I'm kinda late posting but Olde Peninsula brewpub has pretty good beer.
The food is very good and if you go during the day, you can watch them brew
while you eat/drink.

I don't know if you've gone yet, but in case you haven't and for anyone else who comes across this thread in the future, New Holland has a stein night on Wednesday nights where you can bring any sized stein and get it filled by one of their mainstays or seasonals (right now I believe this is their kölsch, amber ale, oatmeal stout, IPA and american brown ale) for five dollars, so if you have a stein, it's a great deal. If you come early enough to have dinner, you can usually ask your waiter or waitress and they will let you sample everything before you choose which one you want.

If you have a bigger stein (mine is two liters) I would suggest coming for dinner or going to the cash bar in the back room because they will always fill it for $5 while the front bar will sometimes charge you $7 or underfill anything too much more than one liter. Also, it's popular with nearby Hope College (my alma mater), but it doesn't really start to fill up with the college crowd until 9:30 or later.

Ethel The Frog was my favorite beer that I had at Right Brain. I tried to get Niedermaier to cough up some of the recipe but he was unwilling.
