The name of this little brew pub could easily be the Good brewery. It is a perfect fit for the quaint downtown of Mason. Since opening their doors awhile back, they have expanded to the building next door making it much easier to get a seat. They've had their growing pains, but have greatly expanded and improved their beer selection... More

BAD makes some great craft beer and cider. They have just about anything your palette could ask for as far as craft beer goes. Their specialties are their IPAs. BAD is a fantastic neighborhood pub with a fantastic ambiance. The Good Bites food truck is parked behind and services fantastic food. It's is REALLY good. Tuesday is burger night with... More

Enjoyed the selection of the beers they brew, and according to a friend who has been there many times the brews keep getting better and better. Feel comfortable in the surroundings, and enjoyed the conversation with the bartender who obviously took pride in what they did. Worth stopping in if you're in the area.

Great brewery in Mason with a fun atmosphere. Very laid back and extremely friendly. The atmosphere is wonderful with an outside area as well. Historic Mason is a great setting for this unique place and it is very comfortable and welcoming. When you are there it feels like family. This really is a must stop and I would highly recommend...

My husband and I went on a evening drive and stopped in for a beer. We ended up having two beers and dinner. Very friendly staff. Nice historic building. Probably wouldn't eat here again just because the burgers are too messy, but the food was good.

Love the addition in Mason with this brew house. I wish we had something like this years ago-but nonetheless happy to know that it's here. The menu is awesome, the atmosphere is even better. Head out back and bring a board game and hang out there way after the last call has been made. Bring your own food if you... More

We were in town for a graduation party and a large group of us decided to check out Bad Brewing Company. A very pleasant experience! The staff are very friendly and know their stuff! The beer and cider were very tasty! Prices are reasonable. We did not order any food, but what we saw looked good.

Sometimes my wife and I take the "long way home" when heading back to Metro Detroit from an event in East Lansing (Go Green!!!). We decided to make a few stops along the way while cruising back on M-36. This small craft brew pub is quaint and friendly with a fine selection of beers. If you're taking "the long way... More

I always enjoy going to the local breweries. This place has a small social atmosphere with about a dozen beers and a cider on tap. It is a great place to go with friends and shoot the breeze or play a friendly game of darts.
