Despite their funky brews, this is the best brewery in TC hands down. On a recent trip I was blown away by the Thai Peanut Ale. I normally hate Brown Ales but this was fantastic. We always hit RBB when we are in Traverse and this trend will continue.

Hubby and I searched out this brewpub and weren't sorry. Relaxed surroundings an a nice sampling of their beers for $15.00. The waffle ham and Gouda sandwich was really good. Just wish it was bigger for $7.00 each. Maybe an expanded menu would bring in more people too. We will return when in the area.

Right Brain is one of the best brewery's I have visited. It has an excellent atmosphere with lots of cool artwork throughout the brewery. The brew is top notch, especially if you like IPA's

We had lunch and did a flight at RBB. The waffle sandwiches were delicious and the flight was tasty. We loved the Schrute farms saison.

My husband and I stopped by the Right Brain Brewery after dinner one night. First of all, it's totally tucked away. We didn't think we were in the right spot until we actually parked, entered the building and walked through the door at the end of the hallway. But I suppose that's part of its charm. Very cool art on... More

We stopped and had beers and lunch. The atmosphere is a lot of fun and you can tell that all the staff really enjoy their jobs. Beers were great and the food was a nice change from the typical brewpub foods. Highly recommended.

Very relaxing, fun place to spend some time. Pass the time playing darts or shuffleboard. Or just enjoy spending some times with friends, enjoying good beer. Will definitely be back!

We had a tasting flight and the beer here is excellent. I couldn't even pick a favorite, because they were all so good. They offer a limited menu with sandwiches and snacks. We ordered chips and guacamole and that was tasty as well. The pub was spacious and was very comfortable on a Saturday afternoon. If you enjoy microbrews, try... More
