Small town brewery

The beer is OK, the pizza is OK, the staff are rather aloof. Not worth going out of your way, but certainly worth stopping in. I understand the business was just sold and will soon be changing names. The beer list has already made the switch. The brewpub experience is so much about personality of... read more

Like a previous reviewer said, I'm glad we didn't read some of the "sour" reviews before we visited this place. We went with another couple and each ordered flights. The Coconut Telegraph was my favorite, while my husband enjoyed the King Tut. All of the beers we tried were easily on par with other SW Michigan breweries we've visited, and... More

I went here with my husband about a month ago for dinner. We sat inside, the bartender waited on us. Yes, he was slow, and yes, he seemed annoyed by having to wait on us. I had the pork sandwich, husband had the pizza. Both excellent! I told my husband that sandwich would be my future pregnancy craving! My husband... More

I was excited when I found out about Patchwork Brewery in Oct 2012, but now I couldn't care less. Why? The last 3 times we were there, service was horrible--even when we get there early and there's only a few patrons. On all of those occasions, we had to ask for menus and Todd (manager) seems like he's aggravated serving... More

I was a little scared to try this place based on the other reviews. SInce we were driving by anyway, we stopped and I'm glad we did, because we had a great experience. We tried 4 beers: Ira's Revenge, Old Swamp, Al Mary, and Mojito (there were three others on tap, but we just shared a pint of each of... More

We had a flight of all of their beers. Every single one was infected (terribly sour with a horrible aftertaste). It is incomprehensible that the brewer did not know that what she was selling was bad. She either does not clean her tap lines, or she has a major sanitation issue in her process. We did not try the food... More

Title says it all, all beers are sour and leave bad aftertaste. We have retried patchwork several times, trying to give it a chance but the beer is always the same. First time we thought maybe it was dirty lines but after 4-5 visits over the course of year we have officially given up on patchwork brewing. Food is actually... More

We wanted to like this place. The pizza is great, but the beer is terrible. Tried a flight of 5 beers. They were undrinkable.

If you homebrew, you will not learn much from this place. The atmosphere was good but the beer was amateur at best. Service was adequate at best.

I just had some amazing beer and pizza! The beer of my choice is really called amazing and if I named the pizza, it would also be amazing. The guys working made our food and drink choices a breeze. So glad we stopped in. We will be back!! Great pizza!!!!!!
