57 Brew Pub and Bistro – Greenville
A trip to Greenville in October to hike part of the Fred Meijer Flat River Trail also brought us to another great Michigan brewery. 57 Brew Pub and Bistro opened in 2012, and we found it to be a great place for some good beers and good food. We stopped in mid-afternoon and found the place moderately busy, so we sat down and ordered up two flights of beers.
In our first flight we sampled the Raspberry Blonde, Dirty Blonde, Summer Belgian Wit and the Yellow Jacket Stinger Honey Ale. All four were very easy to drink and would be great choices for summer sipping. The Raspberry Blonde was the standout among this bunch.
A second flight brought us the Mayan Midnight Stout, 57 Chevy IPA, Red Sherman’s Imperial and the Flat River Brown. These four were a bit stronger than those in our first flight but were all pretty good as well. I really enjoyed the 57 Chevy IPA and the Mayan Midnight Stout was another favorite.
For food we went with a few appetizers, and really enjoyed the fried green beans. We also had a basket of fries. Our server was Lance and he was very attentive and quick, and very knowledgable when it came to the beer menu. This is definitely a place we will return to when we make a hiking trip this summer, as their full food menu has good reviews and we’re always open to trying more beer! If you need to hike off some beer/food afterwards, the Tower Park staging area for the Flat River Trail isn’t very far away – you’ll find it by heading east on Washington, then south on Baldwin St. past its intersection with South St.
