1.8/5  rDev -50.8%

They only had a few beers on tap, and what they had was all 5.2% unless you went with a pub-cider. Some of the beer was alright, but it was well below my expectation of quality when it comes to craft beer. I probably would not go back to this place.

Also, they had an employee in the parking lot telling people where "not" to park. I thought that was somewhat counter-productive to that type of a position.

3.64/5  rDev -0.5%

Ghettoblaster beer put this brewery on my radar. I was amazed that there was actually a beer w that name. We stopped in for lunch, on our way out of town. Parking is troublesome, and basically ignore the large lot in front and park in back. As you enter, you will find a large poured concrete bar. They prob had 6-8 beers available, and they are all reasonably priced. They also have a fine pizza selection on their menu. I got the meat lovers and my wife got the veggie. They offer growler fills, and basically a build your own six pack w singles also available. My pik six was four Ghettoblasters and 2 IPA's.

Staff are very friendly, though easily distracted. This place has the feel of a neighborhood bar. Overall I was happy w my visit, and would come back.

2.68/5  rDev -26.8%

Atmosphere: pretty cool looking little place. has the effect of being in the brewing room without the negative smells or messiness that is associated with

Quality: decent beers not the worst I have had but nothing I'd seek out

Service: our waitress was good but a bit set up for failure. they had some serious issues when i was there. The computer for billing broke so we had to use cash, the pizza order printer broke and they missed making pizzas for about 15 minutes. The guy who should have been making pizzas or noticing the machine was broken was too busy talking about growing marijuana with friends who dropped in

Selection: not too impressive. only about 5 beers and at least 2 were only in bottles.

Food: their pizza, at least the one the guy didn't burn trying to catch back up, was pretty good

Overall: Obviously wasn't too impressed with this place. I won't be recommending it for anyone who isn't a hipster with a taste for mediocre beers because they are brewed in detroit
