This has become one of our favorite places to visit when we travel to Traverse City. Atmosphere is amazing. Husband like the beer, and I like the mead.

Gin Joy tapped on Barrel Aged day = deliciousness. We think it vastly improved the taste of cake walk. Please bottle Gin Joy! Also had the nacho plate with chorizo and it was very good. Loved the pico, very garlicky which is my fave

We got a flight of beers for tasting, and we're quite sure that the server mixed up two of them... it was a bit sad. We ordered a grilled cheese sandwich and it was mediocre. Cake walk was a really interesting beer - dessert beer?

Right Brain Brewery is a cool place to visit and they have pretty tasty beers to offer. There are nice paintings on the walls and the paintings are all for sale. They don't serve food.

Great beer, great staff, great art oddities to look at, great snacky food. Really I don't think I could even think of a bad thing to saw. Flights are generous pours of beer, and the now offer a white wine too! Share a waffle sandwich...More
