Craft beer? Craft liquor? Great food? Jolly Pumpkin has all of the above. I try to stop in every time I'm in the area, which is usually once or twice a year, and it never disappoints. The food is fantastic, and I've never had anything but great service. Jolly Pumpkin's craft beers are farmhouse style, which are considered an acquired tasted by some, but they're very good. They also serve beer form North Peak. If you're a fan of Michigan Craft beer, or craft beer in general, definitely make the stop and have some lunch or dinner and some beer.

Did a tasting first: one beer and 4 of their craft distillery products: fun, informative and purchased 2 bottles of their Pumpkin Beer and a bottle of bourbon and a bottle of spiced Rum- very tasty.
Then entered the dining room for lunch. Friendly waitress, offered several tastes of beers before we ordered a glass. Excellent smoked whitefish dip appetizer, Cheesy bacon sandwich and Reuben sandwich with fries were both to our liking - Great Pup food. Beer was outstanding!
Drive up the peninsula and walking around & in the old Bowers Harbor Inn building with its awesome view of West Grand Traverse Bay on a cold wet Fall day all made this a trip and meal well worth the drive.

YUM! White fish pate, burger. Great beer. Took a tour of the brewery. Not too exciting. Same old brewery tour. Go here if you love breweries and good food

A quiet afternoon lunch of an awesome pizza and sandwiches topped with wonderful beers. Our drive up to the Mission lighthouse, a winery stop and a not to be missed stop at the Mission General store worked up our appetite. We nearly missed the sign and sure glad we didn't as the Jolly Pumpkin did not disappoint. The rough hewn interior filled with natural light from a wall of windows was a delight. The service, food and beers were great, a must stop. There is a more formal restaurant attached that we didn't try but will one day.

a nice drive up the Penninsula to this restaurant/brewery on a hill. It was an hour and fifteen min. wait they told us at the door but we managed to get a seat at the bar and enjoyed ourselves while waiting for less than the time they told as (standard process) We shared the pulled pork nachos which were awesome and then had pizza's which were okay. They had a flight of beer but since this was our first restaurant we didn't realize. I'm not a beer drinker but I'm trying to like it so the tasting would've been a good idea. Prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was warm and made for fun.
