Visited on 11/28/08 with BAs brewslut, Deuane and SierraGS.

Arbor boasts a spacious, angular floor plan with a nice-sized bar as well as plenty of tables and booths. The brewpub is decorated with hardwood floors, a tin ceiling and brick walls with lots of brewerania. You can also view the brew tanks from just about anywhere inside.

Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and laid back. We were seated promptly and there were no problems with our order. Our food arrived relatively quickly.

Their selection included six regular taps and two cask, as well as a handful of specialty Belgian brews. During our visit, they were offering a mild, blonde, pils, IPA, porter and a stout, as well as the aforementioned Belgians. Overall, they had a solid lineup with something for everyone.

The quality of the beers ranged from average to very good, with big thumbs up to their cask porter, which was a hit at our table. Nothing really blew my mind, but everything I sampled was solid.

As for the food, I ordered a cajun chicken burrito with black beans, cilantro, sour cream, rice and salsa with a side of rice and beans. I found my selection to be extremely fresh and flavorful. Overall, food and drink prices were very reasonable.

Ann Arbor is a really nice town, and I will certainly visit again next time I visit the area. I also picked up an Arbor Brewing long sleeve T-shirt with one of my favorite Frank Zappa quotes on the back. Nice find! (1,452 characters)

This was a quick stop drank 2 pints. One a very meh sour and a nice chili porter. Service was self service to the bar. The bar tender was a bit slow. The selection was what was expected with a couple positive bumps. The food I did not try. We used to have an option for N/A. So I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say food is at least average and edible. (364 characters)
