The Livery was actually a livery stable 100 years ago. Nicely restored to preserve the character of the original space. I had the Yardbird sandwich, and it was very good. Great selection of beers with 18 handles including 2 nitro taps and 2 beer engines. There are 3 levels to the place and a stage for live music. Worth a... More

Visited on a Saturday afternoon. Beer isn't great. Typical formulaic rehabbed old building with exposed brick and pipes. Order at the bar and wait a while for food which was okay but not worth a trip for. Might have been a slow time but it didn't show any signs of hopping any time soon.

Benton harbor was not what we expected. We thought it would have a main street with cute stores but it looked like an old industrial town with all the brick building that were spaced apart and many in need of repair. For a late lunch we went to the Livery on a recommendation and I am sooo glad we made... More

Really good beer, plenty of choices for a smaller brewery. A little bit heavy leaning toward the IPAs as beer choices. Pizza was very good, Simonista is recommended. The night I was there they had a live folk alternative band, which was very good. I gather they have a wide rang of music styles depending on the weekend, so you... More

We stopped into The Livery on our "Brew About" journey to visit 7 brewpubs in SW Michigan. We liked the beer at the Livery the least of the 7 places we stopped. The space was cool and the food was good, but they don't seem to have their beer recipes down.

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
