The hubby and I stopped here Friday evening. It was a nice atmosphere. We enjoyed the wood burning firepit. It smelled wonderful. The beer was good. There was a nice crowd there including work groups, families with small children, and couples.

Bill's Beer Garden is a good place to grab some unique beers. They offer a good selection of craft beers and ample seating outside. They didn't have table service when I visited, but the bar tenders were friendly and quick with pouring beers.

The beer garden has some solid beer but by and far the reason it's so cool is it's atmosphere. It is unreal

Great place to meet up with friends and/or co-workers. Nice selection of local beers and very relaxed atmosphere. For food, one can pick up things to eat at Mark's Carts and bring them back to enjoy in the Beer Garden.

They have some good Michigan beers but what is best about this place is that you can drink in an outdoor environment. On rainy days they have these shelters that kind of covers from rain. There are fire pits as well.

A simple beer garden with cafeteria style seating. They do have a canopy over parts of the grounds to cover up on sunny/rainy days. A nice selection of craft beers. Sampler is a good start. Also serve a limited selection of wine and sangria. Only...More
