This place is pretty great already. But once they finish the other half of their renovations, they will get that 5th... star. Had to leave a little room. Service, per usual for the U.P., is excellent.read more

Hey everyone, don't get me wrong if you are looking for a great hangout, laid back, and hidden from the downtown world... this is the spot. I've only been here twice, this time with my roommate, and it just so happens we got the same beer, but then we had to double check. We each tasted one another's beer and then, tried our own again. They were in fact the same beer, but mine was severely less carbonated, had less flavor and kick, and nowhere near as dry. I was very sad. I'm hoping they see this and take note to there customers concern, as well as, figure out what could be wrong with a batch of their beer.read more

Had a delicious amber, and the space is lovely! The bartender was very kind, there was excellent music (and my favorite... Detroit band), and there are plenty of places to ait, talk, or play games (which they have there). I will certainly be back!read more

A great find. My friend and I travel to craft breweries and we feel this was a true Gem and unique. Unique in that the... blends and flavors of their brews are unexpected and very pleasant. There is likely a beer on tap to please anyone in your group.We were greeted by Joe, and the first question he asked us is "what don't you like?"And then proceeded to make suggestions for us. The beer was excellent as was Joe's playlist for music. The decor was also a combination of rustic and modern... What I would call Urban Chic. Definitely one of our favorite breweries and we will make the trip to Michigan's U.P. again. Highly recommend, staff is quite knowledgeable about the beer and local recommendations for lodging and restaurants.read more

We were a party of four adults, two 3-year-olds, an almost 2-year-old. They were very welcoming to young ones with an... enclosed play area and complimentary juice boxes and pretzels! We enjoyed the brews and bought a 12-pack to take home. Many craft brews are so heavy but BnB’s are lighter and flavorful. Don’t miss this place!read more

Barrel + Beam hosted my baby shower this past weekend and EVERYTHING was beyond my expectations! Marina and Chuck were... AMAZING! They helped with set up, tear down, moving furniture, everything! The atmosphere and decor is absolutely stunning and feels so inviting for any sized event. We ended up not using a majority of our decorations we brought for the baby shower just because we did not want (or need) to add anything - the place is stunning! All my guests raved about the beer, too! Marina is incredible to work with and she is very helpful and communicative during the planning process. Highly recommend checking them out for your next event. Thanks, Barrel + Beam!read more
