Slow’s is right next to Michigan Central Station, which is one of those places you MUST visit when you’re in Detroit. The area looks run-down and ghetto (unsurprisingly), but there are a couple of quality stops around Michigan Avenue.

Slow’s is mighty cool, a BBQ-joint with two bars, nice bartenders, jazz music and tons of good beer. Among the brews on tap: Founders Smoked Porter, Griffin Claw Flying Buffalo, Founders Devil Dancer, Right Brain Looping Owl, Witch’s Hat Train Hopper, Short’s Goodnight… mostly Michigan, mostly rare, all high-quality.

Our bartender was burly, sweaty, slightly gruff and super knowledgeable. He gave me a bunch of samples because I was nice. We were in a bit of a hurry to make it to a lunch date so we stayed for only one beer and didn’t try the food, but you’d better bet I will check Slow’s again next time I’m in Detroit!
