I’m lucky enough to be local and get to enjoy Ellison on a regular basis. They consistently offer high quality beer and are a hidden gem in the Lansing area. I personally feel their beers are superior to another local brewery who has gained national...More

We went here on a recent trip and the only complaint I had about the place is that they only offer the expensive stainless steel growlers or pre-made cans of beer. The beer was good though and they had a food truck right out side.

Tucked away from the main drag. Cool spirits and nice brews. Bring your own food, buy from food truck, or order for delivery. Popcorn provided. Monday night trivia is Fun. Serving staff is excellent.

This is a nice tucked away brewery. It is a little hard to find, but worth it. Good place to have a few brews. They do not have food, but you can bring it in. Good selection, we liked all we tried.

The first thing you smell when you walk in is the not so pleasant and overpowering aroma of mash. If you happen to wear glasses they will instantly fog up due to the lack of adequate ventilation in the place. The building looks and feels...More

Tried more than a few Ales and Lagers. Compared each while cleansing the pallet with tons of pop corn. Great, friendly service! Fun!

The Brewery is a little out of the way in an industrial area, but certainly worth the trip. They serve good quality beverages in a rustic bar area with a view of the immaculately maintained brewing vessels.
