The beers were great, especially the one with a bit of coffee in it (Magiones or something like that). Oatmeal stout was great also. Actually, I tasted 3 more by sipping my friend's beers and they were all great!! You can bring in pizza form the place next door, too. Prices were unbelievably low!!!

Atmosphere is ok.. always very busy, I would say very similar to majority of other microbreweries in the US nowadays, but must try all of their beers. Truly outstanding. My favorite was the student loan lager. The beer makes this place unforgettable.

This is a great place to enjoy a locally brewed beer. This place has a great atmosphere, I like that fact that you can bring you own food to eat.

This is a great bar with a good selection of beers and a fun atmosphere. The beers are also pretty cheap! They don't serve food but you can get pizza delivered from Pizza Works next door. Definitely worth a visit.

Good local people with a great craft brew. I really liked the ethics of the place, as they close at 10pm and don't want to deal with drunk people or drunk students. Nice interior and plenty of space to have casual conversations.

Okay so our wonderful son is graduating and our fav place in all of Houghton is the KBC. No, we aren't big drinkers but we love a good beer and this place has it.

Rather you like the lights or the darks, Keweenaw offers a great selection of beers. They do not serve food but the Pizza place next door will deliver to the brewery.

Love this place...Locally Brewed Beer..Nice, Relaxing atmosphere...Fireplace inside, can gather around it...Bring in a board game, and, have some Fun. You can also get a Pizza, bring it there and eat it, and, drink the Beer! Summertime, tables set up outside to soak up the Sun, and surrounding beauty outdoors!
