  • Stopped in for lunch. Tried 5 different beers, all of them good. They even had an asparagus beer! Food was awesome too. Try the queso beer cheese with soft chips. My turkey and guac sandwich was serve...  more »
  • Was our last stop on our Ale Trail thru TC and the Blue Magic Lavender Beer was to die for, even took home a growler, which wasn't as good as from the tap, wondering if because it was in a clear growl...  more »
  • Stopped with friends to taste some beers. Sample flights are huge! Probably the best beer was the chipotle stout. Huge warehouse is set up nicely for games and fun.  more »

  • Some unique beers here. Some good (Naughty Girl Stout), some...too weird (Thai Peanut). Food and service left something to be desired. My demon burger was great but the dirty fries (cheese fries) were just kinda soft and soppy. Worse, my parents and sister's burgers were ordered medium well but large portions of them were nearly bloodied and inedible. When the issue was brought to the girl clearing our table, she shrugged at us awkwardly and said that she wasn't the best person to talk to but then she walked away from the table and never got anybody capable of addressing the problem. We were in a rush so we couldn't pursue the issue further. The building is neat. There's outdoor seating that you could probably take a pet to eat with you. Hopefully your experience is better than mine. It's worth going to in order to try the beers.
  • I have been to many breweries and I would say the experience at Right Brain was not among the best. The staff were unwelcoming, we sat at the bar for 10 min before anyone asked us for beer. We ordered a sampler of 6 which was for $15! I hardly remember any brewery charging $15 for a sampler. Lastly the beer, they might boast of having won many medals, but I found them unimpressive. In their defense, they were out of their too popular beers. However, I wouldn't go there next time I visit Traverse City.
  • Very verity of beers, good mix with the beers, and good food. Lydia was the bar tender and she was great... kept the beers full and was enjoying what she did...
  • EXTREMELY friendly. Stopped in to check the place out as a fan of the beer and the brewery did not disappoint. Our bartender Jessica made us feel as if we had been long time customers during our first ever visit. Russ the owner popped up very casually. Initially thought he was just a random patron and after a bit of just friendly conversation we discovered he was the owner. Russ Brought out some beer that wasn't even on the market just to get some feedback. Bottom line is if you like right brains beer and enjoy a great service this is the place for you.
  • Love the atmosphere. And the beer is truly one of a kind. We did a flight so we could try a little of everything. It is a great value.
