Being fans of their Sapient Trip, we booked a hotel room and took the drive from Detroit to visit this place. We surprised to find it was a tiny shack partially hidden behind a party store. What gives?
We walked into a tiny place only to see it was full of people from all walks of life, but most seemed to be locals. With the place being so small, we were invited by a mother and daughter to sit at their table, as they were nearly done. After some nice conversation, they left.
We ordered our second round and food, and invited two couples to join us at our table, as the place was getting busy. Definitely regulars, we got the story of all the cool handmade mugs on the walls, and of the owner. (Plus a bonus tour of the brewery - very cool.)
Needless to say, we ended up staying until closing time after being completely taken in by the experience. We had at least one of all beers on tap, and took a growler of a new favorite (Perkulator) home. Food went great with beer, the portions were huge. But what really sealed the deal was the atmosphere and the people there. Worth the trip.
