal as there were only a few people there. Guy was very nice and talkative about beer and upcoming releases.

S- Good, a few dark beers, 3-4 hoppy things, occasionally they have a sour which are usually pretty good, a few different meads on tap as well.

Overall I'd say the drinks are worth the trip but maybe come here for a few drinks then go to Bell's or Latitude 42 for food and obviously more beer.

Nice small establishment with a well selection of on taps. Friday is a 6 sample flight for six bucks. The waitress was both very friendly and knowledgeable. Many what appeared to be local patrons, which to me is always a good sign. I would suggest this small brewery/eatery if you are in the Paw Paw area.
