Beer is good, didn’t eat any food so can’t comment (although this site wouldn’t let me not give food a rating, so its in the middle!). VERY thorough process for Covid, not totally clear on ordering, pickup, so some lines were there, but all in all a good experience. A great outdoor space, and once you know you need reservations, it works - just be careful trying to stop in on your own - choices for seats may be limited or non-existent, particularly on rain/cold days!

Thanks for your review, Pat! Our focus is beer, but we do offer simple bar snacks, or guests can always pack a picnic. We take everyone's health and safety very seriously, and have introduced new procedures to support social distancing efforts during this ongoing pandemic. Our seating is reduced by half, as per state and county guidelines, so reservations are essential especially on weekends. Thanks for helping us on that front! We hope you're able to visit again soon. Cheers!

I've been to a few breweries in the area and Waypost is outstanding. Fantastic beer selection (they think way beyond the oversaturated market of IPAs and subpar lagers) and the farm setting is super charming.
I was also really impressed by how seriously they're taking precautions for COVID—reservations, plenty of table space, order through phone, etc. Felt very safe during my visit.

I have found it difficult to find a place to have drinks with friends in public spaces during the pandemic. The set up of the tables and the attentiveness of the staff made me feel safe and comfortable. The experience was the best I have had at any restaurant/bar/brewery since Covid-19 has changed all of our daily lives.

Waypost had a great location but the man at the window who seemed to be in charge was rude and unwelcoming. He was more concerned about being bossy than ensuring the costumers had a good experience. We will never return to this brewery. It was a terrible experience. Not worth your time with so many other great breweries in the area.

Good beers. No food but you can bring in your own. They require you to view an online menu, place your order online, pay online, pick up your order at the bar, and then return the used glasses to the bussing station when done. Considering I did everything but pour the beer, I think the 20% tip we left was mighty generous! The online ordering process takes a while, especially if you are placing an order for several people. I understand they are trying to be as contactless as possible, but there has to be a better way. Not everyone has a phone, has the data speed to place an online order (especially out in the country), or is comfortable making their purchases online over wifi. Not everyone is tech-savvy so that was a big turn off. It is also extremely hot due to the privacy walls. Need fans!

Waypost Brewing Co.
Responded on August 14, 2020

Thanks for visiting, and we're glad you enjoyed the beer! We appreciate your patience with our contactless system. If online ordering is not accessible, you are always welcome to order directly at the bar. We have single-use paper menus available for this purpose. It can get hot out there in the summer, and the screening fence helps to provide shade and reduces traffic noises, creating a calm, peaceful atmosphere on the patio. Limited indoor, air-conditioned seating is also available. Cheers!

We made reservations at Waypost Brewery as we enjoy tasting new beers when we travel to new locations. It was ridiculous! They took social distancing way to far. They sat us outside at a picnic table with at least 12 chickens (maybe more) running around in the area. Half of them were under the table they seated us at. The family at the other table next to us were trying to lure the chickens away from their children with french fries as I think they kids were afraid of them. We really wanted to do a tasting but I could not scan the menu with my Android phone, which they said I could. There was no one from the restaurant available to talk to. It smelled from the chickens so unfortunately we left. We will go back there and give it another try, if they are still in business next year, when we visit the area again. I will blame the bad experience on Covid like everyone else in the world does when they try to cover up their problems.

Waypost was a cool experience! Local Michigan saisons and farmhouse styles in the perfect setting: a blueberry farm! We sat outside with our dog (who was fascinated with the roaming chickens - they have 31 of them) and had a flight of delicious brews! The blueberry basil was unique and so good. I particularly loved their saison - really nice job with that one! Although Waypost only serves small snacks/bites, there was a food truck serving Greek food - gyros were fantastic. We had so much fun we ended up leaving with some bottles to enjoy at home, a pint glass, and a cozy sweatshirt to commemorate the occasion. Hope to make the trip from Chicago to visit you again soon!
