I wanted to go an pick up a growler, so I called to see what was on tap. Unfortunately no one answered the phone for two days straigt.
So I went to the brewery, but no one was there. Their sign clearly indicated that they open at 4:30, yet by 4:35, there was not an employee to be found in the tap room. The doors were locked, and the chairs were still stacked on the tables.
You may say that 5 minutes is no big deal, but even if someone showed up five minutes late, they were no where near being ready to open.
I run a business myself, and I understand the importance of being open when you say you're going to be opened. I open my office at 8:00. Every day. All the time. If there is an emergency, you will see a note on the door explaining why were are not there- and that has only happened twice in 20 years.
Sorry, Atwater, but you've got to do better.

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.
