Amazing beer selection.

One of my husbands favorite stops on our Southwest Michigan brewery tour. Great selection, and amazing barrel aged choices. Don't miss this place just because it's small.

Up the stairs and into a warm comfortable space...with a wide array of craft beers and sodas...the soothing sexy voice of the DJ playing vinyls (that night) lulling you into a peaceful state of times past...Neil Young, Cream and more

The craft beers here are really good. Especially after playing a resounding 2 games of vintage baseball. The staff is quite nice. Prices are fair. Go just to enjoy the ambiance inside or the patio.

I love this place. Cool atmosphere and a great selection of beer. Not much more to it. Just great craft and micro brews, as well as big name beers. It has always been a good place to visit.

After a long day on Silver Beach in St. Joseph, we were thirsty and hungry. Anytime I visit a new place I always check out the local beer scene. This is the only brewery in the area located across the river in Benton Harbor. But, I was pleasantly surprised by the unique selection of beers here. I recommend the Half... More

Beers were mediocre, staff was pretty poor. While we were there you had to order at the bar, while waiting we saw multiple mix ups with tabs and credit cards and when trying to close ours the waitress was snappy and rude.

The Livery is in a neat old building. Beer was yummy! Very laid back. Although not ideal for kids they were welcomed. Food was good!

The beer selection is great and a really cool sub-street level atmosphere. The peel and eat shrimp is a perfect match for the cold beer and having fun with work colleagues after work to wind down from a productive day.

Please take a moment to visit this brewery on your next trip to the St. Joe/Benton Harbor area. The beer is not only exquisitely made but very affordable and served by salt of the Earth people. Heck, they even allowed my girlfriend to tap a Firken keg. Wow.

This place is AWESOME. One of the owners is a die-hard Chicago sports fan (Mikey G), and loves getting to know his customers. Amazing staff, great beers. Highly recommend!
