this place is awesome. BYOF (food) and grab a freshly brewed Voodoo Vader....
you're pretty much gonna be sitting right in the middle of the floor of operations, gives you an understanding of all the work that goes into brewing all of this magic.

Sunday morning in Detroit, doing the usual ruin-porn sights, the art museum and a couple of beer joints… Atwater was our first stop, not too far from the hotel we were staying at. It is a working brewery and it smells like such, I like that. The taproom is basically an L-shaped bar inside the warehouse, with a long communal table to boot.

On tap this day: Decadent Chocolate Ale, Teufel Bock, Hop-a-Peel, Detroit Pale Ale, Conniption DIPA, Voodovator… 12 taps plus a cider for the ladies.

The place is pretty cool- I love having a beer inside a brewery! And the prices and service are fine.
But the problem is the poor quality of Atwater’s beers. The Pale Ale tastes like the IPA tastes like the DIPA. And so on. All watery, indistinguishable, mediocre. Terrible stuff, I have had homebrewed beers that are way better than what this commercial, nationally-distributed brewery puts out. What a shame.
