Brewery
“Hands down our favorite brewery in the city. Their beer is far and away the best stylistically. The IPAs are stellar and their second building - Webb’s City Cellar offers interesting options like meads and ciders. We loved their sparkling mead with Traverse City cherries when that was offered. They have a nice outdoor seating area but careful, their Adirondack chairs are spectacularly uncomfortable! ”
