TopShelf Pizza & Pub is Muskegon's Best Kept-Secret!

Could TopShelf Pizza & Pub be Muskegon's best kept-secret? Located on a side street off from Apple Ave, (look for the sign!) it could be easy to miss from the main street. However, barely three months into the year, they've already been through enough Founders' beer to earn them a reputation as "Founders' West." Personally, I count at least 2 tappings of Better Half, in addition to multiple kegs of Red's Rye, Double Trouble, and Porter as well as an undisclosed amount of bottles of Kentucky Breakfast Stout, at a minimum; and I've not been keeping track.

Brewery Review of White Flame Brewing Company in Hudsonville

White Flame is Hudsonville's first brewery, which is quite an accomplishment for a City that still had an alcohol ban in place only a few years ago. Currently serving 5 taps, including “Golden Boy,” a 4.5% domestic ale targeting lighter beer drinkers that made it's debut last year at Hopcat's Hoptoberfest. All of White Flame's initial offerings range between 4.5% and 6.0% alcohol. A variety of styles are available from IPAs, to a porter and an oatmeal Stout.
