Hennessy's, in conjunction with Saugatuck Brewing Co., has also brought a new Irish Stout to the Muskegon Market. Boldly placing it smack between Guinness and Smithwick's, some purists might call this sacrilege. The new Stout is even being served with a nitro tap and many have commented on it's similarities with Ireland's most famous ale. Fans of Michigan beer can also rejoice; for in addition to a variety of imports, presently the featured Michigan drafts include: Saugatuck's Neapolitan Milk Stout, Arbor Brewing Bavarian Bliss, New Holland Full Circle, Founder Centennial + Dirty Bastard, and Bell's Oberon and Two-Hearted Ale.
The restaurant and pub has a stage for live music where live jazz, blues, and folk are often appreciated. Happy Hour at the bar includes the $5 burger and beer special, including a choice of variety of burgers (including lamb.) Only a few beers qualify at this price, but a small upgrade of 50 cents will get you the new Stout if preferred. There is also a fine dining area and I highly recommend trying the Rachel, a turkey based "alterna-reuben."
