The Gallery Brewery - CLOSED

Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

The Gallery Brewery is a small Michigan microbrewery with an emphasis on artistry . . . in our beer, our food, the gallery on our walls, and the live music every weekend. We sell only the small-batch artisan beers we brew on-site, and we offer a small but eclectic menu. We are a perfect stop, just off I-96, between Grand Rapids and Lansing.

This establishment is Permanently Closed. Average beer selection and minimal good menu items. No longer an option in Portland

You have to try the fruit pizza! It has a sweet glaze but it’s savory enough to be a dinner option and not a dessert. It’s been a few months since we’ve been there so I forget if it’s apple or pear but it’s amazing....More

We made a quick stop in after seeing a sign on the freeway. We each ordered a flight, enjoyable, but nothing really stood out. I was happy to see that they were part of the Tagabrew trail, so I added another tag to my collection....More

Have never stopped in Portland. But this is a really cool little river town. This place has great beer choices. Yes food list is short. But the choices are amazingly creative and high quality. Great service and great setting

To be safe I ordered a hamburger. I believe the meat was fresh but still pressed and formed into the perfect circle. I am never impressed with circle burgers. The grilled onions came out as steamed onions. Set my burger down upside down with the...More
