If thier available pick up some beers from these guys. I've had the chocolate stout and the lager and its lookin like everything they put out is some top-notch full flavored beer.
i love stouts, and i love chocolate stouts.
if you love stouts and chocolate stouts, you WILL NOT love this one.
it's bitey, has almost no "stout" like flavors, and no "chocolate" flavors.
it's an "alright" beer, certainly a bazillion times better than a silver bullet or bud lite or whatever...
This place has quite possibly the best beer ive had in a long time. Doesnt serve food, but you can take your own so its not too bad. They have different beers for different tastes and do a sampler type thing for 15 bucks. Its worth it. So if you are ever in traverse city, let me know, ill...

This is freakin' good beer, I had the IPA last week and I'm drinking the arrogant bastard ale as we speak. It's pairing well with this Vegas Cubana Torpedo.
They just opened a wine and beer store by my house that sells almost nothing but microbrews. I'm really liking the Dogfish Head 60 and 90...

A full-bodied Lager beer, using 2-row barley malt and Hallertau hops.
My review of this brew is that it's pretty good.It doesn't have any heavy flavor profiles. It is kind of light in character. It has good carbination and...

Brownings Brewery: located in the Bats stadium building on Market.
I had never been in this brewery/restaurant before and I should be a shamed of myself. It has the feel of an old pub but the place is clean with nice wood work.
Some buddies and I went the Bats (minor league baseball) game...
