I've heard of Right Brain before, but decided it was worth a stop when we made our way up to Traverse City for the weekend. Bought a few of their beers before heading up north and discovered their CEO Stout, which may be my go-to...More

One of the best brew scenes in Traverse City. The atmosphere is laid back and hip, and brew wise they are sure to have something to satisfy your taste buds. Variety of IPA's are excellent.

Good beer selection. Offer Michigan ciders and wine. Food truck offers simple but tasty options. Lots of cool pieces of artwork. Fun bar games, arcade bowling, pinball, classic arcade games. We stop in every time we visit TC.

I liked the atmosphere, warehouse-type feel. There was bags set up inside which was fun! We tried a flight and the beer just didn’t appeal to me. My husband liked his though. We would come back and try again.
