Stopped in on a Sunday night for a pint, a howler, some cans of Peanuts and Crackerjack, and some takeout. Sunday night, place was half full. Smaller than expected building. About a dozen tables and a bar that seats seven or eight. Very much a neighborhood bar feel. Lots of Tigers memorabilia on the walls: pennants, signed jerseys, posters, all of which I appreciated. Around 15 brews on tap. Sat at the bar and had a pale ale while I waited for my order.
Service was quick, and the bartender was personable and friendly, chatting up the couple on one side of me and deftly handling the asshole sitting on my other side. Food was good, but after hearing everyone at the place go on about the pizza I wish I had ordered that instead. Lots of brew styles available.

Really enjoyed my time at this place. The beers were well made and tasty and the food was pretty delicious too. You can do flights of pizza, which is awesome! Nothing like getting to try a bunch of pizzas when you can't decide on one. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

Casual dining and quality beer spot in a historic and converted fire house.....beer was on point as far as the brown ale I enjoyed was concerned and the pizza was thin crust and delicious...well worth a visit...one of dozens of fun/quality/casual breweries in this beer saturated town

This place has a decent beer selection, but the vibe and pizza is what it's really all about. I absolutely loved the pizza i got a sampler of beer and me and my fiancee got a sampler of pizza(yes they do that and I recommend doing so). It just strengthened my love for Grand Rapids. I've only been to this city one time and after that visit I am absolutely certain I want to move here. If you haven't been to this city go, and then visit The Mitten and the Hop Cat and every other craft brewery they have to offer. While you're at catch a live Free Beer and Hot Wings show(I didn't do it while I was there but I am a huge fan from a different state and have met them and they are f'ing hilarious). Seriously I want to move to this town and it's places like The Mitten that make me want to move the 6 hours from friends and family go here and everywhere in Grand Rapids. P.S. sorry for the rambling I've had a few tonight.

Had lunch on a Tuesday the week after Christmas. Was slow when I got there but packed when I left. 20 handles, solid variety. Pizza was amazing, highly recommended

I loved the tap room with the old school baseball theme. I really enjoyed my the pizza and the service and selection of the beer were also excellent. However, I was not overly impressed with the beer with nothing being really memorable about the beer other than it being rather forgettable.
