Beer = Good
Food = Pretty bad
Service/Atmosphere = Real bad

As a native Michigander I was excited to try this place on a recent visit. It's in the middle of no where. You walk in and there are some cool things - the coolest is a room set up museum style with old fashioned bottle openers.

There is a bar area that is nice, but unfortunately that was full so we were out under florescent lights in this hallway type of area with uncomfortable seats.

Our server always seemed in a rush, and was unfriendly. She did not express interest in the beer. We tried the Raspberry Celis and IPA. The IPA was decent, the raspberry was interesting.

We ordered pizza (greasy and soggy), sweet potato fries (pieces of almost-raw potato briefly dropped in oil), burgers that were previously frozen, etc.

Prices were reasonable. 3 beers and dinner for 4 was about $45. (beer about $4 a pint, $12 for a pizza, etc)

If I were to go again, I'd probably just pick up a growler to go. It was a disappointment.

Food C-
Service... well whats lower than an overall total failure?

I dont usually ask too much. I like to have a feel like I got an enjoyable meal, a good beer and acceptable service. I felt like I only got one of those on this visit.

Service was miserable. We arrived hungry, wanting a good beer and in a pleasant mood. The dining room wasnt busy, and we seated oruselves after asking what was protocol.

Once we saw our waitress, we were basically accused of being idiots not knowing what we wanted when she first came by, as she pointed at the beer list about 20 ft away printed on an 8.5x11 sheet and walked away. When she returned after leaving us with menus I selected my beer and said I was ready to order my food, and she left as soon as the last person said their beer order.

10 minutes later she dropped our beers off and as we started to order our food she walked away again.

20 minutes later when she returned to get our food orders I ordered a corned beef Reuben for $8. I received a small rueben that wasnt even as good as I would have expected from Arbys. My fellow patrons ordered burgers (after waiting 15 minutes to hear they were out of the original items) and received what was described to me as "A $3 Sams club frozen burger". Once our meal was finished I approached the bar to order a growler as the beer I got (Porter) was quite good. Our waitress (who we hadnt seen even though we finished our meal a good 20 minutes before the point) was behind the bar and filled my growler quickly and said she would add it to my bill. I stated we would like our bill as we would like to get going (having been here for over 1.5 hours at this point) and it was STILL another 15 minutes before we received our bill.

I will NOT be returning, to Michigan Brewing Company in the forseeable future as I can find excellent beer elsewhere in this state, and they offered nothing else worth entering for.
