“You would never know!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

This brewery is right next to the public library in the old train depo.
If you order pizza you can watch them make it if you are sitting outside, personally I come here more in the summer, do to not a lot of space inside. " I have Closter phobia but it's not bad truthfully"
Get there Rye Ale one of the best in town!

“A nice microbrewery”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

This microbrewery is approximately two years old, occupying the old Traverse City railroad depot, near the Traverse Area District Library. The microbrewery is well run and efficient. There are several choices of tasty draft beers and ales. Pizza is quite good (we chose Cock O' The Walk), as is the Station Salad, a large serving for only $6.

Reviewed April 2, 2014

The Filling Station is a little off the beaten path, but well worth it! Love all the different flatbread pizzas and salads!

“Best of a brewery tour”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

This was our first stop on a brewery tour. The waitstaff was very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable. The manager (owner's brother-in-law) spent time with us explaining the history of the brewery and he wasn't even aware we were part of the tour. Good variety in brews, and the pizza was delicious!

“Farmer Steve”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

The entire crew was friendly, well trained, and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying their jobs. Same for Todd the Owner. Pizza was delicious as was the beer. Great old depot environment. Would highly recommend this truly local food and beer spot.
