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

I came here while in Grand Haven for a weekend. I had a flight of their beer ($10) as well as a couple of pints ($4 to $6). My favorite was their Bloody Orange IPA. Good beer, decent prices, nice staff. I would come back again.

I am a beer snob and travel Michigan yearly trying different breweries and their offerings. Odd Sides is one of my favorite MI brewers and I made a point to start a recent beer trip in Grand Haven. Odd Sides has great beers. The building is typical for a brewery: brick walls, swag and a big bar with multiple taps.... More

We recently brought two groups of visitors, new to Grand Haven. This is an excellent location for experiencing history (the Piano Factory building), walking to shops or out toward the boardwalk. Folks at Odd Sides are helpful in answering questions about brews and giving samples. Would be great to have more info available about food options for carry-in...

We spend a couple hours relaxing and talking to some local folks at this creative brewery. There was a huge available variety of interesting brews and the set up was spacious and friendly. To get beer you had to stand in a single line, which was both obnoxious and organized and went fairly quickly. I would say the only down... More
