Stopped in recently on a beer run to Zinke's, which never disappoints. Never thought to stop in here, as it looks like any other divey Dells bar from the outside, macro neons, screen door,etc. the building is wedge shaped, once inside you walk into a tiled room with tables and a dartboard or two. Past that is the bar in another room, with windows looking onto Zinke's parking lot. A few lackluster taps were at one end of the bar, Stella, cider, and Spotted Cow, but the saving grace was at the other end, Lake Louie Kiss the Lips IPA. We were handed the bottle list after that, which listed an impressive 80 beers. They were listed randomly, but there were some seasonal gems like Ale Asylum Bedlam, Port Huron Altbier, and others.

Atmosphere was a typical townie bar, there was Kilbourn Fire Dept. memorabilia set into the bar, which was unique. The bartenders were quick and friendly, and able to list off a few of the newer beers they got in.

Overall not a bad place, definitely worth a stop if headed to Zinke's, or Port Huron.
Bar scene in town is still lacking, byob camping ftw...

Not quite the tourist trap I expected. It's kind of a dive but clean and comfortable. They have a wide selection of craft beer in bottles and a few on tap. Service was good for the Dells. I did not try the food.

Did a pub crawl with the wife while waiting out a rainy day in the dells recently and found this place.

Typical corner beer bar atmosphere. Plenty of pub tables and bar seating. Bar games galore. Full on BMC decor. To say I wasn't getting my hopes up would be an understatement. Then as I sat down I looked behind the bar and like a beacon of hope the beer list was loaded with Midwest craft options. NG, Lake Louie, CW, Tyranena, Potosi and FFF. Not bad for a tourist trap off the downtown strip.

The server was very friendly and kept my glass full.

Overall a nice spot for some non BMC options when bumming around down town.
