Visited 3 weeks after opening. It became apparent upon walking in, that they took notes from their former Founders brewing past and copied many of Founders qualities...seemed like a copy cat.

Tried a flight of the beers and 2 pints...average to below average. Their imperial stout was much below any expectations of an imperial stout such as Founders Imp Stout, Dark Horse, or Expedition Stout.

The place was packed, but I would estimate 90% of the people that were there the night I was there, would be just as happy with a Blue Moon as they would a high quality craft beer.

With so many solid offerings in the area with a much better atmosphere, menu, and locale, once is enough for me...unless, they really ramp it up. I overheard someone while I was there say, "I love this Strong Ale, it really tastes like Two-Hearted Ale". If that doesn't speak volumes to the low quality of the beers, I don't know what does.

This place is pretty great. The staff is pretty normally quick and good. Food is very good as well. Easy parking and normally very quick to get seated.

Great spot just north of Grand Rapids

Very pleasant, casual and fun room with large outside eating area as a bonus

Love their beers, food was tasty..had the brisket sandwedge and some wings and they were on point

Nice spot for beers with the guys, a bite with friends or a date with the missus. Another high quality GR area brewery....great place to enjoy fine brew and tasty food

Excellent selection of beers. No Rules may be their top beer, but they have many others that are just as good. Crowler and growler fills available. Food is very good as well. Just 15 minutes north of Grand Rapids, MI.

This brewery was the highlight of our recent trip to Grand Rapids.....huge open space, huge bar, and lots of seating in an industrial space. Food was great....service was excellent. Nice selection of to-go beers coupled with a great taplist......featured OB and cigar city beers along with many perrin options.

Showed up not knowing what to expect and was really pleasantly surprised. The place has a great layout with a wide open bar, open dining area, private party area, and the shuffleboard table was a nice addition. We were seated immediately and our server took really good care of us. The selection was great. Most of their lineup was on tap and they also had bottles available of beer that wasn't on tap. I enjoyed the russian imperial stout, Lil Griz, Dark New Day, Blazin' Hotbox, and Black Goat. After eyeballing the neighbor's food, I ordered a burger and was happy I did; it was delicious. I was impressed with the layout of the taproom/brewery, the selection of beer, and the service. If your're nearby, I suggest stopping in.
