This brewery was the last on our trip that we made and was well worth it. The Jolly Pumpkin is located on the Old Mission Penisula which was sort of a odd location and away from practically all the other businesses in Traverse City. The atsmosphere was well, as the place was very relaxing and enjoyable.
Ended up getting some food and also a 5 Beer Sample. The samples I got included: an IPA, a Cherry Wheat, a special Cider, Bam Noire and Siren Amber Ale...all which were wonderful tasting and quite enjoyable. They had a few others available which I shall try the next time being up there.
The service was also quite good, we had a girl that was in training but all of the waitstaff was very nice and helpful, especially in discussing a little about the brewery and what to expect in the future.
I think the best part about getting the sampler was the price itself...$6! The price of the food was moderate also, but great at the same time.
All and all I enjoyed going to the Jolly Pumpkin, will return, look for more beers and highly recommend.

Stopped here on 10-7-13 during a week long Northern Michigan trip. Beautiful building in an excellent area, this place is not your average "beer stop". Definitely a place you could go for a "fancy dinner" dressed up, I wouldn't feel uncomfortable in jeans and a hoodie either.
Everyone that worked here seemed extremely friendly and very welcoming. We started our lunch with the Crab Tater Tots, loved them! We also ordered some pints, they had 2 JP Drafts, 4 North Peak offerings and 2 brews from Old Mission Brew Co. (IIRC). They also had 2 bottled offerings from JP, pretty much standard fare. The beers were good, I had a few from North Peak (Diabolical and Vicious) and I finally found a sour the wife likes, Bam Biere.
After our appetizer, we ordered 2 pizzas with the intention of having leftovers for snacks that evening....we were not let down at all!!! I ordered the Carnivore, my wife the Wild Mushroom. Some of the best pizza I have had in a while!
Overall, not a beer destination. However, after spending a day exploring the Old Mission Peninsula, definitely worth a stop for excellent food with good beer on hand to wash it down.

Went to Jolly Pumpkin at Old Mission with high hopes and left horribly disappointed. Our waitress was AWFUL! She had no personality and seemed like it was paining her to wait on us. Furthermore, the brewery charged $.25 for a taste of beer, which in my opinion is quite cheap.
The beer was average at best, which is kind of always how I have felt about the North Peak/Jolly Pumpkin brews (We drank Jolly Pumpkin's Belgian Pale, Bam Noire, and Oro de Calabeza, as well as North Peak's Amber and Wheat).
The selection was decent and the location/building is beautiful and amazing; however, the food was absolutely, outright atrocious! The chicken pasta had a horrible sauce, and rather than using whole chicken breast, the chicken looked like it came out of a can of cat food.
While the selection, beer, and atmosphere were decent, the service and food at Jolly Pumpkin made me embarrassed to bring my family there.

I loved the Jolly Pumpkin. The Old Mission location is buried a bit off the the beaten path but once you find it, you are in for a treat. Very rustic, vintage, cool vibe going on. The two girls working the front were great! Admitted they were not very knowledgeable but very helpful. I purchased warm half-growlers of some amber beer and Bam, a farmhouse ale. Both were delicious however one was $14.99 which I thought was ridiculous. Bought it anyway! Next time I'm in Traverse, I will definitely visit Jolly Pumpkin in Old Mission. Lots of beer to choose from. All, high quality. Great place!
