“Great beer, cool startup”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

I love to see a couple guys start a brewery from the ground up. It's a small space but they make it a great place to chill and share some brews. Staff is great. Keep up the good work guys!

“Quirky with some unusual brews!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Small, intimate space, friendly staff. Some unique beers, my wife had Tree Blood. This is brewed using no water. The liquid content is provided by tree sap & maple syrup!

“A quirky place that is much too small”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Beards has such potential to be great. It is in cool building and the beer is great. I had the Cherry Saison and would highly recommend it. However, the brewery is very, very small and was very busy when I was there. Had to wait in line for drinks and the line at the bar was unorganized and crowded.

“Great place!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

What a great place to just kick back, have a beer and conversation. I'm not a beer drinker but was able to test each one to see which I would like. This place would have been awesome with some live entertainment.

“Great beer, chill atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

I visited with my husband and brother on road trip to the U.P. We liked the beer and and the beard's motif, and bought a growler of the Dynamo to take with us. Highly recommend this place! I'll definitely go back when I'm in town.
No "real" food, but we were told we could bring our own in if we wanted.
