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.

An accidental find while going to a Red Wings game in Detroit, Atwater was right around the corner from a pub that had a shuttle that was going to the game. Of course I had to check it out!
When we walked in the rolling door there was some kind of silent auction going on but that didn't deter us from talking a seat at the small bar in the back of the brewery. It took a while to get the attention of the bar tender (understandable considering what was going on) but when we did the beers came quickly (3 double IPAs). Solid beers, but nothing life changing.
The atmosphere was great, the brewery was active. There was a batch in the process of being mashed in, they were checking levels on ferm tanks all the while we sipped on our beers.
The next beer was a Java Vanilla Porter, very nice flavorful beer. That was the last beer for the night before heading to the game, but they did have about 5 other beers on tap.
A great find that kept me interested and I'd recommend if you are in Detroit, not a destination brewery, but solid.
