“Great food and brew.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013 via mobile

Have gone to this place many times and really enjoy the atmosphere with such knowledgable bar Meisters such as Mikey G. The food is always tasty and can't beat the beer steamed shrimp. O, and don't forget the great tasting beers!

“Great beer, great music, great atmoshpere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

Well worth the 70 minute drive to enjoy the vintage architecture and quality craft beers. World famous music acts play at this venue and provide wonderful evening entertainment. A small creative menu is offered that goes well with the many beer offerings that are brewed on the premise.

“best beer in SW MI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

I'm a local, so maybe I'm biased, but The Livery is my favorite. The beer is always top notch, and the bartenders are always ready to help out with your next selection. The food is good, and complements the beer nicely. I go to The Livery at least once a month!

“Beers not created by a corporation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013

Located in the basement of a restored old livery building in downtown Benton Harbor, The Livery is a welcoming beer pub run by people who truly like what they are doing. While I am partial to only two of the large rotating selection of beers, you can't go wrong with a visit. They schedule events on occasion for a larger venue room upstairs and are a part of the effort to bring back Benton harbor. Definitely worth the support.
