We like Waypost Brewing Co. in Fennville for their beer and simple appetizer/charcuterie menu. A small brewery out in the country, they rotate 12 or so taps along with other bottled beers. Waypost has a cool vibe… sit on the patio enjoying one of their mainstay brews while looking out at the surrounding farm. Food trucks and frequent entertainment happen on the weekends.
