The Ann Arbor Scrabble Club meets here (Arbor Brewing Company will henceforth be referred to as ABC) weekly, during happy hour no less, so I've spent many hours in this fine establishment.

They are very gracious hosts -- service is attentive but not hovering, nice and professional. They put up with eccentric Scrabble players, so they will probably not mind you.

There are usually a half-dozen ABC-brewed session beers on tap, some of which rotate, along with a small selection of draft high-gravity ABC beers. Quality is fine, they are tasty and you know what you'll get, never anything bad and nothing really surprising or truly exceptional, at least among the session beers. The Sacred Cow IPA is my go-to but I try to mix it up. There are also bottles from around the country and the world, and that selection is pretty good, but if you're here, don't order beer made somewhere else [note: I know the brewery actually does its production in nearby Ypsilanti].

Food is good, menu could be bigger but there are delicious monthly dishes that use local ingredients and always a vegetarian option. For bar food, the garlic fries can't be beat.

Come during happy hour (4-7? Definitely ends at 7) and all beers under 8% abv are $3 for a 20 oz. pour.

Cool place - a small enough draft list where you can get a flight of all available drafts. Two beers on hand pump at all times is big bonus, great menu and old-fashioned table top shuffleboard.
