Great beer and good prices. Bartenders are awesome and knowledgeable. I like being there during the day. It's quiet in the downstairs part. I was drinking tap beeer and wanted a a cap and the bartender went in back and brought me out a few new bottle caps

Overall everything is good...nothing stands out other than how nice the brewery looks. Super modern/hippy feel

Rather typical taproom atmosphere with a bar and several tables looking upon the brewery space behind glass. Service was prompt and friendly and eager to answer questions. Nice selection of varying styles available while adding their own unique twist. An unusual tea infused pale ale that tasted like pure bergamot and a really nice brown ale. Around 10 choices during my visit. The upstairs space is where the action takes place. A separate bar and restrooms and much more open and room to roam. I guess they have bands play in here and that would be cool. Probably hopping on a good weekend. Really liked the growler glass and was tempted to buy but balked at the $20 tag.

If you like bitter. This is the place for you. Every beer is bitter, bitter, bitter. They all kind of run together with the same bitter aftertaste.

Highly recommend this place if you are in the area. I drove to the u.p. for a hunting trip and then spent another hour in the car in a snow storm to get there. It is a cool place, great beer, exceptional upstairs space for a large gathering, group events or just a wildly large tasting party. had fun there with a local beer bud and even sat in on a local home brew club. wow, fun times.
bought a few beers a shirt for me and the wifey and all good.

My wife and I stopped here as part of a pub crawl in northern Michigan and the UP to visit the newer brewpubs (plus several others) that have opened since our last trip ‘up north’. This is one of the new ones that just recently opened.

The place has a storefront setting between two other businesses along a street that is just off the main downtown area. A large garage door dominates the front exterior wall of the pub, and I assume that they open it during the warm season. The interior consists of a bar and 8-10 tables. There is no food, although they are food-friendly. We sat at the bar and ordered a sampler flight of 5 of the 9 beers that were available. ($6 for five 4-oz pours.) For being a new brewery that have dialed-in the beers fairly well, and exceeded my expectations for a couple of them. The Angry Bear (a Flanders-style Brown) was very good, and we also felt that the IPA was above average. The other three were good, but more to just being on-style without being anything special.

We enjoyed this visit, although just briefly to have a sampler and then to move along to the next place. Hopefully we can spend more time here on the next time in town.
