The Dark Horse Brewery is a microbrewery and tap room in Marshall, MI. The Dark Horse brews a variety of beers and beer styles, including the Crooked Tree India Pale Ale, Amber Ale, Raspberry Ale, Sapient Trip Ale, Boffo Brown Beer, and Black Bier. Several seasonal and experimental brews are also produced. They also offer a wide variety of food, with the cuisine centered around items which can be produced in their pizza ovens. Dark Horse put out a significant amount of beer for their tank size but are still able to hand-fold and stock every six-pack produced. The brewery has won several medals at various brewing competitions.
The brewery and taproom are located on property owned by Aaron Morse's Father, proprietor of a convenience store adjacent to the taproom. Seating capacity in the taproom itself is limited to a few dozen, with room at the bar for perhaps 7-8. The most striking feature of the taproom is the many custom beer mugs hanging from hooks. The ceiling beams are literally covered with ceramic mugs.
Mug club members at the Dark Horse have a punch-card system where every sixth mug is .50 cents. They are also known to clock-in and -out at the time clock located near the front door.
A recent addition is a store selling Dark Horse merchandise and home brewing supplies in an outbuilding across the small parking lot.
