I'm a big fan of Odd Sides microbrews, always seek them out at the Michigan Brewers Guild events. Try a flight, or two, and enjoy a sampling of many of the offerings.

The staff is very friendly. Family friendly atmosphere. You are welcome to bring in outside food or order from many local restaurants and have it delivered right to you at Odd Sides. Bring your own board games, deck of cards, etc or there is a small assortment there as well.

Great sour beer in a beautiful setting, what more can a person ask for. This place is the reason I return to Grand Haven. (Although the service today was a little lacking, it has been stellar in the past.)

Oddside is THE reason we make the drive out to Grand Haven, Michigan from Chicago. Visited in January of 2016 and this past weekend on 12/10. Their unique beers are great. We had a flight for $10 ranging in styles from their passion juice IPA, brewchata blonde, lolly catcher hefeweizen, and some stouts, all were enjoyable to drink. The bartenders... More

There's a cautionary tale that can be told about herd mentality. There’s a certain point, once a lot of people think and say something is great, that one’s skeptical radar reaches its zenith. In the craft-brewing industry, the allure of creating something different is overwhelming—so much so that what often results is beer that is different solely for the sake... More

Bean Flicker is one of my favorite beers and Odd Side was a big reason we visited Grand Haven. I didn't realize they don't serve food, so we were a little thrown on our first visit, but they have a great arcade game selection. Really love the sofa/loveseat/throne chair corner.

Due to city sign ordinances, Odd Sides is hard to find. But, if you are a craft beer fan - you must find it. We especially enjoyed the bourbon barrel Maya Mocha Stout and the Hazel's Nuts. The bar staff was friendly and attentive. There is no food here, but they have menus for local restaurants that deliver there. I... More

I love beer and there are plenty of brew pubs in west Michigan to go to. I've been to Odd Sides a number of times and usually can only find one beer I sort of like. Everything is flavored or some weird concoction They should have a least 3 or 4 just good standard unflavored beers. I'm not the only... More

This is a great beer bar. Their brews are fantastic and there is a large selection of their most recent drafts. We thought it was an actual pub and that they served food - they don't. You can bring food in, and there are lots of places in town to do so. Just don't expect a menu, other than great... More

A wonderful little city with great craft brew. The odd side is in a unique structure with other locally owned businesses. The staff were friendly and willing to advise. Hope to come back next year
