I personally wouldn't review this place highly because I don't drink beer, however, the atmosphere is fun and laid back. Local hangout for tech students. Beer is reasonably priced and several brews to choose from. It is a high quality. They offer five samples for just under $5 service was outstanding!!! It appeared they offered a pop they brew however... More

This was our 11th brewery stop on our vacation to the U.P. The beer was decent and the prices were the lowest we've seen at breweries and brewpubs. We enjoyed our flight and the atmosphere - it is rather large and even has a nice patio in the back overlooking the river. Stop here if you're looking for an inexpensive... More

Nice place to meet up for drinks. We were there on a Friday and it was very busy with the college crowd. Nice atmosphere. Good selection of beer.

Fantastic place to hang out tasting beers! Walked over from Ramada Hancock on the Lift Bridge to Brewery in Houghton. Stayed a few hours. Great atmosphere, enjoyed people, bartender wonderful and the brews with bag of peanuts topped the rainy day. A must stop. You can have food delivered there too.

Stopped here for a beer while waiting for a parade in Houghton's downtown district outside their large storefront windows. It was perfect for a place to watch life in downtown Houghton while enjoying their stout that only cost $2.75 a pint. The bar is cozy with a mixture former mining town turned college town ambience.

Great beer, great people, great environment. Comfortable and adorable. One of my favorite places in the area. They don't serve food but bring your own, they won't mind :)

Very unique building with indoor and outdoor setting....from bar style and counters to some couches and casual. Awesome selection of beers to suit anyone's taste. No food, but allow outside food, and pizza company 2 doors down delivers....and is excellent

Stopped here several times with friends while visiting. Amazed that there pints were only $2.75! Growler fill $8.50. Red jacket is my favorite, but their Scottish and widow maker is also very good. Two bars and a large back patio area for seating. Place is always packed but stand by the bar and seats open up quickly. Bring in food... More

Love KBC. $2.50 for a brew, a lovely evening on the patio, and sometimes live music. Doesn't get much better after a ride on the trails!
