If you're looking for nifty, cool hole-in-the-wall place that has the ambiance of a speakeasy, Brew Merchant in this city's Washington Square "uptown" is it.

Serving a rotating selection of micro brews from around the state and beyond, select wines from hither and yon, as well as hand-crafted cocktails, B-M is the place if you just want to get away for a quiet cocktail and conversation. Food? A few snacks, but you are welcome to grab some "take-in" pizza or entrées from the terrific Italian Restaurant/Deli across the street. Even my wife, who doesn't like "noisy bars" loves to come here for one of Chris' (the tall blond proprietor guy) special blends.There's even "hand-crafted" music on select nights.

And if your group needs to gather, the side space dubbed "Merchant Hall" serves as a venue for a Monday night "Pub Theology" exchange, a bi-monthly Thursday evening Alternative Rotary Club spot, an occasional League of Women Voters chat, and a host of small fundraisers and idea exchange confabs. This place is one that prides itself on "serving" the community above and beyond the excellent beverages it offers.

If you are looking for a place to hang out with friends or a special someone, but you’re not wanting food, this is the place to go.

Brew Merchant’s ambience is very relaxing. Everything is put together nicely and I highly recommend it. In addition, from a beverage perspective, they have great options.

I’ve been to many other breweries and wineries in other locations and have wished to have something of that caliber in Holland. Brew Merchant brings the experience to Holland. It is the only of its kind here.

We attended a fundraiser in the adjoining Merchant's Hall. Both the main room and Merchant's Hall (additional space) were beautifully decorated. There was plenty of open space to move around and included great furnishings. There were at least 30 different kinds of beer available, as well as a few kinds of cider. We enjoyed our cherry cider but thought the $7.00 price per glass was expensive. If you want to enjoy an adult beveridge without going to a bar or pub, this is a wonderful alternative. It is warm, inviting, relaxing, and peaceful. Perfect for adult conversation and located in the wonderful Washington Square.

Peaceful nice atmosphere to talk after dinner. The girls had a house cocktail which they loved. The new section looks great and provides more seating and a better place for live music. Introduced our friend to the Brew and they loved it. We will be back.

Nice place, well done. Not a regular bar but more of pace to sit and relax with friends. An old store front with nice comfortable seating areas in the front windows. Also, nice selection of local area beers and wines
