Stopped in at 3 pm on a Friday as I was driving across the state on a business trip. It was much more busy than I expected. The space is amazing with a big u shaped bar an lots of tables. 21 of their beers on tap, with lots of variety. My pint of wet hopped Citra harvest was $4 on HH pricing, which is very fair. I would have loved to put in a long session, but still had a long drive ahead. I will be sure to come by again when I'm in the area.

Typically a good selection of a wide variety of beers, including cask conditioned on occasion. The food is top-notch; the prime rib sandwich is not to be missed. Service has always been friendly and prompt.

Lively place with a ton of great beer. Very cool as you can see into where the beer is brewed.

Latitude 42 has been open for a year or so now competing in the crowded southwest Michigan beer scene. They make a wide variety of beers that tend to range all over the place. They typically have more than 20 different beers on tap, so if you like variety this is the place. Some of their beers I find to be pretty average, but they also make some excellent brews as well (the Black IPA comes to mind). The food is very good, in fact for microbreweries in the Kalamazoo area, as an eatery I would say this place ranks right up near the top. It is a very family friendly place and it is not unusual to see a lot of kids. Overall I like the place.

Awesome food to go along with awesome beer. Biggest problem is the wait. Get here before 5:30 and after 7:30 if you don't want a long wait. Was there for the 2nd time tonight. Got there at about 6:15 and had a 50 minute wait. Not enough televisions for the amount of seating in my opinion.

Second stop on our tour was Latitude 42, a newer brewery in Portage, MI. This is in a large building with a huge bar and several seating areas. I can tell this place was built with the intention of having room to grow and is able to fit large crowds of thirsty beer drinkers. We were lucky enough to get a tour by brewer Scott Freitas, previously of Maui Brewing. A bearded and friendly chap, he was kind enough to share brewing with coconut secrets with me! A bit of Hawaii entered into the brewhouse with some tribal designs on the stainless and a stuffed bust of a hammerhead shark on the wall. We had just enough time to order a beer sampler, but even by splitting a sampler each, my wife and I were not able to try all the beers they had to offer! All of the beers were solid and nearly everything was dry and easy to drink, even the 9.7% Double Chin. My favorite of their beers was the Island Fever coconut stout--light, smooth, with subtle coconut flavors. The Mango Mama was not mango-y at all and not nearly as good as Town Hall's mango IPA of the same name. We didn't have a lot of time here, but I enjoyed what time we had.
