Odd Side has a wonderful selection of beers...we prefer Bean Flicker...and you can even order a sandwich in store from the neighboring sandwich shop which will be delivered straight to your table. Always a fun place to hang with friends when we are downtown GH.

Odd Side is a neat place. The beer tenders know the beers and after you share with them your preferences, they provide you with great recommendations. Although they don't serve food, you can bring it in and they also have fun, high quality packaged snacks (buttered, cheese, & Carmel popcorn; potato chips). Tip: For first timers trying to find the... More

Great place to hang out with friends. Overwhelming selection of craft brews. They do let you sample to help you decide. Love that you can bring your own food in. Can get a bit noisy at times.

I'm a local, been coming to this place since it opened, lifetime mug club member since 2015. This is my happy place. Hardly ever visit other bars in town. Casual, kids welcome, happy people and great staff. It's set in an old piano factory, all brick and hard wood. Used to run around in the empty factory when I was... More

I'm a big fan of Odd Sides microbrews, always seek them out at the Michigan Brewers Guild events. Try a flight, or two, and enjoy a sampling of many of the offerings.

The staff is very friendly. Family friendly atmosphere. You are welcome to bring in outside food or order from many local restaurants and have it delivered right to you at Odd Sides. Bring your own board games, deck of cards, etc or there is a small assortment there as well.

Great sour beer in a beautiful setting, what more can a person ask for. This place is the reason I return to Grand Haven. (Although the service today was a little lacking, it has been stellar in the past.)

Oddside is THE reason we make the drive out to Grand Haven, Michigan from Chicago. Visited in January of 2016 and this past weekend on 12/10. Their unique beers are great. We had a flight for $10 ranging in styles from their passion juice IPA, brewchata blonde, lolly catcher hefeweizen, and some stouts, all were enjoyable to drink. The bartenders... More

There's a cautionary tale that can be told about herd mentality. There’s a certain point, once a lot of people think and say something is great, that one’s skeptical radar reaches its zenith. In the craft-brewing industry, the allure of creating something different is overwhelming—so much so that what often results is beer that is different solely for the sake... More
